Mold Controllers with Virtual Network Computing Enables Remote Access
Husky Injection Molding System’s Altanium mold controllers are now available with virtual network computing (VNC) options.
Husky Injection Molding System’s Altanium mold controllers are now available with virtual network computing (VNC) options. VNC is a screen sharing technology that enables remote access and control of another computer through transmitting all touchscreen movements from the controller to a client computer, such as an injection molding machine’s operator interface. This enables one computer within an injection molding cell to become the central point of control for the entire operation. Centralizing user interactions with molding equipment increases productivity by reducing movement between different devices critical to the molding processes. This setup also maximizes floor space.
Available with the Altanium Delta5 and Matrix5, VNC brings rich feature sets supported by these operator interfaces right to the machine’s screen. This opens the possibility to supplement or replace the integrated hot runner controller of the injection molding machine with an Altanium mold controller, increasing processing capabilities by applying Altanium’s active reasoning technology to control the hot runner system.

This machine tool diagnostic device allows the detection of errors noticeable only while machine tools are in motion.
Correct alignment lock selection will reduce maintenance costs, molding downtime and increase part quality over the mold’s entire life.
Here are techniques commonly used to combat chatter and guidelines to establish a foundation for optimizing the moldmaking process.
