Low-cost hot-runner control hits U.S. shores. (Keeping up with Injection Molding).

A new low-cost, non-expandable, hot-runner temperature controller with up to six zones is available in the U.S. from Gammaflux L.P., Sterling, Va. The GLC2k unit, which Gammaflux has sold in Asia for three years, is priced up to 20% less than the firm's expandable GLC controller, which has 36 zones and more standard features.

The GLC2k incorporates the Gammaflux [PID.sup.2] control algorithm, as well as current measurement. The unit comes with a 12-ft power cable, 15A outputs, standard cables with connectors, and a 30A/240V circuit breaker. Tel: (703) 471-5050,
