If you are interested in sharing your challenges to better mold building operations and learning about some technology solutions that will yield higher quality molds and end use parts, then you need to check out the Build block of sessions at Amerimold 2015:

EDM, Maximizing Efficiencies When EDMing Copper Alloys: Join the discussion on certain properties of copper alloys and their impact on EDM applications. Items examined will include electrode material selection and tips for increasing productivity when EDMing these material types. Also presented will be a case study of an actual production EDM application with copper alloy cores and the financial impact that the electrode material and process parameters had on manufacturing costs. Poco Graphite, David Pedersen, Flextronics, Inc., Jack Fiorito

Mold Components, Fundamentals of Optimized Mold Cooling Circuits: Industry experts will review optimized mold cooling circuit design for injection mold assemblies with current techniques. It will examine how mold cooling is evolving as new software and mold cooling components, such as specialized materials and conformal cooled inserts, increase cooling efficiency, and reduce machining time by decreasing mold component lengths and shortening plate thickness. Hasco, Brenda Clark and Fidorra Design, Jay Fidorra

Cutting Tools, Reducing Costs with Safer, More Reliable Machining: This presentation will discuss the benefits of truly understanding the effects of heat, methods and resources for heat reduction and its impact on the bottom line. It will examine technologies that allow for safer and more reliable operation in environments where machinists are required to operate multiple pieces of equipment at one time and where lights out manufacturing is occurring. Attendees will walk away knowing where the costs are and how to reduce them. Iscar, Tom Raun

Machining, The Lights Out Imperative: What is the lights out imperative? This presentation will answer that question by revealing how one shop is competing globally by producing more without adding employees. You will learn a systematic approach to establishing a more productive process for your company. You will also get a glimpse of how remote machining permits control of your machines from your Smart Phone including notifications of machine stoppages or alarms. Hard Milling Solutions, Corey Greenwald

Automation, You Can’t Afford Not to Automate: By automating existing and new equipment, companies can get 30 to 50 percent more utilization with the same staff.  Explore the variety of automation solutions available as well as some case studies showing how automation has improved throughout within some companies. EROWA Technology, Inc., Chris Norman and Hommer Tool & Mfg, Inc., JR Hommer

Molding, Mold Considerations when Assessing Robotics Requirements: The interaction of the mold to the molding machine impacts mold and part quality, as does post molding care and handling. Attendees will learn about robot technology and conveyor systems—including two-shot, pick-and-place versus rotator system, soft drop conveyor systems and more—used in post-molded product handling.   Krauss Maffei, Jason Holbrook, Injection Molding Division

Cutting Tools, Key Elements of Shop’s Milling Program: Find out why programming is key when it comes to machining. It will explain why you shouldn’t think carbide first, but instead the machine, fixturing and toolpath. Proven strategies for cutting tool optimization will be shared to help to answer the question, “What drives this process? A process review for selecting the right milling tool and secrets to keeping your cutting tool alive will also be presented. All of this will help to increase milling success. Ingersoll Cutting Tools, William Fiorenza and Chicago Mold and Engineering, Bill Kloskowski

Machining, Machining Strategies to Transform from Moldmaking to Mold Manufacturing: Industry experts will share real world examples on how the application of the latest high-speed machining technology transformed a moldmaker from a shop using conventional production techniques of machining, fitting and polishing to a world-class mold manufacturer applying highly precise, predictable machining as well as faster, streamlined production and fewer operations. Methods Machine Tools, Jeff Johnson and Extreme Tool and Engineering, Mike Zacharias
