Case Study: Simulation Prediction vs. Actual

With technology today, there are very few reasons we shouldn’t be able to predict with some degree of accuracy the outcome of nearly anything. For injection molded parts, we want to get an inside look before we ever cut steel. Why? Let’s face it, once the steel chips...

Revalidation Using Machine Independent Data

Submitted by: Rod Groleau, Chairman & CEO As the injection molding industry continues to evolve in the face of issues such as globalization, downsizing and short run quotas, customer demands are increasing for both the mold builder and molder. More and more...

Troubleshooting Processes Using Cavity Pressure Sensors

Troubleshooting can take on many meanings for injection molders. All too often they find themselves running to a machine, turning knobs and pushing buttons, hoping with fingers crossed that the next parts out of the mold will be better than the last. Obviously, this...

Containment of Abnormal Parts Using Cavity Pressure

In today’s global economy absolute quality to the customer is the world standard for any successful molder. While all molders talk about world class Lean Manufacturing and total quality, the fact is that most are still attempting to “sample and sort” their way to...
