You asked for it!
The new touchscreen compatible, user-friendly v10 eDART was designed based on customer requests to make it more intuitive, easier to set-up, and require less training to operate! Feedback we've received on the new software is:

"Navigation is easier with the improved screen layout."

"The new Mold Sensor ID feature makes cavity pressure sensor set-up easier. It's a one person job."

"Being able to visually see and test Inputs and outputs at configuration will prevent problems down the road."

"It's easy for our operators to quickly see how the process is running via the Overview Screen."


Also, due to customer requests the v10 eDART:

  • Gives you easy access to the process details you need. If you want to know the cooling rate, just touch the cooling portion of the curve.
  • Is fully compatible with V9 mold and machine configurations
  • Allows you with one click to see where your actual process is, in comparison to your template (for mold, machine, and material).
  • Has fully functional Valve Gate software (in October)

    For upgrade information contact our customer support department.


eDART Software v9.2 Released

Balance Viewer Now Standard
The "Balance Viewer" tool is now included on all v9 eDARTs. This tool displays cavity sensor data for multi-cavity jobs in histogram format. It makes it easy to see a "rogue" cavity that is filling early or late. It also displays balance values for other important summary data such as cycle integrals, cooling rates etc. One customer found a blocked cooling line on a 16 cavity tool when he noticed a low cooling rate on one cavity.

The Balance Viewer tool is found under "Applications" in the Architect on the eDART. You will find documentation on how to use it on the eDART Upgrade CD. This is in the form of video, .pdf and powerpoint files.

New Optional Software Tool: "2-Shot Enhancement"
We now supply an optional (purchased) tool that adds 2-Shot capabilities to the eDART. You will need sequence signals from both the first and second shot barrels. Once installed you attach the "enhancement" tool to a 2-shot machine. Then you enter the intensification ratio (for hydraulic machines) and screw area. Finally you tell the software which cavity pressure sensor is fed by which barrel.

After this setup procedure the eDART now does the following:

  • Displays "normalized" curves for the second barrel: plastic injection pressure and volume.
  • Computes a complete set of machine variables for the second barrel (e.g. hold pressure etc.).
  • Provides "delayed" set of machine summary values for the first barrel for part sorting, if needed.
  • Delays cavity pressure alarms from the first shot and combines with the second so that rejects from either shot will be discarded.
