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.
Robert A. Beard & Associates, Inc. and Plastic Technologies, Inc. (PTI) are holding the inaugural 2014 Conformal Cooling Conference on injection molding technology for increased efficiency and profitability on Wednesday, September 17 at Automation Alley in Troy, Michigan. Fees apply. Session will begin 8:30am with Registration open at 8:00am.
The program will include:
  • Jeff Higgins, Moldflow Corporation, “The Design & Analysis of Conformal Cooling Channels”
  • Reiner Westoff, Contura MTC GmbH, “Vacuum Brazed Conformal Cooled Molds” & “Rapid Heat Rapid Cool Process”
  • Augustin Niavas, EOS GmbH, “Direct Metal Laser Sintering DMLS”
  • Doug Hepler, Polyshot, “Vacuum Brazed Hot Runner Manifolds” and “Design Guide For Conformal Cooled Molds”
  • Barry Sutherland, North Coast Industrial Imaging, “Technologies & Techniques For Troubleshooting Conformal Cooled Molds”
