Oven and Autoclave control systems by CompuDAS now offer the capability to apply either variable vacuum or variable pressure to the part bags.  This allows the pressure difference between the Autoclave and the part bag to be precisely controlled during a batch process. For Autoclave processing, the bags can now be pressurized to track the Autoclave pressure during a process.  For ovens, bag variable vacuum can be controlled by recipe.

The new feature is available for upgrade to all existing CompuDAS systems.

We specialize in retrofitting existing Ovens, Autoclaves, and Presses.

NASA needs variable bag pressure tracking…

And CompuDAS delivers

Oven and Autoclave control systems by CompuDAS now deliver the capability to apply either variable vacuum or variable pressure to the part bags.  This allows the pressure difference between the Autoclave and the part bag to be precisely controlled during the batch process.  For Autoclave processing, the bags can now be pressurized to track the Autoclave pressure during a process. Autoclave bag pressure seamlessly transitions from vacuum to pressure to maintain desired differential.  For ovens, bag variable vacuum can be controlled by the recipe.

This new feature is available for upgrade to all existing CompuDAS systems.

If you are planning a retrofit, consider our new variable vacuum and variable pressure as a way to extend the range of capability for your Autoclave or oven.  Retrofitting Autoclaves, Ovens and Presses is one of our specialties.

Precision Aerospace and Composites (PAC) an AIM Group Company, has selected CompuDAS to supply and install eight (8) CPC-16EX Control and Data Acquisition Systems on their composite curing equipment. The CPC-16EX control systems will control five of their composite curing ovens and all three of their autoclave systems. By utilizing the same software for all of their curing vessels, PAC will greatly streamline their operational costs. Recipe generation and Quality Assurance reporting will be consistent across the entire manufacturing facility. PAC operators will be able to move from one vessel to another with minimal training.

The COMPUDAS CPC-16EX is a complete, flexible, stand alone Control and Data Acquisition System designed to monitor, document and control processes for Ovens, Autoclaves, Furnaces and Presses. Process measurements are stored on the CPC-16EX control systems solid state hard drive for transmission to the operator PC as desired. This allows the control system to operate even if the operator PC should happen to fail during a run.

The CPC-16EX Control and Data Acquisition System generates files that are Windows compatible. The user interface software is a Windows based application providing recipe creation, recipe recall, process monitoring, data file archiving, report generation and operator high-level control. A secure PC connection allows for monitoring of processes remotely. This feature minimizes downtime and costs when technical support is needed by allowing CompuDAS to provide remote support.

CompuDAS announces the newest entry to their Critical Process Monitoring product line, the CPM-8. The new CPM-8 Critical Process Monitor system has up to 8 independent analog input channels and provides high-speed, low cost communication utilizing Windows Based Software and Ethernet connectivity.

The CPM-8 Critical Process Monitor features a LCD display for easy configuration and process monitoring with up to eight independently configurable analog input channels. The channel inputs may be any combination of thermocouples, RTD’s, pressure transducers or almost any voltage or current based sensors.

The CPM-8 Critical Process Monitor system utilizes a Windows interface and Ethernet compatible CPMon software. The CPM-8 also comes equipped with a digital display that permits the user to see individual channel data. Data is retrieved and maintained in Windows Excel compatible csv files, eliminating the cost of additional software and training for viewing data. Process monitoring, data file archiving, report generation and operator high-level control are accomplished through a CPMon Windows application. Secure PC connection allows for monitoring of processes remotely. This feature minimizes downtime and costs when technical support is needed by allowing CompuDAS to provide remote support.
