Process monitoring for 2K and RTM processes
Especially in the automotive sector, many plastic parts are actually combinations of two or more components. This means that mold and processing technology needs to be optimized and monitored. The challenge: to assess the characteristic cavity pressure curves, two or more processes have to be captured and evaluated separately, depending on the component being produced. With ComoNeo 2.1, users can examine up to four components with different mold technologies.
The RTM process for industrial processing of long-fiber composites is increasingly deployed in lightweight construction design, especially in the automobile manufacturing and aviation technology sectors. To meet this challenge, Kistler offers special RTM sensors. Coupled with the expanded functionalities of ComoNeo 2.1, they provide the basis for quality assurance and process optimization.
All set for Industry 4.0 with ComoDataCenter
ComoNeo's intelligent functions meet the requirements for digitization of the injection molding process. The parameters acquired by ComoNeo deliver transparent, reproducible results and integral process analysis. All the collected data is stored centrally in ComoDataCenter where it is available for further analyses. ComoDataCenter also allows networking of process data with higher-level systems such as a Manufacturing Execution System (MES).
