MoldWatcher™ can be installed on horizontal and vertical shuttle or rotary injection molding machines and die-casting machines. It also works on Metal Injection Molding (MIM) Processes
In the case of a horizontal press, MoldWatcher™ automatically inspects for inserts or quality of the part while in the mold and the empty cavity, cores and slides after the part is ejected. This insures that no stray parts are left behind to damage the mold during the next cycle.
While on a vertical press, it ensures that all inserts are properly placed prior to permitting the table to index and the mold to close. The system will also detect miscellaneous items that may have been left on the lower mold half. After ejection, the system checks to ensure all parts have left the upper mold half.
Harsh environment molding processes require specialized camera cooling and enclosures. See our NightHawk™ product offering.
