Injection molding is one of the most popular techniques for global plastic production. With this automation technique, the plastic product can be manufactured at a low cost with a complex geometrical shape. A manufacturing process with the high productivity of an injection molding machine depends on molding pressure and temperature inside the mold cavity. In this research, an experimental work is performed to determine a process monitoring system using asynchronous data acquisition, through the incorporation of wired piezo-ceramic sensor to acquire pressure of injection molding system. This piezoelectric sensor is designed in such a way that, a Bluetooth device can be connected with a sensor and can take live data reading of parameters from the running molding machine.
