Application: Control method, control system and computer implemented method for determining a predicted weight value of a product produced by an injection molding device (Patent ID: US20240092004A1)

Siemens AG has filed a patent for a computer-implemented method that involves training a machine learning model to predict the weight value of a product produced by an injection molding device. The method includes recording production parameters, predecessor production parameters, and weight values of previous products, and training the ML model using supervised learning with these parameters. Additionally, the patent describes utilizing sensors, control variables, and weighing apparatus to record and determine the parameters and weight values accurately.

Furthermore, the patent outlines a control method for managing the production process of a product using an injection molding device. This method involves adjusting control variables based on predicted weight values compared to reference weight values, ensuring the production sequence continues efficiently. The control system described in the patent is designed to implement this method in real-time, utilizing edge devices and programmable logic controllers to determine weight values and control variables effectively during the production process.
