Condition monitoring

Condition monitoring of your injection moulding machine with e-connect.monitor

Condition monitoring allows you to monitor the condition of your injection moulding machine during operation. The remaining service life of the components can be predicted thanks to regular wear measurement. This helps you avoiding unplanned downtimes. It means also giving you time for predictive maintenance and for ordering spare parts in advance.

Your advantages with the ENGEL condition monitoring solution
Replace wear parts - avoid failure

The condition monitoring system collects and analyses the data from your injection moulding machine. The results are available to you at any time in our online e-connect customer portal. If the wear of the machine components is checked at regular intervals by means of condition monitoring, you can evaluate the wear trend and reliably forecast the remaining service life of the components. This allows you to replace parts in good time before downtime happens.

Save costs with predictive maintenance

With condition monitoring, preventive maintenance is replaced by predictive maintenance - for the need-oriented instead of regular replacement of wear parts. This saves time and costs. You have control over planned shutdowns and can adapt maintenance timeslots more flexibly to your needs. Downtimes are thus noticeably reduced and the service life of critical machine components is fully utilised.

Easy ordering of spare parts in the customer portal

The prediction of the remaining service life of components, thanks to condition monitoring, supports you in ordering spare parts in a timely manner. Targeted spare parts ordering allows you to make optimal use of your warehouse capacities. When it comes to the maintenance or repair of machines, you can find the availability of spare parts, prices and delivery times, at a glance in the e-connect customer portal. This makes it easier to order the required components for maintenance in time. In addition, this enables you to have an overview of the complete service history of your equipment.

Condition monitoring without interrupting production

It is no longer necessary to stop your injection moulding machine to carry out wear measurement and inspection on process-critical components. Your production runs uninterrupted, the condition monitoring of the wear components happens automatically in the background.

Would you like to monitor the condition of your injection moulding machine?

I will be happy to advise you on your options in the field of condition monitoring and predictive, condition-based maintenance.

What our customers say about the condition monitoring solution

In the past, we had to take a lot of time to remove the screw. Now the measurement only takes 15 minutes and we don't have to shut down the machine.

Connectivity and data management for condition monitoring of your injection moulding machine

Due to the comprehensive linking and networking of technologies, the topic of data security is increasingly coming to the fore. With ENGEL, your data is in the best hands: Our system architecture meets the latest security standards - you have complete control and transparency over the data connections as well as the transmitted data. A hardened operating system is used to operate the EDGE Device. All systems used are subjected to regular security tests and access is restricted to employees authorised by you.

Which components can we monitor?

Predictive maintenance thanks to condition monitoring

With condition monitoring of hydraulic oil, plasticising screws or servo pumps, you increase the availability of your injection moulding machines.

Hydraulic oil

The condition of the hydraulic oil is crucial for wear, damage to components and process deviations. Thanks to condition monitoring, you can monitor the hydraulic oil by measuring the chemical condition, particles and relative water content. By optimally scheduling the hydraulic oil or filter change, you make an important contribution to cost efficiency and sustainable operation.

Plasticising screws

Previously, the condition of the screw could be checked by removing it from the machine, which resulted in downtimes of up to two working days. With the Condition Monitoring Service, we can assess the condition of the screw without removing the plasticising unit. The measurement is carried out by our service technicians using ultrasound technology, regardless of the control version and the age of the machine.

Servo pumps

The wear of a servo pump has a significant influence on the process stability and energy efficiency of your hydraulic injection moulding machine. Thanks to condition monitoring, you can easily monitor the current condition of all installed servo pumps and detect wear immediately. This allows you to proactively derive improvement measures and avoid unexpected downtimes.
