- Restart assistant: easy transfer of established processes from one machine to another
ComoNeo has been designed specifically for the requirements of injection molding processes and the needs of operators working in the production environment. Its innovative user interface combined with the capacitive multi-touch display allows the user to control the unit with maximum efficiency and perfect ease of use. Since the hardware of the unit has also been designed with functionality in mind, the connections have been separated into a mold side (connections to the injection mold) and a machine side (connections to the injection molding machine or handling device). On the mold side, one ComoNeo unit can accommodate up to 32 cavity pressure sensors and up to 16 contact temperature sensors (connected via thermocouple amplifier Type 2205A). On the machine side, the unit offers 12 digital inputs and 24 digital outputs. The ComoNeo also makes it possible to record and analyze 4 analog machine signals (screw position, machine pressure, etc.). USB and Ethernet interfaces allow for a smooth exchange of data. Since the user interface is entirely based on web technology, the visualization and the configuration of the ComoNeo are available on any notebook, PC, tablet and smartphone sharing the network. Up to 128 monitoring functions enable ComoNeo to ensure reliable scrap separation on the basis of recorded data. The selection and placement of the monitoring functions can be carried out either manually by the user or automatically by the EO Assistant built into the system. Equipped with four different operating modes, the ComoNeo can be adapted perfectly to the injection molding process. Setup and production mode are used, respectively, to optimize the settings and to activate the sorting of the parts. The unit also offers a production mode which will be activated if, for instance, a production break was detected and the injection molding machine is at a standstill. The ComoNeo is set to standby mode when no measurements are being taken. Aside from tools designed for process monitoring, the ComoNeo offers a host of process analysis and process optimization options. These options draw from an integrated cycle history that stores as a minimum 50000 cycles. If required for more extensive analyses or for documentation purposes, the ComoNeo can be integrated into the corporate network via its Ethernet interface, making it possible for all measured data and evaluations to be transferred completely to the ComoDataCenter.
