Introduced last month at the NPE show, Solution 21 from EGS Gauging (formerly Eurotherm Gauging Systems) in Billerica, Mass., has a beta gauge, one or two scanner frames, and graphic display of gauge profiles and trending--just like EGS's high-end System 21, but with fewer options and simpler displays.
Includes instruments for testing rheological, mechanical, thermal, electrical, optical, and weathering properties; moisture and compositional analysis; color and appearance measurement; and off-line inspection and gauging. Also includes testing services.
These bells and whistles include Battenfeld's Extrol 6016 computer controls, on-line thickness gauging, internal bubble cooling, oscillating haul-off, and automatic bubble-width control that adjusts from 84-in.
Another big category of extrusion exhibits is controls, where you'll find significant introductions in the areas of dimensional gauging, whole-line controls, and even plantwide control and monitoring systems.
"Because of its sensitivity to temperature and composition, stand-alone capacitance gauging is problematic, which is why other retrofit systems are sold as an entire concept, including gravimetrics and film-width control," Fishman states.
Also, a number of brand-new or greatly revamped gauging systems appeared for the first time.
Nowadays, though, the rub is that productivity and flexibility cannot come at the expense of quality--which explains many of the new computerized control and gauging systems that will appear at the show.
