An innovative control scheme for position deviation compensation of mold opening end point of injection molding machine
Through communication with the injection molding machine, the injection robot obtains the position deviation of the injection molding machine in time, and then actively compensates for this position deviation. Regardless of the accuracy of the position of the injection molding machine at the end point of the mold opening, the injection robot can accurately track the mold to achieve high-precision pick-up, inlay and other applications without reducing the mold opening speed.

Evaporative Chiller
Evaporative chiller: 1. In the future, the injection molding workshop of the central water supply system of the whole plant will not need cooling water tower, pool and cooling water pump, so as to save installation time and floor space, and realize the constant temperature of the whole plant (+ 5 ℃ to + 35 ℃, with adjustable temperature). 2. Power saving: low condensation temperature, low power consumption of the unit and good refrigeration capacity. Compared with air cooling, water cooling unit saves energy. 3. Water saving: the evaporation condenser mainly uses the latent heat of vaporization of water, and the water consumption is small. Compared with water-cooled units, it saves water. 4. Cost saving: saving time, space, electricity and water is equal to saving cost. 5. Easy to use: the unit can be used after connecting the pipeline and power supply. No additional supporting equipment is required. 6. Water quality: the evaporative chiller adopts a closed process chilled water circulation system to 100% eliminate the direct contact between process chilled water and air. High quality water quality can greatly improve the service life of the main engine, mold, auxiliary equipment and pipeline in the production process. 7. Outdoor temperature limit: the cooling water tower cannot be used at the outdoor temperature (- 35 ℃ to + 45 ℃), and the evaporative chiller can be used normally without being affected by the ambient temperature. 8 maintenance: descaling agent or antifreeze can be added in the closed process chilled water circulation system, and pipeline maintenance can be carried out while working during equipment operation.
