Global thermal processing equipment provider Despatch Industries has released its PC-based process control systemthe Focal Point. This advanced system is the company's latest contribution for the composite curing market, specifically in process control, data acquisition and reporting. Focal Point has full control of the curing process and records all information. This capability provides traceability as well as validation of quality of Despatch's composite curing ovens.

"We are pleased to offer our customers in the composite curing market this advanced control system," stated Brad Rohlf, product manager. "Our customers appreciate the Focal Point system's ability to both control and validate process profiles to pre-programmed recipes. This is a critical feature that ensures part quality and process traceability."

Focal Point offers precise process control with lead-lag temperature control and an advanced recipe editor for programming temperature and vacuum profiles. During the curing cycle, run status and all process values can be monitored from the display panel. Focal Point utilizes remote I/O architecture to create a platform that can easily be customized for a wide range of applications. Remote modules, such as thermocouples and vacuum or compressed air subsystems, can be added to the platform and communicate with the oven PLC through an Ethernet connection.
