Kistler Instruments will showcase the latest versions of its injection moulding instrumentation for ‘zero-reject’ quality control at Plastics Design and Moulding (PDM) 2013, which is due to take place on 18–19 June at the Telford International Centre.

The company — which will be found on Stand C015 — will present the Como Injection cavity pressure monitoring system and the Stasa QC software for injection moulding.

Products in detail

Como Injection cavity pressure monitoring system

  • This now provides mould recognition and the automatic loading of mould data, making mould connection and setting easier and faster during mould changes.
  • New connectors, with mould ID chips, simplify the loading of mould and product data sets and indicate connection errors on the Como Injection touchscreen display or PC.
  • Connection errors are detected quickly and can be corrected before they can cause any problems.

Stasa QC software

  • Designed to support Como Injection, the Kistler Stasa QC software requires fewer physical trials to increase process stability and part quality while optimising cycle and setup times.
  • With the help of a statistical design of experiment (DoE), the software systematically determines the effect of relevant machine parameters on part quality and optimises the operating point, taking into account all optimisation targets.
  • A stabilised process, high part quality and short cycle times translate into higher output rates and savings.

Kistler Instruments

Established in Winterthur (Switzerland) in 1957, the Kistler Group now has a worldwide presence with 23 group companies and 30 distributors ensuring prompt, local application support and short delivery times. With a staff of more than 1,000, the Kistler Group is one of the world’s leading providers of dynamic measuring instrumentation.

Kistler’s core competence is the development, production and use of sensors for measuring pressure, force and acceleration.  Kistler’s know-how and electronic systems can be used to prepare measuring signals for use in analyzing physical processes, controlling and optimizing industrial processes, improving product quality in manufacturing and improving performance in sports and rehabilitation.

Kistler offers a comprehensive range of sensors and systems for engine development, automotive engineering, plastics and metal processing, installation technology and biomechanics.

Heavy investment in research and development, 15% of staff worldwide are engaged in research and development, has generated a number of innovations using piezoelectric, piezoresistive and capacitive techniques to provide solutions to numerous force, pressure and acceleration measuring problems. These innovations include the world’s first commercial quartz sensor, two-wire constant current technology to integrate sensors with microelectronic circuitry, high-temperature pressure sensors for use up to 400 Deg C and three-component force measuring sensors.
