Kistler Group’s "Curve Viewer" Allows Quick Access to Injection Analysis  
Analysis of the injection molding process yields information about the effects of a wide variety of parameters and unlocks the potential for optimizing mold quality and cost effectiveness. Database- and web-based software CoMo MIS Type 2829A... stores, visualizes and analyzes process data acquired by the CoMo Injection system monitoring Type 2869B... during injection molding. A browser is used to retrieve from the database information about all of the current and completed production runs and batches. The new "Curve Viewer" module allows quick access to the curves of all of the saved cycles. The monitoring functions and their results (good/bad parts) can be displayed at the same time.

New Vertical Magnetic Slide Conveyors Offer Space Saving Design   Emerson introduces auto-lockdown network security for the DeltaV™ digital automation system
Storch Magnets has introduce a new series of vertical magnectic conveyors that save space by moving components vertically from 90 degrees and higher. They are ruggedly built for long life and after many years of service can be remanufactured for extended life because of their 304-stainless steel rebuild able track.   AUSTIN, TEXAS – "Security made easy" is how Emerson Process Management refers to its newest addition to DeltaV™ security functionality. Built into the new family of DeltaV smart switches, Emerson has added auto-lockdown security capabilities that allow a DeltaV user to automatically lock and unlock the port access of all the switches in the network. This lockdown will disable all unused network connections (ports) on the switch. One of the biggest security vulnerabilities in a control system is that network devices, such as Ethernet-based network switches, are located in unsecure locations out in the process – easily accessible to everyone. Locking down switch ports will prevent accidental connection and virtually prevent the deliberate connection of an unauthorized device to the switch.
