Viscosity has the greatest influence on part quality, yet many overlook this factor. Most of the injection molding technology today is focused on reaction times and closed loop systems. This webinar will review the common challenges molder's face today with material flow, and what technologies will actually help with these issues, increasing your part quality and productivity. 

Primary Topics: 
• Review of common material viscosity issues molders face today 
• Overview of current closed loop control systems 
• Learn about Smart Technology available today and the benefits, including a live demo
