Set up in 1971 in Oyonnax in Eastern France known as “Plastics Valley”, SISE (Société Industrielle de Service Electrique) designs, manufactures and distributes a comprehensive range of temperature and production monitoring equipment dedicated to the composites and plastics moulding industries.

With 90 employees and subsidiaries in the USA (Atlanta) and Germany (Stuttgart), and a large network of reps and distributors SISE gives its trade customers access to the latest and best solutions and has been widely acknowledged for his international expertise and know-how by demanding industrial customers, for whom the high quality and comprehensive solutions offered by SISE products are invaluable.  

The PLASTICS LIVE show in Coventry will be the opportunity for SISE to introduce on the UK market the new touch-screen temperature controllers.

These units offer a wide heating capacity range, from 6kW to 45kW, a wide choice of quality pumps from 60L/min up to 400L/min, heat plate exchangers from 60 kW to 180kW and solid state relay as standard. On some TCU models, 2 heating rates can be used to control the rise in temperature, but also can save energy for during everyday use. Maintenance is equally important for SISE, so its components are accessible and easy to replace. Essential and useful options are of course available (Multi-protocol communication, tool draining, external probe, alarm report, Vortex flowmeter, pseudo-cascade control, external setpoint, track measurements, direct cooling, etc.).

SISE will also present its new range of GC units dedicated to sequential valve gate control, where 3 new units will be presented. First, the entry-level GC’Timer, will be able to control up to 16 pneumatic or hydraulic valve gates, then the GC’Access, up to 18, and finally the GC’TECH, up to 32 gates. Two are equipped with new colour touch screens, and they all include new functions such as end of stroke management, multi-material management, VNC link, curve displays and especially the new programming mode… In addition, they offer traceability of parts produced with part counting, scrap detection and real-time data recording. 

Regarding hot runner temperature control, SISE will also present its MV3 generation which is capable of controlling up to 336 zones. The MV3 range is available within 6 sizes (XXS, XS, S, M, M, L and XL) with 4 available power cards (2.5 A, 15A, 15A, 20A and 30A) to adapt the offer to various industries such as packaging, automotive, cosmetics, medical and electrical engineering. Available with 7’’, 10” and 12” integrated touch panels and a Linux-based software program developed by SISE. Pivoting and detachable side panels facilitate access to power and thermocouple cards greatly. This new generation will include useful and advanced functions such as 4 soft start modes, zone grouping, PTI function for thermocouple anomalies, Moldscan for hot runner system real-time diagnosis, as well as real-time material leak detection. The system is of course multilingual (up to 12 languages available) with unlimited backup of mold programs.

Lastly, recording and monitoring temperatures in production, and communicating via multiple protocols is fully in line with the 4.0 strategy, i.e. supporting the installation of so-called ”smart factories”.
