Beaumont awarded patent for Therma-flo technology

Aug. 24, 2015

Beaumont Technologies Inc., Erie, Pa., has received a patent for its Therma-flo technology that measures how polymer flows through a mold under a wide range of situations. Therma-flo is part of a fully integrated test cell that includes Therma-flo moldometer tooling, an injection molding machine and software written to manage the data.

"This new technology will help advance the injection molding industry by providing information that has never been available," said John Beaumont, president of Beaumont Technologies. "Part of what has made this technology so exciting is the breadth of information it puts at one's finger tips."

The company says this is the first technology with a method and systems patent for characterizing the injection moldability of plastic materials.
