The iMFLUX System
IS COMPRISED OF SOFTWARE, NOZZLE, PRESSURE SENSOR, AND USER INTERFACE AND WORKS ON ANY MACHINE.
Compatible with virtually any machine from any manufacturer – hydraulic, electric, hybrid, new or old.
You can standardize across your operation – keeping it simple for your engineers and enabling state-ot-the-art process control.
The iMFLUX Technology
CHANGES THE INJECTION MOLDING PROCESS THROUGH CLOSED- LOOP FEEDBACK THAT MAINTAINS LOW CONSTANT PRESSURE.
This innovative method automatically adjusts to viscosity and environmental variation. iMFLUX works on any machine, mold, or material. Business runs smoother, machine learning begins, and molding occurs uninterrupted.
Hear how iMFLUX technology can help you mold the future…
The Green Curve
THE GREEN CURVE TAKES YOU FROM VELOCITY CONTROL TO LOW CONSTANT PRESSURE CONTROL TO PACK AS IT FILLS THE PART WITH NO FLOW HESITATION AND FASTER CYCLE TIME.
Re-invest lower pressure to run smaller presses, up-cavitate your molds, enable material flexibility, and design and run that impossible part.
IMFLUX ADDRESSES THE TRIPLE BOTTOM LINE – PEOPLE, PLANET, AND PROFIT.
Your people will be able to focus on more value added work – since your lines run smoothly with fewer touches.
You will efficiently run recycled materials, use less energy, and produce less waste – for a happy planet.
Your company will profit – since iMFLUX improves operating efficiency and can help reduce cost.

Adding iMFLUX to our production cells has enabled our presses to run with less downtime and higher output. Quality has also improved, which frees up our operators to focus on higher value work.
This closed-loop processing technology combined with the accuracy and adjustment of our machine yielded amazing results with exceptional simplicity.
Running recycled & reprocessed materials is hard to do…iMFLUX adjusts the process keeping parts consistent and in quality spec without operator time sitting at the monitor - all while avoiding scrap.
We have customers running iMFLUX in a wide variety of applications, machine sizes, types, and resins. Our joint iMFLUX-Milacron customers have seen many benefits, including, cycle savings, energy savings, scrap reduction, reduced tonnage and tighter and more consistent part dimensions.
The benefits we have seen with iMFLUX have been a reduction in cycle time of existing molds and also the ability with new tools to increase cavitation by up to 50%, which allows us to free up injection molding capacity and production space for other activities.
Over six years ago, our early joint research with iMFLUX identified a number of interesting advantages over conventional molding practices, but also identified a number of challenges. What has been exciting to see is iMFLUX’s ability to take these challenges and turn them into strengths. Today iMFLUX has emerged as a method and a highly advanced control system that is providing a much needed alternative to the way the industry currently thinks of injection molding.
We truly believe the technology behind iMFLUX will drive a step change in the way injection molding is done. This is why we have been a partner and have systems running on large programs in Europe and North America, as well as development systems in our Innovation Center.
iMFLUX has proved to be a valuable asset to our injection molding operations. We recently inherited a transfer tool from one of our customers that was under a strict time deadline. Initial sampling with standard decoupled processes were yielding scrap rates of 20-25%. Utilizing IMFLUX’s Auto-Viscosity Adjust software, we were not only able to improve cycle time by 15%, but also reduce part weight and reduce scrap rate to less than 1%. It was a significant win for both us and our customer.
The Green Curve has proved invaluable in our effort to establish more processes using sustainable resins. Not only have we been able to increase our percent of regrind used, but we are seeing more consistency than ever before.
We are excited to be able to offer iMFLUX integrated solutions, and with Milacron’s M-Powered IoT portal we will be able to quickly install iMFLUX technology and offer technology updates as they become available.
