RJG’s 6-mm cavity pressure sensor is designed for high-cavitation molds with small, tightly packed ejector pins. A model rated to 50 lbs for use with ejector pins as large as 2 mm in diameter is newly available, and another rated to 250 lbs for pins ranging to 4.5 mm in diameter will be available later this year.

The 6-mm sensor matches the size of the company’s 9211 piezoelectric button sensor but is designed to be easier to use, since the connector cables can be bent and folded without damage, allowing them to be maneuvered around obstacles.

The new sensor is part of the company’s Multi-Channel Strain Gage sensor line, which was designed to save space and simplify in-mold installations for molds with four or more sensors. The system allows molders to connect as many as eight sensors to one connection point on the mold.
