ONLINE – Expert Group Meeting – Smart Maintenance

We are pleased to invite you to our next meeting of the Smart Maintenance Expert Group. The meeting will take place online.

Thomas Wuhrmann from Kistler Instrumente AG will talk about

Machine Learning based Cause of Failure Analysis in Injection Molding & Metal Machining

In industrial manufacturing processes, the most important tasks are usually concerned with an improvement of the quality outcome, a reduction of waste and an improvement of the process stability. This applies specifically to injection molding and metal machining with a turning lathe. Injection molding is the state-of-the-art process to produce plastic parts in different shapes and sizes. Machining on the turning lathe allows to perform highest precision process steps on expensive raw materials using specialized cutting tools. In both applications, machine learning allows to harness the process information more effectively to improve the yield of in-specification parts and understanding the quality-determining process mechanisms. In this talk Kistler approaches to implement solutions to realize this in both applications will be presented. In both applications, the insights obtained by machine learning, though different in nature, allow a reduction of waste. In both fields, further investigations are aimed to generalize these models and fully integrate them into the corresponding process automation and control.


14:30-14:45 An Introduction Round.
14:45-15:30 ML based Cause of Failure Analysis in Injection Molding & Metal Machining (Thomas Wuhrmann, Kistler Instrumente AG).
