Integrated system diagnostics

Integrated system diagnostics allow our machine users to monitor key machine components. This prevents damage to the machine or customer’s product in the case of a system failure. Integrated system diagnostics look for:

  • Motor / Drive failure
  • Thermocouple failure
  • Heating element failure
  • Pressure control failure
