Services for injection molding
Comprehensive services for plastic injection molding: expert support at every stage of the lifecycle
Maintaining high product quality under increasing price pressure is a challenge many injection molders and mold makers face nowadays. At the same time, requirements on traceability of the molded parts become higher. To ensure an efficient process along the development and production of a new plastic part, we offer a broad service portfolio to accompany our customers in different phases. We help you to reduce process risks, to lower costs for commissioning and to achieve long-term stable product quality. Benefit from our in-depth application knowledge and explore the Kistler Original Service offerings for each lifecycle phase!
Mold design has an important influence on plastics processing and on product quality. To reduce risks in the design phase, Kistler offers a simulation service to simulate the planned injection molding process. As a result, we can consult you on the best sensor placement within the mold and deliver a recommendation on the process parameters. In addition, the service Mold Validation 1 serves to inspect the mounting bores of the molds and to correctly commission all sensors. The provided report documents correct mold installation and operational readiness of the measurement equipment. This streamlines the setup and facilitates the collaboration between mold maker and injection molder.

Operation & Improvement
Kistler built up its injection molding know-how over several decades and employs process specialists all over the world. Through our ISO21001 certified Kistler Academy we impart this knowledge: for example with courses on composites production, sensor basics or process optimization with ComoNeo. – Commissioning of measurement technology is optimally complemented by the Mold Validation 2 service to check the plausibility and optimal setup of process parameters including the recording of a reference curve and a validation certificate.
