Companies, like Synergetic Engineering, have discovered ways to be more competitive by using Direct CAD tools. Join us to hear a firsthand account of how mold makers can cut cycle time by streamlining the use of CAD data. Synergetic Engineering will share with you 10 ways (at least) they use Direct CAD tools to reduce the time it takes to make a mold. With continued pressure to decrease time to market, improve workforce productivity, or handle a larger volume of work with a shortage of labor, adding Direct CAD tools will help you overcome these challenges and be more successful. Primary topics (what the registrant will learn): • Learn how Direct CAD software tools can improve your ability to view, compare, and validate CAD data • Discover how to clearly report value-added changes to your customers—regardless of CAD file types • More easily collaborate with OEM’s
Many plastic parts are challenging to mold within tolerance on the first, second and sometimes third shot. Many factors affect the shrink and warp of the part. Because of the traditionally high cost of simulation, many shops still opt for machining the cavity to a steel safe condition, molding the part and then reworking the mold according to the deformation. In this webinar you will learn how some shops have found a cost effective means of simulation and easy modification of the mold geometry. Join us for this webinar and see how winning tool shops mold good parts at first shot! See how these shops are able to: • Utilize cost-effective CAE tools • Use Advanced Warping tools to modify geometry with a deformation compensation percentage • Use efficient toolpathing with multiple surface offset groups to minimize CAD work • Provide shorter lead times to their customers • Advertise this capability as a value added service
More sophisticated tooling technologies are always evolving. One advancement that improves efficiency and speed is the hydraulic locking core pull cylinder. By employing this method of actuating a core pull, molders can take advantage of smaller mold bases, and at the same time, reduce overall costs. This webinar will demonstrate how hydraulic locking core pull cylinders can actuate core pulls and mold slides in injection molds with much less design, machining, fitting and maintenance time than traditional slide assemblies. Primary topics (what the registrant will learn): • How do hydraulic locking core pull cylinders work? • What are the advantages of using hydraulic locking core pull cylinders compared to other methods of actuating a core pull? • What features, sizes and options are available? • Tips for installation and operation
