Open modular multilevel integrated control system for injection moulding plastic machines along with its complete technical specifications

The basic objective of this project has been to develop an operating system that is completely open programmable adaptable to the company's and/or customer's own operating system, with an user-friendly environment and besides, that is the same for all the company's machines, in accordance with EUROMAP and ISO TC 184 guidelines, and with minimum, affordable maintenance.

This new "modular multi control system" can be available for all kinds of injection moulding machines, irrespective of their trademark and year of manufacture, different from the current operating systems. In fact, this modular open standard contemplates the control of the basic functions of plastic injection machines, and lets the incorporation of new functions to be developed by the manufacturers. It contemplates all levels of work, from the machine's connection to its access through the Internet, passing through a control system based on a programmable automaton. Moreover, it can be connected to other software environments in the same computer, local nets and the Internet.

The potential customers of this new control system in mid-term would be Injection Plastic Converters and Injection Plastic Machinery Manufacturer. Nevertheless, the technology might be adapted to whatever automation development of any machine (whatever sector), in long term.
