Digitalization in the Injection molding manufacturing process

ENGEL's digital solutions consistently ensure good parts quality and allow significant cost and energy reduction in your Injection molding manufacturing process.

With easy-to-use software tools such as digital machine data acquisition, you have a continuous overview of your production, make full use of the potential and support your employees.

Advantages of digital solutions in Injection molding manufacturing process
Know what's going on in your Injection molding manufacturing process

By connecting your injection molding machines, you can exchange information directly with software systems. Process data is digitally recorded and collected in real-time. As a result, you can permanently improve your manufacturing performance through continuous monitoring of production and processes.

Digital products promote a sustainable production

Resource-saving manufacturing is an essential part of a Circular Economy, which we are committed to at ENGEL. Digital solutions support and accelerate sustainable development in many areas of manufacturing, from recyclate processing to reducing your energy consumption and minimizing the carbon footprint.

A stable production process saves costs

Using digital solutions in injection molding manufacturing processes, you can detect and compensate for deviations and therefore minimize scrap. ENGEL’s iQ weight control and iQ process observer are the right digital products to reach these goals. A stable production reduces your machine downtime. You can make full use of the potential of your injection molding machine, which saves you time and money.

Easy planning through machine data acquisition

A central, digital data acquisition enables you to plan capacities better and increases the efficiency of your machinery. With the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) authentig, you can replace your manual data collection with digital reports. The flood of information is streamlined and lead times are shortened.

Intuitive operation supports your employees

The uncomplicated utilization in day-to-day work, an intuitive interface and simple control make it easier to handle the digital products - even for employees without IT experience. Machine operation is simplified and workflows in your Injection molding manufacturing process are more efficient.

Cross-site compliance with process settings

Setpoint changes become traceable. Even from a distance, you can ensure that the machine settings across the entire machine park are not changed or only changed within the defined scope. This means that your Injection molding manufacturing process has the same standards globally.

Documented quality and traceability

Complete documentation of injection molding processes is a standard customer requirement in many industries. Defined values of your Injection molding manufacturing process are recorded. Thanks to central management, all test results are available and can be presented for audits.
