SOFTWARE SOLUTION FOR FAST DETERMINATION OF THE OPTIMAL MACHINE SETTING AND OPTIMIZATION OF PRODUCT QUALITY IN ONE MOLD CHANGE LOOP

Product Description

For an exact Analysis of the optimal machine setting and precise fine tuning of the mold

The expert software CQC® Set Up is part of the CQC® Continuous Quality Control product family that has been developed by Dr. Gierth Ing.-GmbH in Germany for more than 20 years.

Performance Features

  • Enables a precise planning of mold trials by making use of design of experiments (DOE)
  • Considers limiting boundary conditions during mold sampling
  • Establishes a statistical simulation model of the production line based on the machine setting to forecast the quality features of the molded part
  • Allows the flexible specification of the optimization target by considering
    • the possible range of the machine setting
    • the weighted quality targets for features of the molded parts and cycle times
    • the presetting of the production reliability level
  • Determines the optimal machine setting based on the simulation model according to the optimization target
  • Calculates the quality features of the molded part for an optimal machine setting
  • Calculates the mold correction data for an optimal machine setting
  • Establishes the “process window” of the optimal machine setting, i.e. the permissible variation of the machine settings during in-spec part production
  • Calculates the shortest possible cycle time
  • Prepares sampling reports of the complete process know-how of the production line fully automatically, for internal and external presentation and documentation purposes (Audit) in Microsoft® Word

Additional Information

Benefits

  • Distinct cost saving by good-part production at a defined level of reliability at shortest possible cycle time
  • Optimization of molded part quality in only one mold change loop
  • Shortest possible project schedule enabled by exact process knowledge in advance
  • Fast cause analysis in case of errors
  • Precise control of the process in case of deviating quality features due to environmental influences and material variation
  • Documentation of the complete process know-how and thus the company know-how

Advantages in the Work Process

  • Precise planning of the time requirement for the mold sampling
  • Exact description of the production line behavior in the workspace available according to the results of the sampling:
    • optimal and easy adaption to changing boundary conditions
    • no need for new sampling at the production line
  • Standardized documentation ascertains the know-how and makes facts available for subsequent projects at any time. Thus the quality management and the set-up of new projects is made easier

Areas of Application

  • Analysis / Determination of optimal machine settings
  • Analysis / Determination of possibly required mold change data

Type of Product

  • Stand-alone software of the CQC® Expert product line, suitable for Windows® operating systems starting with Windows® XP®
  • Can be extended to CQC® Supervision at any time
