MMT Chats: The Science of Moldmaking, Part 1
MoldMaking Technology Editorial Director Christina Fuges chats with Don Smith, North American Senior Tooling Engineer for Scholle IPN in Northlake, Illinois about the future and science of moldmaking.
Don Smith has a long history with moldmaking, which has resulted in a passion for engineering and data. In Part 1 of this two-part MMT Chat, I get to the bottom of his work experience and why he believes that data is so important to the future of mold manufacturing—automation into the tool, Tooling 4.0; and engineering not just designing a mold.
A look at how taking the time and data to analyze a mold problem will help you repair it right—and permanently—the first time.
Software suppliers are working diligently to provide moldmakers with relevant but easy-to-use solutions that speed processes and lower costs.
The right costing software can help to improve mold quoting and production.
