Enhancing Quality Monitoring With Process Models


Every injection molding facility aims to achieve zero defect in production. One efficient way of attaining this goal is to integrate quality assurance into the process. Quality assurance in series production uses various methods and measurands. One effective way of quality monitoring is the usage of process models. Process models represent an extended form of process value monitoring, because it correlates key process values to the specified part characteristics. As a further benefit of such process models, part characteristics can be calculated directly and compared with the specifications during the process.
