Real-Time Process Data Smarter moulding with new monitoring system
Mold-Masters introduced its new Smartmold injection mould monitoring system, a cloud-based software platform dedicated to the plastics industry providing real-time data to drive injection molding innovation.
The new Smartmold monitoring system from Mold-Masters collects process data from sensors embedded within the injection mould. This offers feedback and insights that drive enhanced productivity. In addition to collecting sensor data, Smartmold software offers performance tracking, downtime tracking, scrap tracking, maintenance reminders, alerts, reporting, analytics, mold info, document storage and more.
Although the system is focused on the mould, it also has the potential to pull data from injection molding machines. Smartmold is compatible with any brand of equipment.
Real-time data is accessible 24/7 though the company's desktop online portal or on its mobile app. A major benefit of cloud-based systems is that they ensure users always have the latest version (no manual updates required) and do not require users to have their own IT team dedicated to support its functionality.
Data collected through Smartmold is displayed on the intuitive desktop and mobile interfaces. However, users also have the freedom to Pull data into existing ERP/MES systems through API’s. Additionally, data can be exported from the system in various formats (Excel, csv, xml, net, etc). The system is compatible with any brand of hot runner/mould. Additionally, users have the option to utilise the Smartmold infrastructure to obtain data from their injection machines. Users can connect moulds only, injection machines only or connect everything. Users can scale the system to their facility and budget requirements and only pay for what is used.
Server facilities operating in all major regions offers compliance with local data privacy laws and enhances data response times. Smartmold offers global installation and technical support.
