Robert A. Beard & Associates, Inc. a well-known provider of technical, engineering and management support for plastics and Plastic Technologies, Inc. (PTI), a global leader in plastic-based package development is announcing the inaugural 2014 Conformal Cooling Conference.
 
The conference is designed for OEM management and technical personnel (Automotive, Medical, other critical application industries), molding companies, and mold making companies to learn from experts on conformal cooling advantages.
 
The event will take place on Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at Automation Alley, Troy, MI. Fees are $ 495.00 which includes lunch and any conference related materials. Session will begin 8:30 AM with Registration open at 8:00 AM.
 
Conformal Cooling of injection molds is a game changer in the molding industry. Typical cycle reductions of 20% - 40% can be realized, lower reject rates are accomplished because of uniform cooling and stronger parts are achieved through lower molded-in stress.
 
“This technology accelerates the speed of heat transfer and does so more evenly on curved and complex geometry than with conventional molds. This results in improved quality and increased profitability”, states Robert Beard. Robert A. Beard & Associates, Inc. is proud to partner with PTI who has a long history of helping companies successfully commercialize new packaging for well-known global brands.
