ALGORITHMS FOR CLOSED-LOOP INJECTION CONTROL IN DIE-CASTING MACHINES

Die- casting machines are well established instruments for the industrial production of light alloy objects. Today’s challenges in die-casting concern the continuous increase in the forces necessary to machines for producing ever bigger objects with strict mechanical properties, such as structural components for the automotive industry.
The aim of my research is the development of a new algorithm for the control of the die- casting process, which consists of the injection of molten metal following given speed and pressure pro[iles, exploiting a high-performance hydraulic system characterized by some varying or partially known parameters, thus requiring some degree of adaptation in the controller.
In this project I’m collaborating with IDRA, a leading die-casting machine manufacturer.
