Injection Molding Networking Platform Adds Mold Transfer Software
RJG says the new Mold Transfer software allows users to generate machine-specific setup sheets, recommend compatible machines and more.
The Hub for Mold Transfer from RJG allows users to easily move molds by automatically generating machine-specific setup sheets, recommending compatible machines and providing a database to store and share part, mold and machine documentation across an organization.
Noting that pairing a mold with the wrong machine can impact part quality, create inefficient processes or even damage a tool, RJG says Hub for Mold Transfer ensures proper mold and machine matching.
The program’s features include:
- Facility asset database for machines, molds, parts and materials
- Mold match recommendations for fit and capability
- Universal process sheet database
- Machine specific setup sheet database
- Automatically generated, machine-specific setup sheets
- Revision history
The Hub platform connects RJG’s CoPilot process monitoring systems to a single interface, allowing users to access plant information remotely and use that information to make data-driven decisions, increase visibility, decrease liability and improve operational efficiency.
The platform comes in four packages—Hub Mold, Hub Process, Hub Sim, Hub +—with varying price points. In addition to Mold Transfer, the Hub has a Process Analytics software allowing molders to view historical process data; audit reports for process changes; create plant-wide summary reports; generate plant overview dashboards; and review process statistics. In the future, RJG says the Hub will add Simulation Support software in the future.
RJG’s new Hub Mold Transfer software assists molders in the movement of tools.
Over the past decade, soft-touch overmolding has radically changed the look, feel, and function of a broad range of consumer products.
Start by picking a target melt temperature, and double-check data sheets for the resin supplier’s recommendations. Now for the rest...
If you were buying an injection molding machine 20 years ago, you had to decide between a toggle or fully hydraulic clamp and that was pretty much it.
