BONDTECH Corp. provides customized solutions for satisfying a
wide range of data processing requirements. Our engineering
controls software interface ranges from the basic PLC data
entry to customized windiws based PC systems with advanced
touch screen technology. BONDTECH's autoclaves will include a
PLC Programable Logic Controller with a modern hookup capability
upon request. Our technicians are capable to troubleshooting the
autoclave system over Internet. BONDTECH's autoclaves are fully
tested at our shop prior to shipment.
BONDTECH's computer system is customized for each application and are capable of controlling your autoclave processes from a single terminal. Our Windows PC program controls temperature, pessure and vacuum. Individual vacuum lines are minitored and automatically isolated when an alarm threshhold is reached. Programs are simply drawn and almost no typing is necessary to create a program. On/Off events are set by simply moving the mouse pointer above and below the zero line on the graph screen. T hroughout, the program you can turn On/Off the guarantee soak insuring correct cure. In order to insure proper temperature conditions, the system clock is paused.
The Bondtech EnVision System
The Heart of the EnVision control system is the multitasking Programmable Logic Controller (PLC).
The process engineer selects the process conditions and sequence to be followed
through a “Recipe”, input into the EnVision control system with the graphical
operator interface (OI) computer. The “Recipe” to be followed is selected by
the operator during the setup period at loading.
All operator related input and functions are through the graphical operator interface (OI) computer. The OI acts as a window into the EnVision system and provides local data collection for the generation of graphical reports and trends. The PLC functions independently from the OI and in doing so, it is capable of completing an “In Process” run to recipe specifications without the OI being functional, only local data collection would be lost.

The System Screen
The system screen shows the status of the instrumentation and controls for each area of the autoclave system under the EnVision systems control. The status for each of these items is displayed as a graphical color or digital value as an indication of the condition or position of the device monitored.
The Trend Screen
The Trend Screen displays the historical data for the last several hours of system operation.
The Setup TC & Recipe Screen
The Setup TC and Recipe screen allows the operator to select which of the Part Thermocouple jacks the current run will be utilizing. It is very rare that all of the TC jacks would be utilized for a given run. This screen allows the operator to select which they will be using and to see and verify the output of the Part TC prior to closing the door and starting the process.
The Setup TC & Recipe Screen
The Setup Vacuum screen allows the operator to select which of the Vacuum Ports the current run will be utilizing. It is very rare that all of the vacuum ports would be utilized for a given run. This screen allows the operator to select which they will be using and to see and verify the reading on the Part vacuum port transducers prior to closing the door and starting the process.
The Recipe Editor
The Recipe Editor Screen allows the process engineer to specify the step-by-st ep operation of the process performed in the autoclave.
A recipe can be selected by using the next recipe or previous recipe buttons in the top left corner of the recipe editor screen.
