Ciject® Two Machine Options
Solvent Level Sensor
  • Non-intrusive solvent level sensor that detects if level is insufficient for operation
  • Prevents start-up and warns operator if level is low
  • Catalyst Level Sensor (Polyester/Vinylester version only)
  • Non-intrusive capacitive sensor that detects if level is insufficient in operation
  • Prevents start-up and warns operator if level is low
  • Catalyst/Hardener and Resin Flow Measurement System
  • Sophisticated flow sensing system based on gear-type flow meters
  • Sensors available for both resin and catalyst/hardener pump outputs
  • Output displayed graphically and numerically on operator screen

  • Note: Sensors to be specified to suit required mix ratio and output range
  • Motorised Component System (MCR)
  • Automatic motorized servo control of B Component level; linked to recipes
  • Progressive catalyst injection for automatic control during injection of large components - this allows injection to start at one ratio and progressively increase during the injection to finish at a second ratio
  • System uses high quality Omron AC servo motor system with digital rotary encoder for continual position monitoring and origin detection
  • Auto-origin function on machine start-up
  • Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)
  • RFID mould recognition system enables supervisor to program tag attached to mould. Operator scans tag which sets machine injection parameters. Allows unlimited number of moulds to be identified by the machine. Prevents incorrect injection settings.
  • Tags can be attached to mould, are self powered and are highly resistant to damage.
  • This system removes the requirement for an operator to select the correct recipe and allows unlimited numbers of moulds to be instantly recognised by the injection machine.
