At this year’s Fakuma event from 14–18 October 2014, Kistler will present sensors and systems for inspecting the quality of injection moulding processes. Visitors will also be able to see the newly developed CoMo DataCenter 2.0, which is claimed to offer diverse and sophisticated options for documenting and evaluating production data from the CoMo Injection System.

Sensors and systems by Kistler are said to provide comprehensive process monitoring that results in 100 per cent quality in series production, zero-defect production and minimal manufacturing costs as a result. They measure and analyse the cavity pressure in injection moulding, monitor the process and filter rejects out as soon as they occur.

Integrating quality inspection into the actual injection moulding process itself brings about considerable technical and economic advantages, such as cost reduction and time savings. 

At the show, visitors will be able to see Kistler’s sensors and systems for measuring and analysing cavity pressure. The company said its cavity pressure systems facilitate comprehensive control of the injection moulding process and help achieve zero-defect production. 

Also on display will be the CoMo DataCenter 2.0, which provides an overview of the status of each injection moulding machine and the option for production monitoring and process analysis, also on mobile devices CDC links all the user’s CoMo Injection Systems, even across different production sites, seamlessly combining process- and quality-related production data for both live and completed orders in one database. This ensures unlimited comparability of data — and fulfils the growing customer demand for documentation and traceability of production data.

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.
