Our customer requires the amount of resin and roving used during their manufacturing operation to be calculated, monitored, and recorded on a job-by-job basis, providing them with accurate costing and stock information.

Texmate installed a Tiger 320 Series controller and connected it to the resin feedline flow transducer and the roving weighing platform pressure transducer.

The flow transducer measures the flow of the resin used, while the pressure transducer measures the weight of glass roving used.

Both measurements are displayed on the controller. From these inputs, the controller calculates and displays the ratio of glass roving to resin used.

These figures can then be downloaded as a job recipe and used for future reference when the job is repeated.
