The CMME is a small profile footprint charging generator specially designed for IML applications. The unit has fully integrated high voltage parts and only needs a 24V DC supply. The housing is compact, robust and only weighs 480 grams which makes it perfect for end of arm mounting in IML pick and place handling systems. It can easily withstand the high G-forces occurring during the IML process.
A signal will become active when the label(s) have accumulated enough electrostatic charge indicating that the charging is finished. This signal can be used by the machine interface to decide to stop charging. A second stage in the cycle OK signal will indicate that the charge on the mandrell has dropped below safe level to start moving the mandrell out of the mould.This innovative feature completely eliminates the guess work and experimental setup for each individual IML application, and when changing product or label.
The best part is – It will save you money!
Using the parameters generated by the CMME you can drastically reduce the charging time and thus the total cycle time of the injection moulding process.
The cycle OK signal even gives you more information about the process. If during the charging process the charging level deviates more than 10% from the setpoint, the cycle OK signal will not be activated, telling you that charging was not successful. This could mean one or more of the labels are not present, causing too much voltage leakage.
Indication LED’s on both sides of the end of the CMME unit will display general information about the status of the unit.
