  • Patent number: 6984120
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to suppress a clamping force from sharply increasing when dies are clamped in an electric direct-acting die clamping unit of an injection molding machine. A movable platen is arranged to face a stationary platen. A stationary die is attached to the front surface of the stationary platen, whereas a movable die is attached to the front surface of the movable platen. The movable platen is connected to the front surface of a backup plate via four coil springs. A nut of a ball screw is fixed at each of diagonally-opposed corners of the backup plate. The threaded rod of the ball screw passes through the backup plate via the nut. The tip portion of the threaded rod is rotatably connected to the stationary platen. The rear end portion of the threaded rod is connected to a motor.

  • Patent number: 6914537
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a method of monitoring operation data for quality control with a little possibility that a nondefective product is mistakenly determined as a defective product even if the operation data fluctuates in a large waviness curve. Every time an operation data piece for quality control is obtained, a moving average of the predetermined number of data pieces lately obtained is calculated. When the deviation of a data piece from the moving average exceeds the tolerance limit, an alarm is generated. By employing the method of the present invention for monitoring operation data such as charging time, injection time and the amount of cushion in an injection-molding machine, the accuracy of determination as to a defective or nondefective can be improved.

  • Publication number: 20030059493
    Abstract: A direct type clamping assembly for a motorized injection molding machine to maintain a clamping force for a predetermined time without causing motor stalling is disclosed. A stationary platen and back plate are fixedly attached to a base, and a movable platen is slidingly associated with the base. A housing is disposed in front of the back plate with coil springs disposed between the housing and the back plate. A nut of a ball-screw assembly is rotatably accommodated in the housing with a bearing. When the ball-screw assembly is rotatably driven, the movable platen moves forward, stopping when a mold is completely joined together. The housing can accordingly move backward as the ball-screw assembly is further rotatably driven, compressing the coil springs and generating and maintaining the clamping force. Slight rotation of the motor prevents motor stalling, and the resulting slight movement of the housing scarcely influences the clamping force.

  • Patent number: 6325954
    Abstract: An injection speed control procedure is applied to controlling an injection screw included in an electric injection molding machine and driven by an electric motor. An injection process is divided into a plurality of injection stages. Injection speed at which the injection screw is moved is changed at a time point when a value PS obtained by integrating injection pressure with respect to the position of the injection screw or a value PT obtained by integrating injection pressure with respect to injection time coincides with a predetermined reference value determined for each injection stage.

  • Patent number: 6018344
    Abstract: In a history display method, positional information and type information are extracted from nodes to be displayed on respective metaphors, thereby allowing a user to intuitively comprehend the nodes in a sense of a map of routes followed among information sources. The history holding section 101 reads a history indicating the routes followed by user from the memory unit 105 and holds the history. The history geographical analyzing section 102 analyzes geographical information contained in the history. The history managing section 103 controls the result of the analysis of the history. The history display section 104 displays the history analysis result by use of metaphor display along with a node connection relationship. The novel constitution provides the user with a new clue namely geographical information for accessing desired nodes and displays the history on a map metaphor, thereby allowing the user to intuitively comprehend the nodes in a sense of a map of routes followed among information sources.
