Smart Monitoring for Injection Moulding Process Steps

Avoid Machine Downtimes and Rejects 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 moulding process: plasticising, injection, cooling and demoulding.

The results of the process data analysis are displayed on the injection moulding machine’s CC300 control unit during each of the four phases.

Recognising process changes in time
Identify Causes and Reduce Machine Downtimes and Rejects

iQ process observer enables rapid diagnosis of quality fluctuations by intelligently analysing and processing hundreds of parameters. As a result, downtimes can be effectively reduced. In addition, this smart software solution has intelligent drift detection, which can be used to proactively indicate process changes.

Rejection rates can thus be brought under control.

Simple and fast handling
Process Step Monitoring Clearly Displayed on the Machine

The uniform and clear display of information and the intuitive guidance to the cause of process changes within the CC300 machine control saves valuable time when interpreting big data. In addition, users spend next to no time on configuration, 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 state in order to detect long-term changes, for example.

Finally, the system indicates possible process improvements or unfavourable process settings and states in the form of plain text messages. In many cases, the possible causes are determined automatically, as are possible solutions.

Your path to self-optimising injection moulding production
The Modular Structure of our Digital Solutions

The challenges of the future are becoming increasingly complex and digitalisation is playing an ever greater role in production. We accompany you on your way to networked and self-optimising injection moulding production. With the modular ENGEL inject 4.0 programme, we aim to make it particularly easy to exploit the advances in digitalisation and the new opportunities it opens up.

Monitoring processes is often very complex and varies greatly depending on the level of knowledge and experience of digital solutions. The selection of relevant parameters alone, and finding and setting the right limits, can prove highly complex and time-consuming. But with the iQ process observer it has never been easier to monitor the entire injection moulding process.
