MoldWatcher TM prevents traumatic mold crashes that cost a fortune and possibly a customer
With each cycle, mold presses run a high risk of experiencing extreme damage due to molded parts or slides sticking. Standard mold protection options only detect the problem as it occurs. Vision mold protection prevents the problem before it occurs. Avalon’s patented MoldWatcher system will alert operators and stop the press before any hazardous force can be put on the mold. This prevents severe mold damage in addition to the related down-time, which can often be more expensive and troubling than the mold damage itself.
MoldWatcher can be installed on horizontal and vertical shuttle or rotary injection molding machines. In the case of a horizontal press, MoldWatcher automatically inspects for inserts or quality of the part while in the mold and the empty cavity, cores and slides after the part is ejected. This insures that no stray parts are left behind to damage the mold during the next cycle. While on a vertical press, it ensures that all inserts are properly placed prior to permitting the table to index and the mold to close. Thesystem will also detect miscellaneous items that may have been left on the lower mold half. After ejection, the system checks to ensure all parts have left the upper mold half.
When knowing the facts is important ProcessRxTM will let you see what happened
Avalon’s ProcessRx process documentation module with image database, event logging and statisticalreports is the answer for your analysis needs. It is the most advanced and easy to use process documentation system available. The Internet Explorer WEB browser permits remote access using the LAN, however most problems are exposed when the user can see an actual image of the inspection. ProcessRx can beconfigured to save all of the Failed images, all of the Passed images, or both. This powerful configuration technique allows the user to define exactly what data they need to capture.
