Injection speed and overall cycle time are often the focus for molders pursuing optimized processes, but for truly efficient production, molders should consider how and in what state material arrives at the machine.

Injection speed and overall cycle time are often the focus for molders pursuing optimized processes, but for truly efficient production, molders should consider how and in what state material arrives at the machine.

 

Underlining the importance of what happens to resin before it hits the hopper, Molding 2016 (March 29-31, New Orleans) features a full session dedicated to material drying, blending and handling, indicating the importance of drying and delivering material in the injection molding process.

 

Minimizing costs, optimizing handling, matching material handling to the application, 21st century machine communication, closed loop software to fool proof recipes and working with difficult-to-convey resins are among the topics to be tackled in the Material Drying/Blending/Handling session at the Molding 2016 Conference & Exhibition.

 

An industry consultant and various product and process experts from industry-leading material drying and conveying equipment suppliers will be among the presenters representing market leaders like Conair, Novatec, and Universal Dynamics among others.

 

Check out the complete session below and remember to register by March 3 to save on your own (or if you come with coworkers) colleagues’ registration.
