Training and Support
Pilot program – let’s start together
One week service in plant. The preparation of the project is online. We consult about the goal of the project, former production failures and statistics, instrumentation, sensor positions, design, modification and manufacturing.
After the online preparation we visit the production plant of the customers and we together install the sensors, we test the mould in toolshop. After the mould clamp, we optimize the process by cavity pressure. We give a training of “curve reading”, and DOE analysis based on cavity pressure. The software and other applications also the part of the training. After training the longer term one-two days production will be analyzed. Stability, restart, and production restart also based on cavity pressure. After one month test period the customer has got enough experiences for making decision of purchasing. The Cavity Eye give discount of price of products, purchasing after pilot. Test it together without any risk.
Design and design review
The designers of the Cavity Eye can modify and make review of the 3D designs after signing of NDA of course. The review is free of charge and takes 1…3 days, the design has service charge.
If the customer has any kind of difficulties of the application of Cavity Eye, in case of invitation we can connect to the Cavity Eye instrument and give online support (mould analysis, production analysis, statistical analysis, software update etc). Thanks to this online service, you do not have to wait for a service engineer and the problem can be solved in a day.
Personal support, Consulting
If the online support can not eliminate the problem, a Cavity Eye service engineer can visit the production plant of the customer and help in:
· Sensor installation, and dry test in the tool shop (mould preparation)
· Instrument installation
· Production and failure analysis by DOE
Basic training of injection moulding (10-15 days)
This training is recommended to beginners who has not or minimal experiences of injection moulding. The goal of the training is to study and practice the steps of mould changing. After the training they will be able to clamp the mould and prepare the machine for production. They will not be able to start the production alone. The length of the training can be 10 or 15 days, depending on the knowledge of the participants.
After the training they will be able to work in shift, but they need a mentor for a month to get more experience and study the local rules.
The training is organized at the customer by two trainer.
Intermediate training for machine setters and technologies (5 days)
This five-day-training focuses for the theoretical background of injection moulding, but all the theory can be verified during the training in practice too. The 60% is theory and 40% practice of the training. The program focus on:
· Material properties and material preparation
· Material tests and measurement (MFI, moisture, mechanical properties…)
· Parameter set (material temp. mould temp, speed, pressure…)
· Mould trial (how to prepare a mould for the first test, first shot)
· Process analysis, DOE (to determine the optimal machine parameters and define the mould failures, necessary modifications)
· Cavity pressure analysis
· Production failure analysis (understand, reproduce, modify, eliminate)
The training can be organized in the customer or in the research centre.
Training for customer request by exceptional topics.
Cavity Eye training (3 days)
This training is for customers who needs complex program for study the application of the Cavity Eye system.
· Mould design and sensor installation
· Measuring instrument installation
· Software application
· Machine set up and fine tune by cavity pressure
