consecutive serial numbers or ones allocated by random generators. All relevant quality data associated with production of that specific hanger is stored in the central computer and could be available anytime during the warranty period or lifetime of the part. The "smart factories" of Industry 4.0 need smart machines controlled with smart software.

One of the existing packages is HiQ Melt, which measures the required drive work (screw torque) during metering. It thereby detects viscosity changes due to incorporation of recycle or batch-to-batch variations in virgin resins. Demonstrating individualized production of yellow polycarbonate hangers, each printed with unique data. A robot moved the part past an inkjet printer nozzle (at left in each photo) mounted on the robot's horizontal beam. 18 OCTOBER 2018 Plastics Technology I N J E C T I O N M O L D I N G Close -Up On Technolog y
