Injection Molding Company Integrates Modern Functionalities into Legacy Machines

A company had an injection molding machine that communicated over the Euromap15 protocol – a protocol developed back in the 1980s. They were spending a lot of time manually configuring and retrieving data from this machine, as opposed to hooking it into their IT network and accessing it remotely. The Euromap15 protocol does not support the same interface compatibility as the latest versions of Euromap, so integration with their existing IT systems was impossible. If any data was needed from the machine, it needed to be gathered manually at the machine site by an operator – a process that was very prone to mistakes, and led to very costly corrections on a regular basis.

Learn how the HARTING MICA allowed this company to implement modern machine functionalities into their legacy machines.
