Useful accessories make MTP
Presses more versatile and
Provides a running hard copy picture of performance factors -
sorting out pressure, time and temperature data and reproducing them in
digital tabulations and graphics charts with numerical values.
Automatically titles each print-out with a run number,
ID number, calendar date, time and
program number. A report shows data for platen
and tool temperature, force, dwell time, calendar date and time,
in addition to any optional displays.
Rapid Remote Control
This option for all MTP presses is a versatile and
powerful process control tool. From any PC with
an RS-232C serial port, Rapid Remote allows
data collection for these applications -
Platen Height Gauge
- Programs can be downloaded allowing a 'library' of cures on materials to be saved.
- Programming can consist of 6 programs of 5 steps each,
which can be linked in a closed loop.
This feature is fully supported by the MTP and measures the
distance between the two platens with a ±0.250 in. range to a
resolution of ±0.001 in. Values are presented on the front panel
display and Digigraph data print-outs.
MTP Press Additional Options
Precision engineered to
maintain close monitoring
of processes and tests
Miniclave & Controller
The Miniclave System simulates a small autoclave.
It utilizes the heat and clamping force of a press to
provide an autoclave environment for R&D, prototyping
and small production applications. Data acquisition
with the digigraph is available.
By providing programmable power outputs, the Event
Controller can run many operations. By plugging pressure
and vacuum valves into the controller, one
can automatically control the temperature, pressure
and vacuum in the miniclave with the press. The Event
Controller also regulates the operation of automatic
loaders or unloaders and the press.
Uniform-Temp Heat Plate
Non-Uniform temperatures can produce a nonuniform
cure which means non-uniform results. This heat plate
maintains temperature consistency across the entire
platen surface. Our Heat Plate controls temperature to
within 2°F of set value...and has thermal uniformity
over its 8 inch square ground flat steel surface to ±4°F.
Automatic Timing Feature optional.
Vacuum Chamber Upgrade
All our standard MTP presses can be vacuum
chambered either as original equipment or as a retrofit
system that will permit differing noncorrosive,
nonexplosive atmospheres in full, partial pressure, or
