aXw Control ReferencePilot

Regulated holding pressure for high-quality moulded parts

The ReferencePilot, a feature of the machine controller, can be used to ensure consistently excellent quality in injection moulded parts. In this case, the holding pressure is regulated with exceptional precision on the basis of the pressure profile in the mould. Interference variables such as viscosity fluctuations in the melt lose their influence on the part quality.

The ReferencePilot is based on the principle of recording the internal mould cavity pressure characteristic of a moulded part deemed to be of good quality and employing this as a target characteristic. The adjustment characteristic of the regulator is also documented.


  • Consistent part quality thanks to a constant pressure characteristic in the mould during the holding pressure phase
  • Significantly reduced number of start-up cycles
  • Easy determination of target characteristics Convenient parameterisation of the controller
