The M-Powered iMFLUX Module is the cutting-edge technology of adaptive processing control. Backed by years of processing exploration, the M-Powered iMFLUX Module will help to improve part quality, but also decrease the energy required to produce it. As part of the M-Powered suite of tools, the iMFLUX Module and molding technology will allow for several real-time adjustments to mold and material changes. These real-time adjustments coupled with the other M-Powered analytical tools are designed to assist in improving OEE through adaptive process control. iMFLUX combines advanced data collection with intentional solutions so that your assets are as effective as possible and further assisting your team in maximizing productivity. Using iMFLUX, molders can increase productivity by up to 50% on existing injection molding machines. The process is ideal for most molding applications, but is especially advantageous for wide specification materials, recycled materials, and can help a biomaterial work for many more applications. This will continue to be an increasing sustainability focus for molders and brand owners.
