MyAssist collates data from IMMs

Dec. 28, 2022
Sumitomo (SHI) Demag’s smart solution can track and analyze key performance indicators.

myAssist Sumitomo (SHI) Demag’s newest smart solution — a platform-independent software solution that runs within users’ networks — collates data from individual control systems on injection molding machines (IMMs) and some peripheral equipment, and allows for corresponding comparisons to be performed on historical data. Data can include pressure, temperature and injection profiles, and carbon-dioxide consumption; the software can correlate this data to individual shots, cycles and parts. It also can trace recycling material.

What’s new? The smart capability, demonstrated on three work cells at the K Show featuring Sumitomo (SHI) Demag’s IntElect 75, IntElect 220 and El-Exis SP 420 Servo IMMs. 

Benefits Access to even deeper insights in the injection molding process. Using the data collected by myAssist, customers can track and analyze key performance indicators. Among other benefits, this helps simplify the process for less-experienced injection molding personnel, reduces waste, and increases efficiency and productivity.
