Winterthur, October 2019 – The Smart Factory promises more process efficiency, better product quality and increased cost efficiency: benefits that are sure to inspire everyone. But the path to the Smart Factory is full of challenges. The essential requirement: consistent digitalization of industrial manufacturing. In injection molding production, intelligent assistance systems from Kistler simplify this complex undertaking. They help to optimize process steps and generate added value. Thanks to ComoNeo, the tailor-made system from Kistler for process monitoring and control, injection molders can successfully meet ever-increasing quality requirements.
Industry 4.0 is based on two objectives: production must constantly become leaner, and added value must increase continuously. It sounds simple and – thanks to smart displays and user interfaces – it also looks simple. But in fact, in-depth expertise is essential in order to connect large numbers of complex systems to create a networked factory. To meet this challenge, Kistler offers the ComoNeo assistance systems: a comprehensive package of intelligent solutions that make it far simpler for injection molders to achieve end-to-end digitalized production. High-precision sorting of good and bad parts (including scrap reduction), setting up a robust injection molding process or reproducing an established process on a new machine, with no previous knowledge of the subject: in all these situations and more, the systems provide indispensable assistance with controlling the entire manufacturing process, and they combine maximum functionality with simple system integration and operation. They focus precisely on the points where the greatest potentials for optimization are lying hidden.
