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
Additive Manufacturing (AM) is the process of joining materials to make objects from 3D model data, usually layer upon layer, as opposed to subtractive manufacturing technologies. Many AM applications extend beyond mere prototyping into many applicable fields of manufacturing. AM is an ideal solution when approaching injection molding and other High Temp Applications in terms of affordability, speed, efficiency, and quality. With some of the most technologically-advanced materials and equipment in the world, Objet provides a High Temperature (RGD525) and ABS-Like (RGD5160-DM) material which we will show are capable of post processed temperatures of 200 F and 400 F respectively.
When it comes to innovative use of technology and information, Industrial Mold & Machine (Twinsburg, Ohio) has become a poster child that many tool shops are now trying to emulate. Join this case study webinar and find out how Industrial Mold is able to: • Improve shop floor productivity with real-time access to information • Eliminate paper-clogged process bottlenecks that slow down production • Enhance communication and collaboration throughout the company • Bring employees and apprentices up-to-speed with knowledge at their fingertips • Utilize social networking to bridge the divide between office and shop floor workers • Elevate productivity, quality, and responsiveness to customers
