Watlow, an industry pioneer in the design and manufacture of complete thermal systems, has recently launched a batch processing feature for its powerful F4T temperature and process controller and D4T data logger.
Batch processing for capturing manufacturing part thermal data
The batch processing functionality is perfect for OEMs and end-users with thermal processes that aim to capture manufacturing part processing thermal data. The Watlow F4T temperature and process controller or D4T data logger with batch processing simplifies and automates data record entry and reports.
Users can enter non-thermal “batch” or job-related processing type data using a wireless (USB) scanner connected to the USB port in an F4T process controller or D4T data logger. The Watlow process controller and data logger can also collect and data log all desired thermal process data into a data log record. The F4T or D4T then combines the non-thermal “batch” or job information from the bar code entries along with the thermal data log record to generate an exportable batch report.
Optimise productivity flow
Unlike using time-consuming and costly manual measures to achieve data processing or bypassing the data entry and collection all together, the data logger or temperature controller with batch processing optimises productivity flow, increases manufacturing quality assurances, reduces risks and expenses associated with quality escapes, performs fail-safe thermal processing and produces a hassle-free, formatted report. This quick, easy and low-cost method helps enable regulatory compliance because the report can be stored as a secured, tamperproof paperless record and is easily archived for future reference needs.
Product manager Craig Dennis said:
“The new batch processing feature offers many benefits including increased productivity, improved manufacturing processes and product quality and increased compliance.”
“This cost-effective, automated measurement equipment can help reduce errors, which improves the process from beginning to end.”
Batch processing is recommended for many industries including, environmental chambers (scientific and industrial), medical, clinical, analytical and more.
Watlow is a global technology and manufacturing leader that provides world class engineering expertise and innovative thermal products and systems that enable customers to thrive.
