MoldTrax and the AIM Institute Team Up for New Conference

The first Mold Performance Technology Conference will address key issues in mold performance and efficiency in injection molds.  

MoldTrax and Beaumont Technologies, Inc.’s American Injection Molding (AIM) Institute are excited to announce a new conference for the injection molding industry. The Mold Performance Technology Conference will bring processing and tooling experts together to explore strategies to optimize mold performance and to maintain efficiency on many different types of injection molds that make products for all industries.

Mold designers, tooling and process engineers, managers, supervisors, repair technicians and molders will all benefit from this 3.5-day event that will take place November 7–10 at the MoldTrax Maintenance Training Center in Ashland, Ohio.

This collaboration came out of a philosophy shared by MoldTrax and AIM, and their leaders Steve Johnson and John Beaumont. Understanding both product defect positions and the shear generated by plastic flow within a mold is critical to efficiently producing quality parts on time. This is the goal of every molder—and a MoldTrax mantra. Attendees of this conference will gain an increased awareness of how these molding disciplines affect each other and ultimately the plastic part so they can better institute proactive strategies to reduce quality concerns and more efficiently troubleshoot performance issues.

Integrated break-out sessions will allow attendees to view the latest technology in mold cleaning and repair equipment in a world-class mold maintenance facility. Demonstrations and discussions with representatives from Blue-Wave Ultrasonics, Poly-Blast Plastic Media Blasting, FastHeat Controllers, Alliance Laser Sales and Specialties, Polymer Cleaning Technology, Gesswein, Beaumont Technologies and more bring even more value to the program.

Classes start at 8:00 a.m. and end at 4:00 p.m. each day. A full lunch will be provided, with evening activities that include dinner at a local resort and a private, guided tour through the famous Mansfield Reformatory where the movie Shawshank Redemption was filmed.

Only 24 are seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. To register, please visit www.aim.institute/moldperformanceconference.
