MMT Chat: 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.
It has become more essential to know exactly what is going on in your business—not last year, not even last month—but at this very moment.
A new wave of job shop management system tools can help ensure more efficient mold manufacture.
A practical look at what to consider when purchasing client/server inventory management software and how to implement such a program, as well as why and how it can benefit mold manufacturing operations.
