AI (Artificial Intelligence) in Injection Moulding - The Future of Machine Learning​

Dr. Thorsten Thümen / Senior Director Technology / Sumitomo (SHI) Demag

  • Brief overview of Global Market trends in Injection Moulding, Growth Areas, Materials and Processing Trends.

  • Exploring the advantages and challenges of implementing Machine Learning (ML) techniques in a smart factory environment. The enabling technologies which allow the implementation of ML in the factory – OPC-UA etc. The methods and techniques to model the process, the advantages and drawbacks of where the modelling work is performed (on the machine or separately).  

  • Looking at how AI can help with optimizing the injection process to deliver higher quality and output, while at the same time reducing the requirement for the intervention of skilled staff.

  • Demonstration of the STASA QC System and the SD AI Dashboard, including Simulation of plasticizing, cavity filling, part cooling. Real-time automated process optimizing and trouble shooting using the AI Dashboard Expert System.

  • An explanation of the enabling technologies and techniques which make this possible, as well as considering the problems and pitfalls.

Challenges and solutions of recycled plastics in injection moulding

Dipl.-Ing. Günther Klammer / Vice President Plasticising Systems & Recycling / Engel

New Technologies  and process optimization gives opportunities in the usage of recycling materials. The lecture gives answers to the following questions:  Which kind of recycling plastics can be used in injection moulding?  Which technologies are available for processing of recycling materials on an injection moulding machine? How to increase the amount of recycling material and the recyclability of a product? A prospective of recycled Material in the injection moulding business will be given.   


Resource efficient production : How digitalisation supports  the circular economy?

Benjamin Franz / Manager Digital Solutions / Arburg

Digitalisation, efficient use of resources and reducing CO2 emissions – these challenges are becoming increasingly important in the plastics industry. This presentation showcases innovative solutions offered by  digital products, associated with all activities relating to a circular economy. Our goal is  to increase  production efficiency.

Solving problems before they occur, the eyes of Industry 4.0

Daniel Carillo / Latin America Sales Manager / Intravis

Inspection technology plays a vital part in the Plastic Packaging Industry to prevent product errors or contamination, which could result in high costs and damage to brands, but what do vision systems bring to the table when it comes to industry 4.0? The system explores innovations in plastic packaging inspection with vision technology, and the importance of process data to close the loop and offer the unique possibility for the inspection system to drive process optimization.

Quality upgrade of recycled plastics

Manuela Feuerstein / Sales Manager / Eisbär

When we are talking about recycling plastics, we often have to face the problem that post consumer packagings do have a certain smell left, could be a nice one like a shampoo but could also be a bad one (oil, fish smell etc.) After the regranulation of the PET flakes we still have the problem of the smell, that is coming from so called "VOC"s (volatile organic compounds). Together with Erema, Eisbär developed a system, called Refresher, that is able to  remove this VOCs. it'll be shown the whole thematic with the recycling process and also explain the technology.
