Molding & Additive

Molding and Additive

The molding and additive industry is a rapidly growing field that involves the production of plastic and metal parts using a variety of techniques, including injection molding, blow molding, and additive manufacturing.SHOPGRID® manufacturing execution system (MES) can provide significant benefits to the molding and additive industry. Here are some of the key ways in which SHOPGRID® MES can benefit this industry:
  • Real-Time Data Collection: SHOPGRID's MES can collect real-time data on machine performance and labor efficiency. This information can be used to identify bottlenecks and inefficiencies in the production process and make adjustments to improve overall efficiency.
  • Quality Control: SHOPGRID® MES can manage the quality control process for each product that is manufactured. It can track inspections and testing results and flag any products that do not meet quality standards. This helps to ensure that the final product meets the required specifications and minimizes the risk of defects or other quality-related issues.
  • Inventory Management: The molding and additive industry requires a high level of inventory management to ensure that the right materials are available at the right time. SHOPGRID's MES can manage inventory in real-time, providing up-to-date information on the availability of materials. This can help reduce waste and minimize the risk of stockouts or excess inventory.
  • Production Tracking: SHOPGRID's MES can track the progress of each product through the production process. This provides real-time updates on the status of each job, including the completion of individual tasks and the overall progress of the job. This can help identify bottlenecks and other issues in the production process and make adjustments to improve overall efficiency.
  • Reporting: SHOPGRID's MES can generate reports on key performance indicators (KPIs) such as machine utilization, labor efficiency, and quality control. These reports provide insights into the production process and help identify areas for improvement.
SHOPGRID® MES can help the molding and additive industry to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and deliver high-quality products to their customers. By providing real-time data on machine performance, labor efficiency, inventory management, and quality control, SHOPGRID® can help manufacturers to identify bottlenecks and inefficiencies in the production process and make adjustments to improve overall efficiency. Additionally, SHOPGRID® can help companies meet the strict quality requirements of the molding and additive industry, ensuring that the final product meets the required specification
