Slideshow: Amerimold 2016 Preview
This annual tradeshow and technical conference addresses the business development, best practices and networking interests of the plastic injection mold manufacturing industry. Here's a small sampling of what attendees will see this year.

In Winter or Spring, iSledders Warms the Heart
I know spring has sprung, and the snow is a faint memory (at least for the majority of us), but now is as good a time as any to applaud and share some great news from iWarriors, which held its second annual iSledders Charity Snowmobile Ride in February, raising $5,500.

Common Sense Innovation and Moldmaker Collaboration
As I walked the aisles of NPE last month, taking in all the plastics-related technologies and solutions on display, two obvious trends emerged: logical innovation and moldmaker collaboration.

Snowmobiling for a Good Cause
Not only did the snow bring together some of the mold building community for a little snowmobiling, it also helped raise money for a good cause. Proceeds from this inaugural I-Sledders 2015 Charity Snowmobile Ride on February 20-22 benefit iWarriors, which provides technology and assistance for wounded service members to help with rehabilitation and recovery from physical injuries, post traumatic stress and traumatic brain injuries.

Four Companies Team Up to Produce Small, Complex Part
Mold Craft teamed up with Celanese, Sodick and LPKF at NPE2015 to mold a vented processor housing, a complex part that simulates a medical device cover, using laser direct structuring (LDS).

Early Resolution for 2015
To date, industry donations to iWarriors--a nonprofit organization founded in 2011 by Tim and Kim Bartz of Mold Craft--have helped to supply more than 260 combat wounded veterans with iPads, so they can keep in touch with friends and loved ones as they recover and rehabilitate. Today they announce the 2015 iWarriors challenge. Can you help them achieve the goal?

All According to Plan
This moldmaker influences its own destiny by staying true to itself, knowing exactly where it wants to go, and ensuring everyone in the organization understands how to get there.

“Our Molds Aren’t Perfect, They’re +/- 0.0001 Inch”
The motto of this Minnesota-based mold manufacturer of high-volume, multi-cavity and multi-mold projects for the medical, electronics, telecommunications and consumer products industries sums up why they reached the 50-year milestone, why they celebrated with the community and industry, and why they are excited about the next 50 years of innovation.

Today We Celebrate Heroes from the American Mold
So what better day than Memorial Day to give an update on iWarriors and all they've accomplished this year for our Wounded Warriors--giving so much more than iPads.

Moldmakers Making a Difference
iWarriors continues to support our troops this year with even more iPad deliveries, and here are stories recipients have shared expressing their gratitude when we are the ones who are grateful to them!

iWarriors: Moldmakers on a Mission
Our mission is to keep hospitalized marines in touch with family and friends while they undergo numerous surgeries and intensive rehabilitation.

MMT Goes West
It has been a year since I headed out to California for the one trip to which I really look forward--to escape the wintry weather here in the east and see the bright beautiful sun, blues skies and snow-capped mountains, all in 70-degree weather; oh and to attend the Plastec and MD&M West shows.

Leadtime Leader Takes on a Challenge
Can you really mold a pipette shaped part with a .015” wall x .370” long followed by a .008” wall x .080”?  How about if the molding material is PEEK?  How about 4 cavities?  Can a Cpk of 1.33 be achieved on this wall section?  These are the challenges and questions Mold Craft set out to prove the viability by partnering in flow simulation and press selection while Mold Craft designed and built a mold required for this difficult part.Although Mold Craft is typically known for their ability to design and build high cavitation production molds to produce parts that number in the hundreds of millions, Mold Craft has also received recognition for the ability to mold extremely tight tolerances on micro parts with intricate geometry that require high Cpk values.  This challenge was just that, micro parts shaped like a funnel or pipette with extreme length to wall thickness ratio.  To add to this complexity, the customer needed to use PEEK due to its high strength characteristics.Mold craft will be displaying their latest mold in the Sodick Plustech press at NPE in Orlando.  Mold Craft (booth 1295) will have the attached photographed mold operating at Sodick Plustech booth 363.Read full story here.

Mold Craft Tool Showcased Sodick Plustech’s New Micro Molding Machine
A 4-cavity mold for very small PEEK parts—a pipette “funnel tip” component for a medical customer—ran in the new Sodick Plustech LP20EH2 Micro Molding series with a 12-mm diameter plunger.
