Kistler introduces advanced injection molding process-monitoring system

Kistler, a global supplier of dynamic pressure, force, torque and acceleration measurement for the injection molding industry headquartered in Winterthur, Switzerland, introduced its newest product, the ComoNeo process monitoring system.

Equipped with optimized touch-based operation, the display is more closely tailored to user needs, offering the benefit of an increased number of channel inputs: Twice as many cavity pressure signals can now be recorded. The ComoNeo software incorporates a process-oriented operating philosophy that offers active support in analyzing process fluctuations and monitoring component quality.

Kistler said that the new system is suited for “quality-conscious companies that aim for systematic analysis and optimization of their processes” and for firms that focus on the transparency of their injection molding processes and comprehensive documentation of component quality.

“The launch of ComoNeo has moved automated monitoring of the injection molding process into a new dimension,” said Product Manager Daniel Fick. “A host of innovative functions position ComoNeo as a powerfully attractive process monitoring system.”

In addition to a systematic process (Evaluation Assistant/EO Assistant) that guides the user quickly and accurately to the rejection limits, ComoNeo features a dashboard, an overview screen that collates all relevant process data to give a clear picture of how the production lot is currently progressing.

ComoNeo offers a variety of additional new tools such as automatic mold identification to prevent errors on the interface between the mold and the integrated monitoring software. Automated mold selection also reduces retooling times.
