UL AMCC Visit
After my story with UL AMCC on often-overlooked safety concerns, I was in the area and able to stop by for a quick tour.
Director of Educational Programming Ed Tackett and GM Paul Bates of UL AMCC welcomed me into the center to show me around the training facility and talk a little shop. David Virgin of Kinetic Filtration also stopped by, so I was able to get an update on his unit that connects to the wet separator and sequesters the metal powders from the waste stream.

While both hot runner and cold runner systems have their benefits, for design flexibility as well as reduced cycle times and costs, hot runner systems will probably be the better choice.
