Permanent Temperature Control

High temperature sliprings for transmission of mould temperatures enabling the rotational moulder to:

  • Optimise heating and cooling cycles
  • Reduce the number of reject parts
  • Increase the number of parts made per day
  • Provide diagnostic checks on troublesome mouldings

K-KONTROL now comes with now comes with heavy plate design to protect against mis-use and rough handling.
