ControlSoft offers free Web training seminar on extruder temperature control

Feb. 10, 2006

A new, and free, web-based training seminar from ControlSoft Inc. entitled, "Extruders – Improving Product Quality and Increasing Product Throughput", provides an overview of the inherent problems in controlling barrel temperatures for extruders and injection molding machines. Participants learn control strategies to improve operations and product consistency. This seminar is designed for automation specialists, both novice and expert. The next one-hour seminar is scheduled for March 25, 2006, at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time.

One of the most difficult control applications is extrusion barrel zone temperature control characterized by temperature overshoot and steady state temperature oscillations. The control problem is further aggravated because of multiple zones and the different dynamics for cooling and heating. This training seminar provides an overview of the control problems, causes, and resulting production problems. Participants learn about specially designed control strategies that are applied with the existing control systems covering both start-up and steady state operations.

  • Fast startup with minimum overshoot to minimize startup time.
  • Tight temperature control during production.
  • Fast response for product or setpoint changes.

A broadband internet connection is recommended to view the seminar. This is a space-limited event.
