Putting it All Out There

Next month marks the 18th annual Amerimold expo (amerimoldexpo.com), but for this year’s event, we have decided to keep all of the learning on the show floor.

That means our traditional technical conference program will now take place in a tech theater in the exhibit hall, amidst all the product, equipment and services technology on display (turn to page 56 for a sampling). These Tech Talks are sponsored by Autodesk and will be free with your exhibit hall registration prior to May 10. In addition to the following sessions, we will also be holding in-booth machining and molding technology demonstrations.
 
 
You can see the full education schedule here. Tech Talks include: 
 
Putting Additive Manufacturing to Work for You. Phoenix Deventures, MGS Mfg. Group, Conformal Cooling Solutions and 3D Systems/Cimatron will discuss hybrid machine technology, 3D-printed cores and cavities, multi-layer 3D robotic deposition, and software solutions. 
 
Using Automation to Productionize Mold Manufacturing. Industrial Molds Group and Erowa will cover “real-time” mold production. 
 
Unleash the Full Potential of CAD and Simulation Tools. Longterm Technology Services and Autodesk look at making designs live, and simulation solutions to optimize the mold-build process and quality.
 
Strategies for Reducing Mold Downtime. Mold-Rite Plastics and MoldTrax will show how to use metrics to measure, set PM frequencies and calculate unscheduled mold-stop costs.
 
Realizing the Full Potential of Machining Technology. Krieger Craftsmen will share its use of the right machining technologies to enable extended lights-out machining. 
 
Smart Molding: Understanding the Mold and Machine. Winzeler Gear will present the value of using new “smart” molding machine technology. 
 
Using Data to Drive Improvements. Precise Tooling Solutions will break down how the right data will improve your decision-making and change your company culture. 
 
The Key to Optimal Machining Productivity. Paragon Die & Engineering and Autodesk will show how CAM can ensure parts with exceptional precision and quality, with no manual polishing or rework.
 
Maximizing Cutting Tool Performance. Haimer and OSG USA will talk about eliminating chatter in very deep machining, and EDM versus machining cycle times when deep L/D ratios are involved.
 
Advances in Hot Runner Technology. HTS International, HRSflow and Synventive will discuss passive cooling devices, valve pin monitoring; conformal cooling and heating on bushings, gate pads and hot-runner manifolds; and fine-tuning melt flow and volume.
