Remote Validation Kit Expedites Qualifying Process
Progressive Components announces its remote validation kit, which enables tooling engineers to validate their tools remotely.
Progressive Components announces its remote validation kit, which enables tooling engineers to validate their tools remotely. The kit is a plug and play tool that provides real-time data by connecting the portable system to a CVe monitor on the mold. Then, info is accessible from across the plant or around the world.
The kit improves the PPAP or IQ/OQ/PQ approval process to help speed molds into production. Additional benefits include reducing or eliminating the need for tooling engineers to drive or fly back and forth to suppliers’ sites to validate tools; tooling that can move into production even if the customer can't travel on-site; a virtual file cabinet for mold documentation, activity reports and process sheets; and an expedited qualifying process following the tool build.
The importance of plastic part traceability and how to achieve it.
Understanding the effects of injection on the core, slide and associated components is critical to selecting the best side-action methods for a given application. This first of two articles will discuss the basic physics underlying all side-actions.
With a firm understanding of the effects of injection on the core, slide and associated components, this second of two articles will discuss emerging modular technologies which provide alternatives to the limited solutions previously available.
