Aisemo mooves from cows to injection molding machines
By Karen Laird
Sustainable Plastics
At fi rst blush, the link between
a cow's ear tag and an injection
molding machine may seem tenuous.
However, it turns out that the
technology that works for one,
works just as well for the other. A
case of lateral thinking at its best.
In 2009, Aisemo GmbH founder
Wolfgang Auer developed a technology
called Smartbow, which
uses an ear sensor to collect data
on the movements and body temperatures
of cows and to monitor
their behavior. If this changes in
any way, a self-learning algorithm
can predict why this is happening.
Werner Schwarz, CEO of the
young Austrian startup, at the
company's booth at K 2022 explained
how this could be relevant
for injection molders: " The
sensor in the ear tag enables artifi
cial intelligence to be used to
discover what is going on. In this
way it is possible to tell very early
on, for example, whether a cow
is ill or even pregnant, " he said.
" In the same way, we thought it
should be possible to monitor the
performance of an injection molding
machine, using simple Bluetooth
sensor technology. "
The idea led to the founding of
Aisemo, short for artifi cial intelligence
sensor technology monitoring
and founded in 2019 by
Auer and Schwarz, who run the
company as managing partners.
Now at K for the fi rst time, Aisemo
is showcasing its noninvasive
and manufacturer-independent
solution based on artifi cial intelligence
that, Schwarz said, will continue
to be expanded as more and
more data is collected.
No interface
The system stands out, among
others, because of its ease of installation.
It consists of a Bluetooth
sensor that is glued to the
moving side of a clamping unit,
a measuring module for power
consumption, a tablet computer
and an edge gateway. Aisemo
provides the full package to its
customers.
" No interface is needed. Data
on the temperature, movement
of the clamping unit and energy
consumption of the machine are
collected and sent to the gateway
via Bluetooth. The gateway transmits
this information to our cloud
in Frankfurt am Main, where it
is analyzed and sent back, " said
Schwarz. He emphasized that the
brand, year of construction, machine
drive and controller type,
as well as the mold used and the
material processed, are wholly irrelevant.
Transmission occurs via
an SSL-encrypted connection.
Any deviations in cycle times,
movements,
ambient
temperatures
and power consumption are
immediately detected and communicated
to the machine operator
on a tablet or a browser-based
device, enabling a prompt response
to problems, avoiding
unnecessary downtime and minimizing
rejects.
Targeted at SMEs
The company provides its services
on a subscription basis.
Customers are not required to invest
in an expensive software and
equipment upfront: " Typically, this
is easier for customers to digest, "
said Schwarz. " They just have to
pay a subscription fee, which is
very affordable, and we provide
the rest. "
Currently the company's customers
are mainly in Germany,
Austria and Italy and consist largely
of injection molders
with heterogeneous
machine parks that
want to use Industry
4.0 applications. " Our
customers tend to
be the small to medium-sized
converters,

privately owned companies, with
around 20, up to no more than 100,
machines. "
The basic package was recently
expanded with the addition
of two new functions: an energy
monitoring module and a module
for order planning in production.
" The big advantage of the order
planning module is that it
uses real-time data that comes
directly from the machine on the
shop fl oor. It makes it
possible to respond
and plan based on
what is actually going
on, " he said.
The analysis of
production sequences
helps to optimize
manufacturing processes and
save costs. Incorrect planning,
such as overlapping use of molds
and machines, is avoided.
Very little data is actually needed,
making the system very simple
to operate, he added.
The software has been designed
to be easily mastered in
a short time, which contributes
to the high rate of acceptance
among plant operators.
