profiTEMP hot runner controller: with integrated injection molding know-how!

Service is our mission

The innovative product family with unlimited zone-number possibility

The new profiTEMP is characterized by a clear and uniform built and operating concept - from the smallest desktop with 6 zones to the biggest tower with 250 zones and touch screen. The number of zones can be expanded, almost indefinitely, by combining profiTEMP devices. The profiTEMP link function makes this possible, it automatically synchronizes control cabinets for important hot runner functions.

One family - one format! All devices are of the same small positioning surface and are easily stackable. Its interior is neatly arranged, well-organized and the plug-in cards are identical. All profiTEMP hot runner controllers are based on the same operating principle. Your advantage: you know one, you know all! This shortens training times, simplifies usage, provides flexibility for subsequent expansions, and minimizes down-time during servicing.

Inner value-add: The new operating concept, it thinks along and, if necessary, becomes active

Setpoint Grouping of zones Sensor allocation Parameters

PSG group develops and produces nozzles and manifolds, aside from hot runner controllers. Hence, we know the requirements in plastics processing in-depth and we share our know-how through expert software with users. This shortens the time for programming and prevents bad operations.

The Info-Board ensures the use of the full array of functions PSG is not satisfied to have impressive functions alone. We support operators with our Info Board to have an optimal use of the full array of functions on those machines without a touch-screen . This ensures, for example, that monitoring functions are not overlooked and therefore remain unused.

Data-export via USB for quality assurance and service profiTEMP is equipped with a USB port. All information is available on demand and we support a large number of functions from data- and quality assurance..

Comfortable user-feeling from foil-keyboard to touch screen

We had a clear objective when developing the operating concept: As simple and as common as possible. To achieve this, we have assimilated handling to modern Smart phones. Hence, whoever knows to how operate his Smart phone will immediately be familiar with the operating logic of profiTemp. For example, we have integrated technologies like "Alphablending". Nonrelevant areas are darkened to grasp important areas at the first glance.

Self-explanatory softkeys in three languages Nobody needs to memorize the functions of keys. It is sufficient to press a key for 2 seconds and the explanation appears in the LED display.

Process security through user administration Absolute process security is reached by preventing unauthorized input on the device. Here, profiTEMP offers two password-protected user levels. This prevents machine operators to reach functions for which they are not authorized. User rights are administered through freely selectable passwords.

Service is our mission

Reliability through MoldCheck: Before the beginning of production the system core is checked

MoldCheck is a complete diagnosis of electric conditions, including wiring. This ensures a 100% functional guarantee of the electric of the hot runner.

Production reliability at the press of a button MoldCheck runs a functional check of heaters and sensors including their correct allocation. This ensures that production runs smoothly and that part quality remains constantly high. The integrated pre-heat function minimizes stand-still times of the injection mold machine when changing tools.

Exact error analysis shortens maintenance works Concrete notifications accelerate error search and provide concrete information towards causes, so that simple repairs can be carried out by non-service personnel.

Open to the world: profiTEMP is easily adjusted to electricity networks and languages

You can employ profiTEMP at any place in the world. It "speaks" German and English fluently and quickly learns a third language, (ASCII character set required). PSG provides language files for common languages free of charge. An adjustment is so easy that users on-site can carry out the language expansion.

Simple adjustment to voltages This - for hot runner controllers - unique concept of grid integration makes adjusting to operating in foreign power grids, e.g. the U.S., absolutely uncomplicated.

PSG-Connect: Fast remote support

PSG-Connect is the fascinatingly easy-to-use solution for the worldwide, remote maintenance of the profiTEMP hot runner controllers. PSG-Connect is pre-configured and immediately ready for use. PSG-Connect is available in several configurations. As a cable-based modem (analog, ISDN), via the company network, directly via DSL or as a mobile Internet access via GSM or UMTS.

Secure Internet connection via VPN Aside from the classical remote maintenance tasks, such support in troubleshooting, PSG-Connect can be used for many services. PSG offers a wide range of services. Maintenance contracts guarantee that profiTEMP is regularly updated to the latest software. Or our experts assist you to answer your questions in a meeting.

profiTEMP technology is amazingly simple Possible to integrate

The technology of profiTEMP is suitable for installation in machines. Modular racks from 12 to 96 zones available that have the full range of profiTEMP functions inside. Our components are equipped with a multitude of interfaces, so they can quickly be integrated in existing structures. Flexibility and the fulfillment of customer requests is our strength. PSG provides you with an inexpensive solution for multi-zone hot runner controls.

Temperature control with the sensitivity of a finger tip In temperature control, ideas are an important part of our business. Our engineers contribute sector and industry competence during the planning phase. You will reach your objectives, such as: process-reliability, cost reduction, on-time production, smooth start-ups,...

Service is our mission

Cost reductions through a well-thought and modular build-concept

All profiTEMP devices are based on a uniform build- and production concept. Whether desktop, tower, or machine integration. The uniform concept also provides cost advantages in development, production, and purchasing. We pass on these advantages to you through an extremely competitive price.

Stackable system configuration All plug-cards are identical from desktop to tower. This simplifies warehousing, you can swap cards freely during maintenance. And production can commence.

Well-organized interior facilitates maintenance and service A well-organized interior provides a fast overview and helps, in the event of maintenance works, reduce stand-still times and production-outage costs to a minimum.
