The platen, heater hood and clamp frame are pneumatically
operated, with light curtain guarding ensuring operator
safety. The machine is controlled via a panel mounted color
touchscreen, and can be run in full load-to-unload automatic
mode. For setting up and small batches, panel switches allow
the machine to be used manually.
The control system of the CR242 incorporates a sheet leveling
system to improve heating consistency, and cooling fans to
speed part cooling. The control also has selectable heating
time control strategies, which can improve part consistency
through a production batch.
