Critical insights on reducing cycle times and reject rates will be a focal point at the 2015 Conformal Cooling Conference on September 29 at the Toshiba Technical Center, Elk Grove Village, Illinois. Titled Practical Application of Conformal Cooling Coupled with Rapid Heat/Cool Technology, the event will provide moldmakers, OEMs and brand owners with information to help improve their process and reduce costs. Additionally, the conference is ideal for technical, engineering and management professionals at automotive and medical companies.
 
A live demonstration of both conformal and conventional cooling technologies will be featured. As an added bonus, a rapid heat/rapid cool demonstration will be conducted on the same molds (provided by Linear Mold & Engineering). This will allow attendees to observe, in real time, the impact and benefit of these emerging technologies. Robert A. Beard & Associates, Inc. a provider of technical, engineering and management support for plastics and Plastic Technologies, Inc., a global leader in plastic-based package development are the conference sponsors.
 
Conformal cooling of injection molds is a game changer in the molding industry. Typical cycle reductions of 20 to 40 percent can be realized. Lower reject rates are accomplished because of uniform cooling and stronger parts are achieved through lower molded-in stress,” Beard says.
