Abstract

This research develops a control system for mini injection moulding machines for small industries. The problem in this research is identified by looking at technological developments in Indonesia, one of which is injection moulding machines, whose technology continues to develop rapidly, and the demand for plastic products continues to increase. The current problem is that injection moulding machines require a lot of power for production. This research aims to apply the ATMega128 microcontroller to a mini injection moulding machine driven by a motor. The research method started with making machine mechanics, machine electronics and programming. The results of the research use a control system to control the injection moulding machine, adjusting the character of the stepper and DC motors to produce products using PCL and PLA filaments, which are very suitable because of the low temperature and pressure so they can be used on a small industrial scale
