The Restart module has been integrated into the system since ComoNeo Version 2.0. The purpose of this module is to reproduce the quality of an established injection molding process identically on another machine. The Restart Assistant is therefore used as a tool to optimize injection molding processes, rather than as a monitoring instrument.
Know-How Integrated in the Restart Assistant
With this module, processes can be quickly and systematically optimized after a machine change, and the procedure is user-guided. As the basis for the procedure, the Restart Assistant needs a reference curve representing a process of good quality.
Once the reference cycle is stored and the Restart Assistant is started, measurement and analysis of the current process can begin. Deviations from the reference cycle are analyzed in detail. Based on the degree and position of the deviation, the Restart Assistant automatically suggests changes to the machine parameters.
After checking the results, new changes are suggested on the basis of the deviations and the Assistant's accumulated experience of previous changes. Process optimization is completed when the cavity pressure profile deviations are reduced to a tolerable level.
