About course: “Xscale – Introduction”
Weight is a very important factor for plastic parts. Therefore, a scale can be used through out the injection molding process. Before going to the machine, the correct amount of master batch for the production needs to be weighed. Next, the setter needs to find out the correct packing time. This time can be figured out the best by comparing the influence of the packing time on the part weight. During the production, it is important to control and document the stability of the production. This can be done by weighing the parts as well. For pad printing or a production with polyurethane, it is important to determine the right mixing ratio. Last but not least, the part count can be simplified with a scale. This way the correct amount of parts can be easily figured out to be sent to the customer.
The Software “Xscale” is developed by Plexpert to simplify all of these weighing steps. Documentation of the important values and the setting of the possible tolerances make the usage of “Xscale” very valuable. Furthermore, “Xscale” can be linked to the other Plexpert programs to get even more benefits. Try it out now, it is a free software and is simple to use. This course explains all the functions in detail to make sure that you can get the most out of “Xscale” and your scale.

Project Management Simulation at PLEXPERT GmbH.
I am specialist in injection molding simulation with Moldex3D for many years. From 2011 – 2017, I worked at Simpatec GmbH. Since 2017 I am working at PLEXPERT GmbH as simulation project manager.
Analyzing and optimizing molds for many years it is still astonishing for me to see that many companies do not pay close attention to one of the most important things on a mold – the cooling system. Due to the huge impact of the cooling system on quality, time and money I had the idea to clarify what are the important factors and how one can make more out of the mold.
Enjoy the course and if you should have questions regarding one of your own molds, just contact me.
