Smart Process Monitoring for Injection Molding

Avoid Machine Downtime and Scrap with iQ process observer

With the intelligent software solution iQ process observer, hundreds of process parameters can be monitored continuously and effortlessly across all four phases of the injection molding process: plasticizing, injection, cooling and demolding. The results of the process data analysis are displayed on the injection molding machine’s CC300 control unit for each of the four phases.

Recognizing process changes in time
Identify Causes and Reduce Machine Downtime and Scrap

iQ process observer enables fast identification of fluctuations by intelligently analyzing and processing hundreds of parameters. As a result, downtime can be effectively reduced. This smart software solution also has intelligent drift detection to proactively indicate process changes. Reject rates can be greatly reduced.

Simple and fast handling
Process Monitoring Displayed on the Machine Controller

The uniform and clear display of information and the intuitive guidance to the cause of process changes on the CC300 machine control saves valuable time when interpreting big data. In addition, configuration is reduced, which allows for quick activation of all monitoring functions.

Smart process data analysis
Intelligent Interpretation of the Process Status

By continuously comparing the determined values with the previous cycles, the software automatically detects significant changes in the process and points them out to the operator. In addition, the process data analysis compares all target and actual values with a defined reference status to detect long-term changes. Finally, the system shows possible process improvements or unfavorable process settings and conditions. Often, the possible causes are determined automatically, as are possible solutions.

Monitoring processes is often very complex and varies greatly depending on the level of knowledge and experience of digital solutions. Selecting relevant parameters and finding and setting the right limits can be very difficult and time-consuming. With iQ process observer it has never been easier to monitor the entire injection molding process.
