Image shows iQ motion control software for injection moulding machines from ENGEL

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

iQ motion control increases productivity in high-performance injection moulding

Mould movement accounts for a large proportion of production time. Especially in high-speed applications in the high-performance range. iQ motion control automatically optimises the ramps of the mould movement to the set application. The dry cycle time of the injection moulding machine is reduced. The result: shorter cycle times. iQ motion control is available for e-speed, e-cap (all clamp sizes) and e-motion (selected models). The software is not only available for injection moulding machines, but also for robots.

Advantages of the optimised mould movement
Shorter cycle time for more output

A cycle time that is one tenth of a second shorter already increases output by 3%. The iQ motion control software makes this possible: it ensures more productivity in high-performance injection moulding.

Full assistance in production with only one setting

There is no additional work for the operator when using the software. The calculation of the mould movement takes place automatically in the background. It is effective from the first cycle. The operator retains full control.

No increased load due to maximum values

iQ motion control accesses the existing potential of the mechanics and drives in the application. No change to the hardware or the connected load is required.

Would you like to shorten the dry cycle time of your injection moulding machine?

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

Practical example: Reducing the dry cycle time of injection moulding machines

At K 2022, 125 ml round containers were produced on an ENGEL e-speed injection moulding machine. The basic conditions: 4-cavity mould, rPET process for thin-wall injection moulding, inmould labelling technology. These containers are used for food packaging.

iQ motion control achieves the following savings:
Time saving in dry cycle time: 12%
Time saving in total cycle time: 5%
