Plastics might replace metals in various applications, but in injection molding those parts require steel-based tools to be created, putting molds, and metal, at the center of the process.

Plastics might replace metals in various applications, but in injection molding those parts require steel-based tools to be created, putting molds, and metal, at the center of the process.

 

At Molding 2016 (March 29-31; New Orleans) maintenance, hot runners (advanced monitoring and sequential valve-gating), 3D scanning, spot cooling, multicomponent mold transfer, tungsten carbide core pins and the economics of offshore tooling are all on tap in a special Tooling-focused session.

 

Speakers in the session hail from molders, moldmakers, hot runner suppliers, component suppliers and an inspection firm, giving attendees a broad perspective from across the tooling supply chain with presentations that touch on all segments of a tool’s life from and design and operation to maintenance and inspection.
