Madison Heights, Mich. - DME Company, a leading global provider of mold technologies, has unveiled its new 16-Zone Hydraulic Valve Gate Sequencer. The new sequencer brings molders responsive control of more valve gates, helping meet increasing demands for precise, sophisticated molding.

While increasing the maximum number of timer-based zones from 4 to 16, the 16-Zone Valve Gate Sequencer provides the same reliability and accuracy customers have come to expect of DME's Valve Gate hydraulic controls.

Offering faster response than typical valve gate controllers, the highly efficient sequencer also greatly reduced electrical use over the life of the unit. Plus, its new PLC touch screen makes controlling the system easier than ever.

"DME has been a leader in hot runner technology for nearly 40 years because we never stop striving to be a better resource for our customers," said Craig Kovacic, Hot Runner Business Manager. "Our customers want not only more cost-effective solutions, they want more user-friendly options and control over their systems."

The control and convenience features of the 16-Zone Valve Gate Sequencer include: Control over electronics to match the hydraulic zones instead of using physical timers per zone An external alarm contact Ability to save and load mold recipes Small visual icons that show valve position for each zone Circular log that shows the last 200 changes Dual-time functions that allow each zone to be programmed with a delay-time and an on-time Manual Mode that can turn all outputs on /off and cycle time on/off

For global customers, the controllers can operate from a wide supply of operating voltages for easier relocation between plants and countries. This plug can be removed and replaced with any number of 240 VAC plugs for instantaneous operation.

The 16-Zone Valve Gate Sequencer is among several new additions to DME's industry-leading selection of hot runner components, systems and services.
