Reliable cost accounting
For each IMM and each mould, the average specific energy consumption per product, per cycle, per hour is automatically calculated. Separate data collection allows you to compare the energy efficiency of different injection molding machines and moulds.
Energy loss control
Sometimes the machine does not produce products for several hours, but it is turned on and the heating of the material cylinder continues to consume electricity. This happens more often than we think. You will see the real volume of losses for any interval: day, month, year, or for the entire life of the injection molding machine.
Failure and downtime visualization
Long change of moulds, late start of the working day, smoke breaks and tea ceremonies. You will find out how much these rituals cost to you, in hours and in units of non-manufactured products. Perhaps you do not need another injection molding machine, but just replace a few negligent workers.
Monitoring violations of the established mode
Do workers sometimes accelerate cycle time at night and on weekends to increase production to the detriment of product quality and equipment life? Adjusters do not use to the full all the capabilities of modern injection molding machines, even when the plan is on fire? Now you do not need to listen to excuses that the electricity was turned off at night or a meteorite fell somewhere nearby. You will clearly see if the esteblished range of the working cycle was observed every minute and every second of working time.
Online production monitoring
You don't need to go to the workshop or use a whiteboard with markers to find out which machines work and what products are manufactured. It is enough to hang a common screen in the production department and those responsible will see a reliable picture online. Having gone on vacation and having a smartphone or tablet on hand, you will be aware of everything that happens in the workplace.
Improving discipline of workers
Even the dummy camcorder increases the involvement of personnel in production activities. Using Zoomator, employees understand that you not only observe the work process, but also see their activities from the inside: every product manufactured and every working fail. You can also include new indicators in the KPI system.

How to organize a system of preventive maintenance for injection molding machines and, especially, for moulds working on different machines? Often the only available option is calendar maintenance: once a month, quarter, year, etc. Zoomator can determine the necessary scheduled work, based on the actual output in hours or in clamps.
