Monitoring of medical device plastic injection molding – breakthrough for consistently high quality

Die Prozessüberwachung beim Spritzgießen von medizintechnischen Produkten ist unverzichtbar für hohe Qualität.

Cavity pressure sensors

Cavity pressure provides a direct criterion to determine part quality in the production of plastic components. In addition to machine data, cavity pressure plays a key part in transparent process monitoring. To achieve this objective, Kistler offers:

  • An extensive portfolio of high-precision pressure sensors to equip avaried range of molds
  • Combined with ComoNeo, monitoring of up to 32 pressure signals and 16 temperature signals in real time

Reduce crap during plastic injection molding with ComoNeo process monitoring system

ComoNeo records all conditions in the mold during the injection molding process. Special functions enable the analysis, optimization, monitoring and documentation of the injection molding process and are suitable and reliable tools for the various phases of qualification and validation up to production. The integrated user management and automatic recording of user activities offer the greatest possible process security and transparency.

Application-specific features ComoNeo

  • ComoNeoPREDICT: Online prediction functionality based on DoEs
  • ComoNeoMERGE: Process monitoring functionality for multi-component injection molding
  • ComoNeoLDAP: Automatic management of policies and users (User Management)
  • ComoNeoLOG: Computer generated and time stamped electronic record of all ser activities (Audit Trail)
  • ComoNeoCONNECT: Extended Data Transfer via OPC-UA (standard OCP-UA w/o licence)

With ComoNeoPREDICT, which is the online quality prediction system involving artificial intelligence (AI), users obtain reliable data about each manufactured component in advance, based on the current cavity pressure profile. With this information, they can improve machine settings to maximize quality, production time and process stability.

ComoNeoMERGE is the solution for precise and transparent control of complex multi-component injection molding processes. The system provides a visual overview of the individual production steps processed for each plastic component. This enables a clear evaluation of the entire process and thus helps to reduce quality costs.

ComoNeo LDAP and LOG are especially adapted for medical requirements providing connection to the corporate user management, whereas LOG is recording a full audit trail.

Data export via CSV is standard as well as the OPC-UA export of all process values and evaluation results. For extended OPC_UA export of the full curve data, the CONNECT license is necessary.
