Heat up temperature zones gently and evenly with mapp Temperature

B&R’s mapp Temperature software package provides a new pre-programmed way to get manufacturing systems up to temperature. At the push of a button, the Soft-Start function heats up machine components gently to minimize heating element fatigue – without any of the tedious programming that used to be involved. Homogeneous heating reduces mechanical stresses and allows for controlled evaporation of liquid residues in the machine.

With mapp Temperature‘s Soft-Start function, equipment such as filtration systems, extruders and injection molding machines can be brought to operating temperature quickly and easily. This is done either by targeted heating with limited power or by using a defined temperature gradient to heat up all zones synchronously. Since the Soft-Start function avoids operating the heating elements at maximum power, it is particularly gentle on the machine’s hardware.

No programming required

All the necessary settings, such as the target temperature, are easy to configure in mapp Temperature. Individual heating zones can be adjusted individually, or even excluded from the Soft-Start process if necessary. This makes temperature control much more flexible and offers more options for different heating zones. The heating process is started at the push of a button without any of the tedious programming that used to be involved.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
