New Injection Simulator Mimics Entire Process

New software from Paulson Training Programs Inc., Chester, Conn., simulates the injection molding process using your choice of machine model, mold type, and material grade.

New software from Paulson Training Programs Inc., Chester, Conn., simulates the injection molding process using your choice of machine model, mold type, and material grade. SimTech 2003 software differs significantly from Paulson's older Skillbuilder injection machine simulator: Skillbuilder limited users to a choice of three machine types, four mold configurations, and a half-dozen materials. With Sim­Tech, users can run simulations of any mold, machine, or material combination in their shop:or they can even run a simulation of a new mold that hasn't arrived in the plant. Users can vary molding conditions and gate or runner dimensions in the simulated environment for process optimization, troubleshooting, or training purposes. The standard system can store 20 mold, machine, and material choices, which Paulson will preload for each customer.
