Digital Temperature Control Systems

We are excited to be working with Watttron, bringing their thermoforming and sealing technologies to Australia.

Watttron Cera2heat

Watttrons patented cera2heat® matrix heating system enables heterogeneous, precisely defined contact heating of surfaces for thermoforming packaging for food and beverage applications.

The system is designed around a large number of regularly arranged, small heating pixels. The temperature of each pixel can be individually programmed and controlled – this gives incredible precision to the process.

The heating system consists of 40 x 40 mm modules. These can be arranged in any order and combined to form individual areas. Thanks to its modular design, cera2heat® can be installed or retrofitted in almost any machine.

 

  • Heating rates: up to 100 K/s
  • Temperature range: up to 200°C (higher temperatures on request)
  • Power range: up to 50 W/cm²
  • Production ready within a few seconds
  • Realizable heating area: practically unlimited due to modular concept
  • Size of a heating pixel: 5 mm × 5 mm
  • Size of one module: 40 mm × 40 mm (8×8 heating pixels)
  • Integrated temperature sensors on heating surface for optimal process control and temperature control accuracy
  • Control hardware integrated, operation via user interface (GUI) or by integration into machine control system

Watttron Cera2seal

The Watttron cera2seal® heating system is specially designed for plastic sealing and welding processes, such as plastic membranes over plastic cups/tubs.

Temperature sensors are integrated on the surface for precise control of the actual temperature distribution. This allows the sealing of plastics that have traditionally been difficult to work with – such as the more recycling-friendly Polypropylene.

 

  • Heating rates: up to 50 K/s
  • Sealing temperature range: up to 200°C (higher temperatures on request)
  • Power range: up to 200 W/cm²
  • Production ready within a few seconds
  • Realizable heating area: application specific
  • Close proximity of heating circuits and temperature sensors to the sealing surface for optimum process control and temperature control accuracy
  • Control and regulation hardware integrated or as control cabinet temperature controller, integration into machine control system by means of common fieldbus protocols (EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP etc.)
  • Heating and sensor circuits in close proximity to the sealing surface for optimal optimum process control and temperature control accuracy
  • Control and regulation hardware integrated or as control cabinet temperature controller
  • Integration into machine control system via common fieldbus protocols (Modbus/TCP, Ethernet/IP etc.)
