When is a plastic injection molding tool ripe for maintenance? Optimizer4D enables maintenance at the right time instead of relying on maintenance in fixed cycles: Condition-based rather than interval-based maintenance.
The QASS system provides an image of the spray process via high-frequency impulse measurement (HFIM). This image varies depending on the degree of wear of the mold. A worn mold produces a significantly different image than a new mold.
This inspection takes place in real time, non-destructively and 100 percent. At the same time, the system performs process monitoring and in many cases detects sluggish bolts and worn ejectors.
Optimizer4D from QASS also enables downstream component inspection. Moving plastic parts for loudspeakers, ashtrays, navigation devices or comparable components can serve as an example. The measuring system can sort out faulty components by detecting abnormal noise emissions.
