Paperless parameter transfer from simulation to the injection molding machine is crucial, if injection molders want better results.
COLLABORATION between engineering and injection molding machine operators IS ESSENTIAL
Simulation can be used to find good initial settings for mold tryouts, and to understand which parameters should be prioritized for refinement during tryouts. By involving machine operators early, engineering can ensure that the most important insights are shared and heard on the shop floor.
Tear down the wall BETWEEN ENGINEERING AND THE SHOP FLOOR
Yet in many companies, a virtual wall separates engineering from the shop floor. They are run as separate silos, hampering proper information exchange and sharing of insights. Injection molding machine manufacturer ARBURG and simulation specialist SIMCON lay out a better way of working.
Connecting simulation TO INJECTION MOLDING machine controls
By interconnecting and integrating simulation software with machine controls, injection molders can begin to tear down the wall between engineering and the shop floor. The result is improved quality, a significant reduction in mold corrections, more efficient sampling, and a time-to-market acceleration that is often on the order of weeks.
In this whitepaper, we provide a blueprint for this modern, collaborative, efficient way of working.
