One of the latest entries from Hasco (U.S. office in Fletcher, N.C.) will be shown at K 2016 in Dusseldorf next month. The A5805 Screw Memory is a 16 GB module with USB interface that is screwed directly into the mold so that it is flush-mounted and protected. It can archive all mold-specific or part-specific data to document the production process. It also can store mold designs, injection parameters, and milling programs.
