This month we uncover a secret to improving sequential molding by looking at large injection-molded parts and how a servo-driven valve gate system can improve surface finish and part performance. We examine the importance of considering the elements of the entire tooling assembly (including the tool, holder and holder components) to optimize productivity. And, we break down how to drive cost out of the value chain by revealing the results of a recent study on cost challenges among the automotive tooling supply chain and recommendations for driving profitable growth.

Also in this issue, we profile Legacy Precision Molds, share PTI Engineered Plastics' success story with CimatronE CAM software, examine proper mold repair workflow, take a look at the final clause revisions of ISO 9001 2015,  review the basics of state tax nexus, explain trends in the appliance and medical markets, share how hot runner controllers can provide mold data to keep your process going and highlight surface treatment technology in our Product Focus section.
