PMA | Temperature Control

PMA was established in 1929. Originally part of Withof and later Philips Industrial Electronic Corporation, PMA joined the Danaher Corporation in 2005. More recently the PMA product brand has joined together with the CALPartlow and West product brands to form West Control Solutions.

PMA specializes in digitally operated, closed loop control for industrial application. PMA utilizes advanced tuning algorithms and programmable logic to produce system solutions for complex processes.  Experts in the use of

PLCs in conjunction with distributed I/O systems and customized HMIs, PMA solutions are at the forefront of technological and engineering innovation and it is recognised as a market leader in process controls for the plastic extrusion industry.

The product portfolio features:

  • Single loop temperature controllers
  • Multi loop controllers 
  • Limit Controllers
  • Digital Indicators
  • Transmitters
