Test System Ensures Proper Function of Cooling Circuits

AST Technology, a sister company of Progressive Components, will showcase a system that enables moldmakers to test mold cooling circuits to ensure they are working properly and efficiently.

AST Technology, a sister company of Progressive Components, will showcase a system that enables moldmakers to test mold cooling circuits to ensure they are working properly and efficiently. The System Cooling Test Rig complements the company’s System Cooling platform, which gives molders the ability to monitor water flow and temperature circuits inside the mold.

Data from the testing system can be used to qualify molds for production and as part of the company’s benchmarking process. Additionally, the system monitors every circuit in the mold individually, allowing issues to be detected and fixed prior to production. Those mold cooling circuits also need to be maintained regularly to remove scale and rust in order to ensure ongoing maximum productivity. The system enables flow and pressure to be controlled exactly to simulate the production setup.
