Software for the calculation of savings when using hot runner systems
Hot runner systems are increasingly used for a wide range of applications, mainly because of technical and financial savings. Thanks to this trend, many tools are modified into hot runner molds. Such a modification is often initiated for qualitative reasons completed by technical and financial factors. However it is not sufficient to take the quality requirements as the main criterion. That is why EWIKON has developed software for calculating economic savings from the use of hot runner systems, which takes all criteria into account. This software shows the financial advantages of hot runner systems compared to cold runner solutions for particular projects. The Cost Compare program makes it possible to change or modify all influencing parameters for precise calculation of economic efficiency. For example, data of the molded piece, mold, and machine has the same weight as the energy and material data. By such an approach it is possible to determine material, financial and production savings.
With this software the customer obtains precise data and certainty for taking the correct decision.
The calculation provides the following results:
- Cost saving in %
- Cost distribution of the runner systems (hot runner/cold runner)
- Economical quantity of products with regard to the runner system used
