Plasticizing Assistant for Better Melt Quality

Automatically Optimized Screw Speed with iQ melt control

The plasticizing assistant automatically optimizes the screw speed. iQ melt control is part of the standard equipment on every ENGEL injection molding machine delivered since 2020. This way, we can ensure higher productivity and optimized processes in your production.

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

The iQ melt control plasticizing assistant is a free solution. It is installed on all ENGEL injection molding machines that were delivered since 2020. By automatically optimizing the screw speed, the plasticizing assistant utilizes time reserves, especially cooling time. The software allows an optimum setting of metering parameters. You will get improved material homogeneity, increased part quality and you can start series production faster.

Less work for employees through automatic adjustments

Optimal plasticizing settings guarantee a careful operation of the plasticizing unit. Thanks to the improved plasticizing time, the deflection of the screw and therefore the wear of the screw flight can be minimized. By using the iQ melt control plasticizing assistant, you ensure a significantly longer service life of the plasticizing components.
