Engel upgrades its e-flomo unit
e-flomo Engel has upgraded its e-flomo electronic temperature control and water distribution device, which is used to cool injection molds. Unlike a typical water manifold, e-flomo also incorporates electrical control valves that allow flow rates to be adjusted and controlled automatically.
What’s new? The iQ flow control software, which was introduced at the K show. The software integrates e-flomo with the temperature control unit (TCU), and uses the data collected by e-flomo to adjust the pump speed of the TCU.
Benefits Better energy efficiency and fewer rejected parts. Because e-flomo enhances process stability, reject rates are reduced, while automatic speed control reduces energy use. Also, the TCU’s pump operates only when needed, reducing wear on moving parts and increasing the unit’s life.
