Conair TCUs made for medical, electronics production

May 16, 2024
The MicroTemp Thermolator is small enough to fit under small IMMs, but offers the advantages of the company's larger units.

MicroTemp Thermolator Conair’s latest and smallest temperature control unit (TCU) retains the power, precision and configurability of full-sized Conair TCUs. The units can heat or cool water to between 40 degrees and 250 degrees Fahrenheit. 

What’s new? The TCUs, designed for the makers of medical and electronics parts, as well as other processors working with small injection molding machines, precision molds or tight production spaces, such as clean rooms. They are available with a basic MTC-B control with a 4-inch LCD display, or the more-advanced MTC-T with a 4-inch color touch-screen HMI with Conair’s easy-to-use common control interface. 

Benefits Compact size. At 14.7 inches tall, 15.6 inches wide and 18-inches deep, the TCUs tuck neatly under small injection molding machines. For medical and electronics molders, the premium MTC-T controller offer user-configurable, energy-saving process-control capabilities, including auto-relief warm-up and cooling, auto restart, low pressure auto-resume and key performance indicator (KPI) trends. Its help screens and links to SmartServices, Conair’s cloud-based Industry 4.0 platform, simplify training. Additionally, the TCUs’ automatic phase detection circuit and built-in pressure transducer eliminate the need for external pressure-monitoring gauges.
