As the most important molding fixture in the plastic injection molding process, the quality of the mold is related to the quality of the plastic product. The maintenance and maintenance of the mold is the key to improving the quality of the product.
Smart manufacturing is a market actively cultivated by new start-ups. However, due to the need to combine domain knowledge in different manufacturing fields, it is not a short time to gain customer trust. Therefore, for new entrepreneurs, they must try to learn from what they are good at. Cut into the field.
Under the manufacturing thinking familiar with the plastics industry, intending to optimize production process management, the introduction of customized solutions has helped many traditional plastic factories to transform into wisdom.
As far as the plastic injection molding process is concerned, the mold is a very important molding fixture. Therefore, for the needs of smart manufacturing, mold management is a deeper intelligent application than equipment management or utilization management. Generally, the number of molds managed by a plastic factory ranges from three to five hundred to as many as thousands. From storage to maintenance, a more effective management mechanism must be used to avoid confusion that affects production operations and even affects product quality.
In the plastic injection industry, improve the management loopholes caused by information omissions in traditional factories. Therefore, it is advocated to connect the information of people, machines, materials, and methods in the production process, try to improve the information dimension to describe a more complete outline of production behavior, and then sort out the causality of abnormal production.
Mold management is a very important part of it, including orders, which plastics and molds should be prepared in time? Where is the location? Which molds have aging problems such as wear or rust, and should be repaired as soon as possible? These problems are the daily issues that traditional plastic factories face.
Thanks to the current mature Internet of Things technology, the location and status of each mold can be tracked through RFID, and this information is connected to the production management system. In the future, when dispatching work, factory managers can not only quickly grasp the specific location of the mold in the factory, but also Under the integration of multi-dimensional data such as quality inspection, it is also possible to see the pros and cons of molds affecting processing quality, and to track the service life of molds through information such as maintenance records.
