Control Units and Software for Adaptive Moulds

We offer different Control Unit solutions for our adaptive moulds. The size and content of the Control Units depend on the adaptive mould size and capabilities. The onboard software that allows for Computer Aided Manufacturing is operated on the HMI touch screen.

Pult Cabinet

Ideal cabinet for smaller and medium size adaptive moulds, that can hold up to 3 PSU’s each 24V 125A. The cabinet is easy to re-locate and only requires two power cable connections. Air ventilation makes it operational in temperatures up to 35° C.

The touch screen is visible in daylight, artificial light and under dark conditions, and easy to clean between operator shift.

Steel Cabinet DxWxH 400 x 800 x 973
Touch Panel PC 12,1″ (2 GB RAM, Intel Atom Processor, SSD 32GB)
CAM / HMI software Windows (C, c#, WPF)
Com cables 5 mm x 5 meters
Air vent cooling 450 m3 / h
Movement Controller (PCB)
Powersupply up to 3 x 24 V 125 A

Large double door cabinet

Ideal cabinet for larger adaptive moulds, that can hold up to 10 PCU’s each 24V 125A. The cabinet is best placed wall sided in stationary production setup. The air condition makes it operational in temperatures up to 55° C.

The touch screen is visible in daylight, artificial light and under dark conditions, and easy to clean between operator shift.

Movement Controller (PCB)
Powersupply up to 10 x 24 V 125 A

Laser projector

This high-power laser projector with a fiber-coupled laser source offers the highest projection accuracy. It is optimized for displaying 2D and 3D projections. Presentation of CAD data is easily doable with the enclosed LPM software. Coupled with the laser projector, it can also be used as a multi-projection system.

The laser is IP65 protection class with high temperature stability. Cooling options such as a fan hose and water cooling are available for use at higher ambient temperatures. Ethernet is the typical data connection mode. In addition, communication via Profinet or a serial connection is possible

Control and Steering Software Adapa Tools

AdapaTools is the application used for transfering panel shapes from CAD to the Adaptive Mould.

The software is a plugin to Rhino3D, an easy to use CAD program for curved shapes and geometries.

With AdapaTools it is easy to select the panels of interest and verify the geometry for the tolerances of production. Optional production requirements can be added when working from AdapaTools.

For example: The user is prompted to input which side of the panel should be facing the mould side, which lines the laser projection should include as visual guidance, the panel thickness, panel name, edge numbering, etc.
