GreCon EASYLOG+

Data logger for the wireless temperature measurement when pressing thin plates

Optimise your pressing process by determining the development of the mat and panel temperature within your press and in the downstream cooling and conditioning processes. The EASYLOG is a wireless sensor with which the temperature is recorded continuously at every requested position in the intermediate layer of the mat. With the EASYLOG + it is also possible to record the gas pressure during the pressing process.
The temperature measurement provides information on the glue hardening in the mat and makes it possible for you to improve the press programme for your individual recipes. Reach a temperature of the intermediate layer of 100 °C as early as possible! Learn more about the cooling behaviour in the downstream processes as cooling, conditioning, grinding and coating to shorten the dwell times of your products. The measuring cycle of the data logger can be programmed. Long-term measurements with a duration of more than 24 hours are possible with EASYLOG+.
With the measurement of the pressure with the EASYLOG+ you can also determine the gas pressure during the pressing process. Knowing the gas pressure in your press can help you to optimize your process to an optimal temperature-/gas pressure ratio, avoiding the creation of blows. Thus you can increase the efficiency of your pressing process.

Benefits at a glance

  • Optimise the pressing programme with respect to the glue hardening
  • Carry out recipe adaptations in record time
  • Reduce commissioning times
