Cold Jet, Hall 10, Booth D48
Cold Jet, specialised in dry ice technology, will be presenting its new PCS 60. The PCS 60 features Cold Jet’s patented Particle Control System (PCS). The PCS precisely cuts dry ice into diamond shaped particles in the exact dimensions chosen by the operator (3 mm to 0.3 mm and 28 sizes in between). This allows the user to have versatility options in their cleaning applications. With the PCS, a plastics processor can use one machine to clean many types of surfaces, such as the surface of injection moulds, deburring and deflashing, to cleaning injection screws.
With a 7” LCD colour screen and digital controls, the PCS 60 provides an intuitive display that allows the user to easily view and adjust blasting parameters and machine settings. The machine features programmable and password-protected application recipes. This feature allows users to set and save blasting parameters, such as blast pressure, particle size and feed rate, which increases efficiency and ensures the right settings for each individual application. A plastics processor can save one application recipe for one of their moulds and another application recipe for a separate mould. This prevents user error and ensures the right parameters are used for each unique application.
The optimised design, including a “straight through” air system and redesigned SureFlow feeding system, minimises air pressure loss and dry ice sublimation within the machine. This allows the user to maximise air supply yield and reduce dry ice waste. The PCS 60 is IoT enabled via Cold Jet’s Industry 4.0 solution, Cold Jet Connect. The system provides remote monitoring and diagnostics while allowing users to collect and manage data and employ tools for optimum performance and productivity.
