ERJ staff report (TP)
Fridingen, Germany − Elastomer injection moulding technology specialist DESMA said it will offer customers the opportunity when purchasing a new machine to test a free light version of its optimisation software Propter.
At present, DESMA supplies new injection moulding machines with Propter integrated in the machine control system. Customers now have the option to test a free light version for 60 days upon activation. Afterwards they can decide whether they want to buy and continue to use this slim version or to change over to the full one.
DESMA said: “Compared to the full version, PropterLight has a distinctly reduced performance scope. This has, however, the positive effect that this version can be understood after a relatively short time of instruction.
“Propter supports operators and setters like a Sat Nav by providing them with proposals regarding the perfect machine adjustment for each case. The objective is to produce secured part quality with highest possible productivity within an optimal working window.
“Both systems are completely integrated in the machine control, which means that separate hardware is not necessary.”
DESMA is headquartered in Fridingen, southwest Germany – and also has production sites in the US, China, India, and Slovakia. It has around 500 employees worldwide and over 4,500 injection moulding machines in operation.
