A Link to the future: How ENGEL and SIMCON enable a better way of working

Link to the future with ENGEL

Bi-directional communication between the simulation and the machine makes it easier for engineering and the shop floor to collaborate effectively.

Easier for engineering anD the shop floor

There are clear advantages to transferring data digitally from plastic injection molding simulation to the machine. By introducing bi-directional communication between the simulation and the machine, ENGEL and SIMCON make it easier for engineering and the shop floor to collaborate effectively.

InCORPORATE Machine setters' Wisdom at the virtual stage

Parameters can be optimized in advance, in parallel to the design of the part and mold geometry. By incorporating the wisdom of experienced machine setters already at the virtual stage of design, engineering can ensure that the combination of geometry and parameters has a higher likelihood of success.

advantages of digital transmission

The likelihood of costly physical mold corrections is reduced, accelerating time to market. By transferring pre-optimized settings digitally to the machine, the settings are mapped correctly and effortlessly to the machine controls. During tryouts, machine operators will give the settings some final real-world optimization to achieve optimal results.

Better future projects

By digitally relaying these changed settings back to the simulation software used in engineering, it gets easier for engineering to learn from any remaining errors and ensure that they are not repeated in future projects.

In the whitepaper, ENGEL and SIMCON describe this better way of working.
