Injection Molding

At TSM Control Systems, we understand the complexities of injection molding and the challenges that arise in the production process. We provide cutting-edge solutions that not only meet but exceed your processing needs.

TSM Control Systems – Your Solution for Advanced Injection Molding Applications


Injection molding is a versatile and commonly used manufacturing process for the fabrication of plastic parts. Its applications span across various industries including automotive, medical, consumer goods, and more. Yet, despite its ubiquity and advantages, the process can come with its fair share of challenges. TSM Control Systems are here to provide you with solutions to those challenges.




Managing Directors and Senior Project Engineers encounter several challenges in their daily operations, including:

  1. Material Handling: Ensuring homogeneous blending of materials, managing multiple recipes, and precise dosing of additives is no small task. The lack of precision can lead to quality issues in the final product.
  2. Energy Efficiency: The pressure to reduce energy consumption without compromising production quality or throughput is a significant concern. High energy costs can impact the overall profitability of operations.
  3. Inventory Management: Accurate tracking of material usage and inventory control is critical to avoid production downtime and maintain operational efficiency.
  4. Downtime Reduction: Every moment your machines aren’t running due to maintenance, cleaning, or recipe changes is a moment of lost productivity.

Energy consumption is a significant consideration in injection molding. High energy use not only drives up operational costs but also contributes to environmental degradation. At TSM Control Systems, we understand the need to balance efficiency with sustainability, and that’s why our solutions are designed with energy optimization in mind.

In addition to our energy-efficient dosing and blending systems, we’re proud to have access to Sumitomo Demag Injection Molding Machines. These machines are fully electric, offering an array of benefits:

  1. Reduced Energy Consumption: Sumitomo Demag’s fully electric machines consume up to 70% less energy compared to conventional hydraulic injection molding machines. This reduction leads to significant cost savings and a smaller carbon footprint.
  2. Precision and Speed: Electric injection molding machines offer superior precision and injection speed, allowing for the production of more complex and high-quality parts.
  3. Lower Maintenance Costs: With fewer moving parts and no need for hydraulic oil, electric injection molding machines have lower maintenance requirements, further reducing operational costs.
  4. Quiet Operation: Electric machines are quieter than their hydraulic counterparts, contributing to a more pleasant working environment.
  5. Clean Operation: Without the need for hydraulic oil, the risk of oil leaks and contamination is eliminated, making electric machines ideal for cleanroom applications.

By integrating TSM Control Systems’ products with Sumitomo Demag’s fully electric injection molding machines, we offer a complete package that not only addresses the challenges in injection molding but also significantly reduces energy consumption, operational costs, and environmental impact. Our mission is to assist you in creating a more efficient, sustainable, and profitable injection molding process.

Our product range has been specifically designed to tackle these challenges head-on. With TSM Control Systems, you can expect:

  1. Precision & Efficiency: Our Opti-Mix Gravimetric Batch Blender and Opti-Feed SLIW Gravimetric Dosing system ensure precise control over material feed rates and blending. By ensuring only the required amount of materials and additives are used, these systems can minimize waste and reduce the energy expended in processing excess materials.
  2. Self-Optimizing Systems: Devices like our Opti-Mix Gravimetric Batch Blender are self-optimizing, continuously adjusting to maintain optimal operation. They work only as hard as necessary, using less energy when possible.
  3. Centralized Systems: Our Multi-Blend system allows for central blending and distribution of materials to multiple machines, resulting in significant energy savings.
  4. Inventory & Material Management: The Opti-Batch Material Totalizer provides real-time measurements of material usage, helping to manage inventory more efficiently and avoid unnecessary machine operation.
  5. Downtime Reduction: Our products are designed to reduce downtime, whether that’s from changing recipes or performing maintenance. Less downtime means more efficient use of the energy the machines consume.
  6. Automation: Our products offer a high degree of automation, meaning they can operate with minimal human intervention. This not only reduces labor costs but also makes the entire production process more energy efficient, as the systems are designed to optimize their own operations.
  1. Precision Control: Our systems offer precise control over feed rates and blending, ensuring the highest possible product quality.
  2. Intelligent Automation: Self-optimizing capabilities ensure optimal performance at all times, reducing the need for manual adjustments.
  3. Centralized Operation: The Multi-Blend system allows for centralized blending and distribution, reducing energy usage and promoting process efficiency.
  4. Real-Time Inventory Management: The Opti-Batch Material Totalizer provides real-time data on material usage, aiding in efficient inventory management.
  5. Energy Efficiency: Our products are designed with energy conservation in mind, helping you reduce your environmental impact while also saving on energy costs.
  1. Improved Product Quality: Precise control over material feed rates and blending results in consistently high-quality products.
  2. Cost Savings: Through reduced waste, improved energy efficiency, and lower labor costs, our solutions can help reduce your overall operational costs.
  3. Sustainable Operations: With a focus on energy efficiency, our products support your efforts towards sustainable and environmentally friendly manufacturing.
  4. Increased Productivity: Less downtime, efficient material handling, and automation lead to increased productivity and higher throughput.
