How stable are the processes in your plant?

RJG has designed the Process Stability Dashboard to manage quality for all molds that run in your plant, whether they have in-cavity sensors or not. RJG recognizes that it is not practical to put cavity pressure into every mold all at once. The next best thing is to monitor the machine and material and make corrections in a systematic way.

Since you cannot find or manage these variables by walking around the plant, an overview is provided on the eDART™ network that shows each machine's status and how much it has deviated from the process it should be running. Once you record a process "template" the eDART sends a record of any deviations in machine speeds and pressures from that template to the overview. A quick scan down the overview screen will let you know any processes that aren’t being run as they should be. You are supplied with numerical and graphical tools that let you "drill down" into the causes of the problem. This shortens the time to find causes and keeps utilization up.

If you have a particular problem or critical molds that require in-cavity sensing you can add sensors to them as needed. These are then displayed in a third meter that tells you if all of your cavity pressure sensors match their templates.

Using this tool suite with good training and systematic methods you can now get constant feedback that your quality procedures for process setups are being followed. And you can do some intelligent adjustment to processes when material changes. In short, if you don't know what is broken you can't fix it. With these tools you can know instantly and address issues more effectively and efficiently.
