January 10, 2019 – Watlow, a designer and manufacturer of thermal systems, introduced a batch processing feature for its F4T temperature and process controller and D4T data logger.
The batch processing feature is designed for OEMs and end users with thermal processes who seek to collect manufacturing part processing thermal data. The F4T or D4T with batch processing automates data record entry and reports.
Users can enter non-thermal “batch” or job-related processing type data using a wireless (USB) scanner connected to the USB port in an F4T or D4T. The F4T or D4T can also collect and data log all desired thermal process data into a data log record. The F4T or D4T then combines the non-thermal “batch” or job information from the bar code entries along with the thermal data log record to produce an exportable batch report.
The F4T or D4T with batch processing maximizes productivity flow, increases manufacturing quality assurances, performs thermal processing and issues a hassle-free, formatted report. This method helps enable regulatory compliance because the report can be stored as a secured, tamperproof paperless record and is archived for future reference needs.
Batch processing is recommended for many industries including ovens, furnaces, kilns, environmental chambers (scientific and industrial), medical, clinical, analytical, aerospace, metals processing and more.
