Plasticising Assistant for Higher Melt Quality

Automatically Optimised Screw Speed with iQ melt control

The plasticising assistant automatically optimises the screw speed. iQ melt control is part of the standard equipment on every ENGEL injection moulding machine delivered since 2020. Achieve increased productivity and optimised processes in your production.

Your Advantages with the Plasticising Assistant
Better part quality and less scrap without additional costs

The iQ melt control plasticising assistant is a free solution on every ENGEL injection moulding machine delivered since 2020. By automatically optimising the screw speed, the plasticising assistant exploits time reserves, especially cooling time. The software enables optimum adjustment of the dosing parameters. You achieve improved material homogeneity, increased quality for the parts produced and get to series production faster.

Free up employees through automatic adjustments

Optimal settings during plasticising ensure smooth operation of the plasticising unit. Thanks to the optimised plastification time, you can minimise the deflection of the screw and thus the abrasion on the screw flight. By using the iQ melt control assistant, you ensure a significantly longer service life for the plasticising components.
