KraussMaffei Group offers the APC calculator, showing potential financial savings with the new machine function of adaptive process control.
An online version is available, in five languages.
The APC function automatically compensates for fluctuations in the injection molding process. To use the calculator, first enter the parameters of shot weight and cycle time, which produces the throughput rate. For the second step, enter the price for new material. You can then select the reduction in the reject rate and the increase in proportion of recycled material. The APC calculator then automatically calculates the annual money savings.
