'Validator' Ensures Quality Control for Plastic Injection Machines

Schlemmer Associates develops a monitoring application to alert plastic injection machine operators to potential quality issues immediately.

No machine operator wants to see the result of a machine error after the fact. The ability to monitor a process as it happens and guard against problems is a cornerstone of an efficient production line. That’s why the well known Japanese manufacturer of the machine developed for Toyoda Gosei (TGKY), contacted Schlemmer associates to develop an application that would assist operators of a plastic injection molding facility in Lebanon, Kentucky, monitor their injection molding process in real-time.

Thomson Technology Generates Huge Time Savings with InduSoft

Any facility is only as reliable as its power source. The equipment we depend on to ensure we have electrical power must be robust, and reliable. That’s why the equipment produced by Thomson Technology is so critical to power generation infrastructure, as is the HMI that connects those systems to their human operators. When Thomson Technology began to research a better development platform for their flagship Series 2400 switchgear, they needed to find a product that would be as reliable as the equipment they produce.

Graham Engineering Reinvents Blow Molding Machine Interface

Plastics are ubiquitous in our lives. They act as packaging for nearly every good we purchase. They are present in many of the products we use daily, including the cars we use for transport and bottles we drink from. Today, plastics are shaped using blow molding equipment designed to create a variety of shapes and sizes, using plastic resins with varying mechanical and optical properties. These machines, including the extrusion blow molding machines designed by Graham Engineering Corporation (GEC) are taking advantage of the top HMI development technology in order to give operators more control of this advanced equipment.
