The eDART is new AND improved.
(yes, that is possible)

Due to customer requests the v10 eDART:

  • Is touchscreen friendly! Purchase a 17" Elo touchscreen directly from RJG
  • Gives you easy access to the process details you need. An example: if you want to know the cooling rate, just touch the cooling portion of the curve.
  • Allows you with one click to see where your actual process is, in comparison to your template (for mold, machine, and material).

    For upgrade information contact our customer support department.

More sensor options with an eDART conx!
You now have the ability to configure the following temperature and flow sensors in the Version 9.2 and Version 10 software for an eDART Conx:

- Mold Surface
- Parting Line
- Water In
- Water Out

Flow (Delta Pressure)
- Across Mold
- Across Press Manifold
- Auxiliary (Version 9.2 only)

eDART Software v10.2 Released

The 10.2 software now gives you the ability to view cycle values (plastic pressure, fill time, speed, hold pressure, etc) by clicking on the area of the graph for which you want to know the values.

The Mold Match Meter now works like the Machine Match Meter as it now gives you all critical values numerically on one screen. With one click you can see your process values and any values that are out of specification are highlighted for quick identification.

For further details or to upgrade contact Curt Otto via email or call 231-947-3111 x151.

Advanced eDART Training
January 15-17 - 2012 Menomonie, WI
This course is intended for anyone that is a regular eDART user and wants to learn more advanced functions and how to apply them to their process. The class size is kept to a minimum to allow plenty of time for each participant to get hands-on training. The class includes both classroom instruction and hands-on eDART time for each participant. The methods & technology we teach dove-tail with most “green” initiatives and our training can often be offset through green initiative grants. Click here for details!

RJG Technology Day
November 28 - Juarez, Chihuahua
RJG’s Technology Day seminar focuses on systematic processing strategies and advanced processing technologies that will allow you to consistently manufacture the highest quality parts. Molders are finding that three key components provide positive results: cavity pressure sensors, process control systems and employee training. Individually, each of these components have a positive effect on part quality, when combined the results can be staggering. This seminar is a must for anyone responsible for the development and manufacturing of plastic parts, or directly involved in part quality issues. This seminar will be conducted in Spanish.
