SLIDESHOW: Technology Tuesday, From 3D Printing to Mold Cleaning
MMT offers technical content in a variety of formats, including webinars. Here is a quick overview of some archived webinars that cover mold engineering, building and maintenance.

Moldflow plastic injection molding simulation

Amerimold 2017: Plastics Exhibitors Promoted Products, Too
Amerimold had it all this year—or should I say it had MORE than ever before. While metalworking tools, materials and systems reigned supreme, the plastics side of the equation was also well represented.

Alliance laser machines

Technology Tuesday: Hot Runners and Mold Components
This week’s Tech Tuesday blog brings readers a review of several products announced during the last few weeks, namely hot runner and mold componentry.

Hasco 711 guide bush

Shoulderless Guide Bush Can be Axially Secured
Hasco’s Z11 guide bush has no shoulder, making is suitable for use when there is no supplementary mold plate for axially securing the bush or if the plate in which the bush sits makes an additional demolding movement, as in the case of molds with stripper plates, for example.

Hasco Z190 guide jaw

Flat Guide Jaw Boosts Process Reliability
Used in combination with the Z18 guide block, Hasco’s Z190 guide jaw is designed to precisely guide and center tools, resulting in high reliability in injection molding processes.

Hasco SEED

Planting the "Seed"
Last week I shared my observations during a facility tour of mold component supplier Hasco at the K show. One highlight was its Learning Center SEED apprenticeship program, so I wanted to dig a little deeper with the instructor and three apprentices to share how the program works.


SLIDEHOW: Process Automation and Planning Strategies
I sometimes forget that many technology suppliers to the moldmaking industry are also manufacturers that use many of the same products and equipment that you do, while facing similar challenges. For example, last month during the K Show in Germany I had the opportunity to visit Hasco’s corporate headquarters in Ludenscheid.
