Greater insight - transparency in injection moulding
ErgoTTY is the hands-on software tool for process data acquisition, documentation, analysis, and security on Sumitomo (SHI) Demag injection moulding machines.
Recording PDA statistics
Up to 10 values of process data acquisition (PDA) on Sumitomo (SHI) Demag machines with NC4-control system can be recorded over an extended period of time directly on the fixed disc of a PC.
For reliable data monitoring and archiving, the tool saves process data plus date and time from cycle to cycle - also in the ASCII format.
All data can be simply and conveniently stored for relatively long archiving periods on any type of data carrier. There is no need for hard-copy archiving.
The process data can be imported in a simple way into and evaluated by popular spreadsheet programs (e.g. Microsoft Excel®).
Detailed data material
If desired, it is possible to transfer and store the associated screens from the operator panel/Ergocontrol display with the PDA data - e.g. temperature profiles or setup settings
All that is required is a suitable cable between operator panel and PC and the software. The Ergo TTY program runs both under Windows 95/98/Me/XP and under Windows NT.
