In this paper, a real-time condition diagnosis system for the lens injection molding process is developed through the use of LabVIEW. The built-in-sensor (BIS) mold, which has pressure and temperature sensors in their cavities, is used to capture real-time signals. The measured pressure and temperature signals are processed to obtain features such as maximum cavity pressure, holding pressure and maximum temperature by the feature extraction algorithm. Using those features, an injection molding condition diagnosis model is established based on a response surface methodology (RSM). In the real-time system using LabVIEW, the front panels of the data loading and setting, feature extraction and condition diagnosis are realized. The developed system is applied in a real industrial site, and a series of injection molding experiments are conducted. Experimental results show that the average real-time condition diagnosis rate is 96%, and applicability and validity of the developed real-time system are verified.
