Hot runner


A state of the art Hot Runner temperature controller.

Visions 3000 Control System is a forward thinking temperature controller at a reasonable price for Hot Runners. It is designed for simplified use, reliable, durable, multilingual and to insure a precise temperature control.

All the functions of the Vision 3000 control have the flexibility to operate efficiently and economically, either in small or large production environments which have centralized manufacturing processes of high cavitation.

These days molders need the best technical solutions to reach accurate temperatures. Our ATC (Adaptive Thermal Control) is a tool that supplies auto-regulating algorithm�s, which adapt to various molding installations.

Our controller system Vision 3000 includes also a Power Temperature Comparator which indicates a comparative graph that has a priceless value for an optimal mold operation.

Control panel hot runner


Volton offers our expertise to supply a control panel that best adapts your needs.

We also carry in stock a various range of prefabricated panels at competitive prices. All our panels are supplied with a main disconnect that is lockable, which gives you the flexibility to install your panel seperately from your main disconnect switch.
