Mold-Masters SmartMold is a cloud-based software platform dedicated to the plastics industry providing real-time data to drive injection moulding innovation. Process data is collected from sensors embedded within the injection mould which offers feedback and insights that drive enhanced productivity. This solution is the first step towards predictive and autonomous capabilities within the facility.
In addition to collecting sensor data, SmartMold software offers performance tracking, downtime tracking, scrap tracking, maintenance reminders, alerts, reporting, analytics, mould info, document storage and more. Although SmartMold is focused on the mould, it also has the potential to pull data from injection moulding machines. Real-time data is accessible 24/7 though a desktop online portal or on a mobile app. A major benefit of cloud-based systems is that they ensure the latest version is always available and do not require users to have their own IT team dedicated to support its functionality. SmartMold algorithms enables the path to predictive and other powerful capabilities. It offers unlimited data storage.
Data collected through SmartMold is displayed on an intuitive desktop and mobile interfaces. However, users also have the freedom to pull data into existing ERP/MES systems through API’s. Additionally, data can be exported from the SmartMold system in various formats. Mold-Masters SmartMold is compatible with any brand of hot runner/mould. Additionally, users have the option to utilise the SmartMold infrastructure to obtain data from their injection machines. Users can connect moulds only, injection machines only or connect everything. Users can scale the system to their facility and budget requirements and only pay for what is used. Server facilities operating in all major regions offers compliance with local data privacy laws and enhances data response times. SmartMold offers global installation and technical support.
