Engel launches wide-ranging updates at Fakuma with three control systems

Engel will focus on smart factory technology at Fakuma, with a demonstration of its Inject 4.0 system for digitalisation and networking.

Inject 4.0 is poised to lead to the smart factory where production processes continuously self-optimise through networking, the systematic use of machines, process and production data, and the use of intelligent assistance systems.

Engel will demonstrate how plastics processors can increase the productivity and quality of their production and respond flexibly to ever more rapidly changing requirements, by making with Inject 4.0 logos on an all-electric and tie-bar-less Engel e?motion 170/80 TL injection moulding machine.

The Inject 4.0 programme has three assistance systems: an iQ weight control maintains consistent injected melt volume in the moulding process, iQ clamp control monitors the mould breathing to adjust the optimal clamping force, and thirdly, iQ flow control will connect the injection moulding machine, which is equipped with the e-flomo electronic temperature control water distributor, to the temperature control unit, enabling the pump speed to automatically adjust to the actual requirement. This results in higher energy efficiency.

Engel will make the iQ weight monitor standard on all new machines as of Fakuma, where in every cycle, the software compares the injection pressure profile with a previously defined reference curve, and simultaneously records viscosity changes as well as the injection volume. In this way, it provides especially accurate performance indicators for the continuous monitoring of processes.

Engel will also continue to expand the range of applications of the iQ clamp control software. New for Fakuma 2017 is a version for the large hydraulic machines of the duo series - iQ flow control, the third assistance system presented at Fakuma, connects the injection moulding machine, which is equipped with the e-flomo electronic temperature control water distributor, to the temperature control unit, enabling the pump speed to automatically adjust to the actual requirement. This results in higher energy efficiency.

Fakuma: Friedrichshafen, Hall A5, booth 5204.
