The fifth generation of BAUER controllers makes operation exceptionally user-friendly and intuitive.

Thanks to optimised software, operation and technical possibilities have been decisively enhanced, with new features including process data back-up, remote diagnostics or customisation of the control mode to meet the requirements of the corresponding component.

The proportional valve can be installed separately from the control panel, e.g. directly on the die, in order to reduce the length of the hose and thus the amount of nitrogen consumed.
