Husky Tandem

01 / 04

JVH Engineering has designed a controls platform utilizing Bosch Rexroth closed loop controls in conjunction with Rockwell Software and an Allen-Bradley CompactLogix system. This platform has been used to create a predesigned solution for all Husky Quadloc tandem injection molding machines. These tested solutions work on A/M injection and A/B side by side injection and use the most up to date Allen-Bradley technology along with customer specified Rockwell Software® to allow for ease of use. All our solutions are designed with the intent of delivering a turnkey control design that allows for full customer manipulation.

Husky Quadlock tandem’s, a mechanically well-built injection molding machine based off the Husky Quadlock, has many control system design flaws. Husky has stopped servicing these machines leaving customers in limbo between fixing or replacing these machines. That is where the JVH Engineering controls solution comes in. Purchasing this solution will fix the original flaws of your machine, while receiving full service and support from JVH Engineering on all controls needs.

Our solution is comprised of a full control upgrade as well as an optional servo valve replacement. The new cost-effective proportional valves will deliver fast, smooth, and quiet machine operation. Upgrading from the old control system to a new CompactLogix system will also improve barrel and mold temperature response, creating a more repeatable production process. This solution will also allow for the use of only one injection unit for times when two is unnecessary.

Features
