Collaborative programme between plus10, SKZ and Sumitomo (SHI) Demag identifies AI
advances and how injection moulding machines from multiple manufacturers can learn from each
Schwaig, January 2022 – The Fraunhofer spin-off plus10 has been conducting application-oriented
research together with the South German Plastics Center SKZ. As part of their DarWIN research
project, new AI-based process optimisation tools have been developed specifically targeting
