Injection Molding

Injection molding is a process used in many industries ranging from automotive and medical to food packaging and consumer goods. Regardless of the industry in which they are active, injection molders are faced with several challenges:

  • Margins are typically low – there’s no allowance for inefficiencies or scrap. Any deviation from planned manufacturing processes quickly leads to financial loss.
  • Increasing liability risks – in the automotive, food and medical industries  better control and logging of manufactured goods is required.
  • Vulnerable supply chains – with often only one mold covering worldwide supply of specific parts, a problem with a single mold can shut down a billion dollar supply chain for days or weeks.
  • Limited digital expertise – although firms use sophisticated machinery and equipment, data and systems are often kept in silos, restricting insight and leaving  a tremendous efficiency potential untapped.

TimeSeries has extensive experience in the injection molding industry and has worked together with Siemens to implement a set of applications and templates which greatly reduce cost and risk and help you to optimize production outcomes. These templates leverage the Mendix low-code platform as well as MindSphere, the Siemens IIoT platform.

Paperless Shop Floor

While office work and administration is typically well served with software, shop floor employees are often left to pen and paper or Excel. This often leads to inconsistent and inefficient workflows and a failure to follow validated processes. The TimeSeries Paperless Shop Floor enables shop floor employees to always maintain best practices, be efficient and compliant. From mold tryout, to mold setup, operation and material handling. Everything is covered, including digital issue management:
