The IQ weight control software from Engel, Schwertberg, Austria, now also makes it possible to automatically recognise deviations and compensate for them in the same shot in hydraulic injection moulding machines. In this way rejects are prevented actively and productivity is increased decisively. To achieve this, the software analyses the pressure profile in real time during the injection process and compares the measured values with a reference cycle. The injection profile, switchover point and the post injection pressure are adjusted to the current conditions for every shot, which keeps the injected volume constant during the entire production run. The company uses the prefix IQ to denote intelligent, decentralised assistance systems that enable injection moulding companies to optimise their productivity, efficiency, quality and flexibility.
