Image shows iQ motion control software for injection molding machines by ENGEL

Up to 12% shorter dry cycle time of the injection molding machine

iQ motion control increases productivity of high-performance injection molding

Mold movement accounts for a large part of the production time, especially for high-speed applications in the high-performance range. iQ motion control automatically optimizes the ramps of the mold movement, which reduces the dry cycle time of the injection molding machine. The result: shorter cycle times. iQ motion control is available for e-speed, e-cap (all clamp sizes) and e-motion machines (selected models). The software is not only available for injection molding machines, but also for robots.

Advantages of optimized mold movement
Shorter cycle time for more output

Cycle time reduced by a tenth of a second increases the output by 3%. The iQ motion control software makes this possible: It ensures greater productivity of high-performance injection molding.

Automatic assistance in production with only one setting

There is no additional work for the operator when using iQ motion control. With automatic calculation of the mold movement in the background, the software ensures effective operation from the very first cycle. The operator keeps full control.

No increased load due to maximum values

iQ motion control leverages the existing potential of the mechanics and drives in the given application. No changes to the hardware or the connected load are required.

Do you want to shorten the dry cycle time of your injection molding machine?

Our experts will be happy to advise you on iQ motion control.

Best-practice example: Reducing the dry cycle time of injection molding machines

At K 2022, 125 ml round containers were produced on an ENGEL e-speed injection molding machine. The basic conditions: 4-cavity mold, rPET process for thin-wall injection molding, in-mold labeling technology. The containers are used for food packaging.

The following savings are achieved with iQ motion control:
Time savings in dry cycle time: 12%
Time savings in total cycle time: 5%
