Resin Transfer Molding
Accurate control of temperature and epoxy resin flow is important during resin transfer molding. For the epoxy resin to have an even and thorough flow, the resin must be at a temperature high enough to allow it to flow, yet not burn the resin. With the help of a temperature controller, the temperature of the resin is accurately controlled under different conditions through the different PID operating modes. Another controller, with a flow transducer, is used in this process to control the flow of the epoxy resin. The controller provides information on the temperature and flow rate to the computer through an RS-485 serial communication option.
