Plastic Process Monitoring

Zero-defect production based on cavity pressure measurement during plastics processing

Zero-defect production with 100% quality is the supreme goal of every plastics processing operation – in sectors ranging from automotive supply and medical technology to electronics. Reliable process control is the key to achieving this goal. The solution? Piezoelectric sensors and systems from Kistler. They measure and analyze the cavity pressure during the injection molding process, while monitoring the process and separating rejects. Based on cavity pressure measurement, these systems control the injection molding process and balance the hot runner system in line with the mold cavity pressure – no matter which machines, molds and peripherals are in use. And as you would expect, all relevant quality data is fully documented. To boost efficiency in plastics processing.
