With the continuous improvement of efficiency and quality requirements in production, the interaction between various system components becomes more and more important. In the process of the rapid development of the manufacturing industry, digital design and intelligent manufacturing of injection mold have become an objective trend, which has been vigorously promoted and applied by many industrial developed countries in the world, to achieve better development of the industry with the help of this technology mode. In the new era today, the plastic injection industry presents the trend of automation and digital transformation.

However, the CNC rate of key processes in China’s manufacturing industry is less than 50%, and manufacturing costs have continued to increase in the past 10 years. In this context, to maintain competitiveness, Chinese manufacturing enterprises must realize industrial upgrading. If the plastic injection industry wants to achieve long-term sustainable and efficient development, it needs to keep up with automation and digitization.

The automation and digitization of the plastic injection industry are faced with some challenges and requirements:

Intelligent equipment to meet the great demand.

In recent years, the demand for downstream enterprises for general injection molding products has decreased. Automobile, household appliances, and other highly information-based industries will have higher and higher requirements for upstream supplier collaborative manufacturing, which will drive the demand for injection molding machine enterprises for digitalization and information. Using intelligent equipment to meet the great demand is a major requirement of the plastic injection industry.

Intelligent management to create value and reduce cost.

The other requirement is to carry out digital and information processing for intelligent management, collect a large number of big data such as fault analysis, spare parts usage, regional and seasonal rule summary for prediction, so as to create value and reduce cost.

High professionalism to ensure optimal production parameters.

In the process of injection molding production, the production parameters of the same product basically depend on the manufacturer’s recommendation or the experience of teachers and masters. The fine adjustment of one parameter in the injection molding production process will affect the quality of the products’ whole batch. Another challenge to realize automation and digitization in the plastic injection industry is to realize high specialization and determine the corresponding molds’ optimal production parameters.

Life cycle management to reduce equipment maintenance costs.

To provide life cycle management for the plastic injection industry, help it realize the real-time working condition, historical condition and alarm information of equipment, and reduce equipment maintenance cost is also a major requirement for automation and digitization of the plastic injection industry.
