Thermoplastics injection molding has found increasing use in several industry sectors. To achieve high effectivity of the process and desirable quality of the manufactured product, correct and precise parameters setting is critically important. As injection molding is a sophisticated process it is often hard to take care of all the changes occurring during its application. However, implementation of artificial intelligence (AI) methods in control and monitoring systems of injection molding machines can increase controllability and additivity of the process. This paper gives an overview of different studies related to research on the topic of monitoring and control systems for injection molding and explains why application of AI methods would be beneficial.
