Wittmann Battenfeld has joined a host of equipment suppliers to offer its customers a smartphone app for online support with their machines. Named ‘WIBA assist’, the app supports users in machine setting. It is based on a materials database which contains the most important process parameters. These can be retrieved directly by users. The values are also used for various calculations. For example, by entering a few parameters, values such as cooling time, cavity pressure, injection pressure, clamping force, dosing volume or screw speed can be calculated.
“WIBA Assist” also provides a function for trouble-shooting, where a description of the most frequent injection moulding faults and defects including suggestions for remedial action can be retrieved.
“WIBA Assist” is available free of charge for iPhones, Android phones and Windows phones.
