Step change in moulding

Injection moulding quality, production and process control by cavity pressure measurement

WHAT IS CAVITY EYE?

Cavity Eye is a pressure sensor, data acquisition and control instrument with software that helps to analyse and control the injection moulding process by cavity pressure measurement.

Cavity Eye is a startup company but we have over 30 employees right now. We focus on injection moulding technology, R&D and real innovation, not for marketing.

TECHNOLOGY

Injection moulding is a complex process. The effective production depends on hundreds and hundreds of parameters, on the mould, material and the employee too. It is the reason sometimes very difficult to find the best parameter combination of moulding or find out what is the root problem of failure production and the high scrap ratio.

Injection moulding is a blind flying if one makes decisions without enough information. The Cavity Eye is an extra information channel from the cavities of the mould.

The setter person can see what happens inside of the cavities and the machine set up can be optimized.
It is easy to make the fine tune of the parameters and the system can optimize online without human failure.

Benefits of Cavity Eye:

  • Market leader innovative technology;

MOULD ACCESSORIES

 

Best solution to mould instrumentation

PC15 Pressure Sensor

up to 5 Kn

PC26 Pressure Sensor

up to 40 kN

Mould Plug with Memory

OVERVIEW

Cavity Eye developed waterproof (IP67) and shock resistant pressure sensors. The sensors are electro resistive and the excitation is 5 V (some former Cavity Eye instrument also used 12 V). The Cavity Eye provides sensor in different load range and different body size. 1 and 5 kN sensors’ diameter is 15mm and the 20 and 40 kN sensors’ diameter is 26 mm. Cavity Eye is using only indirect sensors because our experience is the indirect measurement is more accurate than the direct ones and there is no maintenance of the sensors during the mould’s life time. Thanks for the sensor body the installation is easier than any time before.

The sensors are installed to the clamping plate of the mould and the ejector pin and an extra transfer pin behind the ejector pin press the sensor tip (measuring surface). If there is no ejector pin, ones can use static pin for the measurement so 100% of the moulds can be prepared for Cavity Eye instrumentation. The maximum mould temperature of the standard sensor is 100°C, the medium temperature (MT) sensor works on 150°C and the high temperature (HT) sensor is prepared for 200 °C.

  • If the diameter of the ejector pin is less than 2 mm, use 1 kN sensors;
  • If the diameter of the ejector pin is bigger than 2 mm but less than 6 mm, use 5 kN sensors;
  • If the diameter of the ejector pin is bigger than 6 mm but less than 12 mm, use 20 kN sensors;
  • If the diameter of the ejector pin is bigger than 12 mm, use 40 kN sensors;

Our support is the pillar of your success

Moulding, training, consulting and cavity pressure control

OVERVIEW

The Cavity Eye provides not just products but services too for the success. We believe that the cavity pressure application is easy, but the new customers have to understand and study the basic rules of technology.

The best way is to make the first projects together from design to DOE. If you need more trainig, we train injection moulding from begginers to experts.

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 install the sensors together then test the mould in toolshop. After the mould clamp, we optimize the process by cavity pressure. A Cavity Eye engineer gives a training of “curve reading” and DOE analysis based on cavity pressure. The software and other applications also the part of the training. After the training, the longer term one-two days production will be analyzed. Stability, restart, and production restart also based on cavity pressure. After one week test period the customer has got enough experiences for making decision of purchasing. The Cavity Eye provides discount from the products if ther purchasing happens after a successful pilot program. Test it together without any risk.

On-line support

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.

Remote Control

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

TRAINING

Basic training of injection moulding (10-15 days)

This training is recommended to beginners who has no or has minimal experiences in 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’s plant by two trainers.

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. 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 at the customer’s plant or in the research centre.

Custom training

Training for customer request by exceptional topics.

Cavity Eye training (3 days)

This training is for customers who need 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
