APM's September 2022 Highlights
Wittmann's Leakstop Feature for Leaking Molds
Wittmann's Basic C200 is an economic TCU, and can run in reverse to eliminate leaking issues until you can pull the mold for repair. This also gives it the ability to purge your mold. More information can be found here.
Reiloy's Screw, Barrel and Valve Stocking Program
With supply chain struggles, it is more important now than ever to have spare components on the shelf. With the Reiloy Screw and Barrel Stocking Program, you can have Screws, Barrels and Valves manufactured and stored in Reiloy's climate controlled warehouse. When you need it, Reiloy will ship it to you and that is when you are invoiced. Contact us for more information!
Wittmann Robot's new Replay Function Using Video Assist
With the large screen on the new Wittmann R9 Controller, comes the ability to replay animated robot motions on the controller screen so that you can watch and review up to the last 100 seconds of the robot motions. This makes it much easier to detect causes of issues and supports the
operator’s efforts to prevent a repetition of similar incidents. More info on the R9 Video Assist can be found here.

APM's July 2022 Highlights
Modular Conveyors to Fit Any Application
With Dynamic Conveyors, you can change any conveyor to fit any of your production needs. Turn a flat conveyor into an incline, extend or shorten conveyors, and just about any other reconfiguration you want so that you can eliminate a graveyard of conveyors that no longer fit any applications. Check out the reconfiguration video here.
Reiloy Eagle Mixing Screws
Gammaflux Hot Runner Leak Detection
The Reiloy Eagle Mixing Screw is a low shear plastics mixing screw that provides processors with outstanding color/additive mixing. In addition, many processors using the Eagle have experienced improved production rates, both in recovery rate and throughput (pounds per hour). Contact us today if you have a difficult mixing application!
This photo shows an actual leak that was detected early by the Gammaflux Hot Runner Controller watt/leak alarm. As can be clearly seen, the material started leaking out the backside of the nozzle but did not make it to the wires. Once the wires are coated in plastic the mold must be shut down and removed from the machine and the heater, thermocouple or both will need to be replaced. Detecting leaks early not only saves money but also speeds the mold back into service.
APM's June 2022 Highlights
Gammaflux Price Reduction
As of June, Gammaflux reduced pricing 7% on all G24 and LEC Hot Runner Controllers. Reach out to us if you have any aging controllers or upcoming projects that we can assist with!
High Temp Water Units Instead of Oil
Wittmann High Temperature Water units (up to 360 F) are a great alternative to oil, as they are more efficient, have faster heat up/cool down times, are less expensive, are safer, and are easier to maintain. Check out the video to see how quickly the units shut down after an unexpected hose leak - Here
Reduce Cycle Time with a Servo Picker
Have you seen the video of how a customer reduced cycle time by 3 seconds by going from a pneumatic picker to a servo picker? This was a 20% reduction in cycle time! See the two videos showing the improvement - Here

APM's April 2022 Highlights
Reiloy Ceramic Chrome Screws
Ceramic chrome prevents resins and additives from sticking to the surface of the screw and degrading which greatly reduces screw cleaning frequency and machine down time. Ceramic Chrome seals pores found in chrome preventing corrosives from attacking the substrate. Contact us today for more information and an application assessment.
