Tip of the Day 40: How Controls Depend on it

I hear after sending yesterday’s tip that I got a little carried away with too much information in one message. If so, you can just file it for later reference if you need it.Today, in more abbreviated form, we discuss how controls depend on sequencing. Pack to...

Tip of the Day 39: How Values Depend on it

We have covered most of the ways that the eDART can get its Machine Sequence information. The reason for getting the sequence right is so that the eDART will calculate accurate summary values. One of the most important values calculated is Effective Viscosity during...

Tip of the Day 38: The Rest of ’em

We have covered Machine Sequence / Injection Forward and Machine Sequence / Fill ad nauseum. Let’s complete the punishment by covering the rest.Sequences Dependent on External Inputs Machine Sequence / Screw Run: Usually goes on and off with the Seq. Module...

Tip of the Day 37: Machine Fill from Inj. Peak

In Tip #36 you saw how the eDART uses a fixed fill volume number to mark the end of fill, as the machine says it.Typically the user forgets to set the fill volume when he starts up a mold1 (see footnote at end). The sequencer starts with a default fill volume of 10000...

Tip of the Day 36: Machine Fill Graphics

As the previous tip discussed the best measurement of “filling” from the machine’s point of view is to have fill start after the suck-back is “used up” and then end fill at a fixed volume. This provides a stable signal for such summary values as Effective Viscosity /...
