One of the biggest initial barriers to easy utility for the use of any fixed displacement pump is that they are very unforgiving when their flow is restricted. Picture yourself setting up a temperature control unit on a molding system based on a 300 or 400 ton press. The mold is large and fills the platens. The product allows a robust large cooling line design. This cooling line arrangement is relatively unrestricted.

If you have a variable speed motor running a positive displacement pump,  the flow rate can reach some level and the pressure developed at this speed will max out at some level based on the restriction of this particular mold setup.  Now we do what always happens in molding. This job finishes and the equipment is moved to another molding press.  But this one is a 100 ton machine with a much smaller mold with much more restricted passageways.  If you turn on the motor at the same speed used previously with such a restricted mold the pressure will build possibly to the point of over pressurizing the mold, breaking waterlines, and busting internal mold seals not intended for such high pressures.

LearnMold™ was developed to manage this problem. LearnMold™ is a computer enabled utility which is embedded in the PLC logic that senses the size of your mold cooling system and immediately computes the highest flow rate available for your mold at the maximum system pressure limit. It runs in the background and can sense when the iCOOL® has been moved to a new molding system.  Upon sensing the change it forces a recalibration at start-up the takes less than thirty seconds to complete.
