Press release
The aim of the research project is the quality-oriented reduction of energy consumption by the example of the injection molding process. As a measure of the energy consumption, the power consumption is used, which is necessary in this process to generate heat, movement and pressure. Reducing energy consumption with the same or improved production rate is achieved by an automatic determination of optimum process parameters.

Publications about the project

Many companies can or must reduce energy consumption in their production. The Institut für Integrierte Produktion Hannover (IPH) has developed procedures and a formula with which companies can improve the energy balance. At the same time the quality of products can be increased by this approach.

process management software, quality costs, reliability engineering

The method of injection molding is one of the most important processes in the processing of plastics. Thus moldings can be produced economically in large quantities and with a high reproducibility. Besides quality the energy consumption in the production is an important part because of the energy transition and the rising energy prices. In particular, small and medium enterprises from the plastics processing industry in Germany with about 3,000 companies are, therefore, forced to optimize their processes and production equipment energetically.
