ControlSoft Inc.'s TCM controls barrel temperature in extrusion applications.

TCM is designed to control barrel temperature in extrusion applications. By coordinating temperature zones through an extruder and maintaining temperature with minimum controller oscillation, the module can maintain temperatures within I1°F. From ControlSoft Inc., the device uses model-predictive control techniques that account for the effects from adjacent zones as well as zone location.
