Husky color faded pet bottles NPE2018

News Highlights from NPE2018
Developments in Industry 4.0, multi-layer preform molding, automation, LSR processing, and PP were among the major newsbreakers at May’s show. And one film processor finalized purchases of 13 new lines.

Autonomous Optimization software automatically performs hundreds or thousands of simulations within a predetermined operating space to help find the optimum balance of desired results.

Automate Injection Molding Simulation With Autonomous Optimization
Simulation not only predicts how a mold will fill, but also provides guidance to make it fill better. The new technology of Autonomous Optimization automatically performs hundreds or thousands of simulations, testing multiple variables—gating, venting and cooling, for example—and learning which combinations help achieve objectives for injection pressure, cycle time, warpage, etc.
