aXw Control FillAssist

Producing the first good part quickly and safely

The FillAssist function for the GESTICA control system allows the filling level of the component to be animated in relation to the current position of the screw as a 3D graphic in real time. Expert installation technicians also benefit from this information as it saves them valuable time.

The FillAssist function enables the ALLROUNDER to identify the injection molded part that it needs to produce. To this end, the simulation model created offline and the component geometry are read directly into the control system. The GESTICA user interface allows installation technicians to interactively compare the results of the simulation with the filling behavior of the last cycle.

Highlights

  • Support of filling studies with filling pattern display
  • Visualization of the flow front in the 3D view of the cavity in correlation with the screw position
  • Interpretation of injection curve charts no longer necessary
