The future of flow control is an automated system, integrated into the molding machine, running in the background of your mold set up. The flows and temperatures are set when the mold is qualified, and now those settings follow the mold wherever its program goes. That future is here now with the Flowcon Plus automatic flow regulator.
Manufacturing relies on tools and aids, including jigs, fixtures, templates and gauges to maintain quality and production efficiency. With 3D printing technology, you can put more complex and custom jigs and fixtures on the production floor, in less time. In this webinar you'll see how manufacturing companies are using 3D printed jigs and fixtures for increased productivity.
Purging compounds cannot hold a bubble when purging extrusion blown film lines...or can they? Surely, there aren't purges that can be used on super engineering resins above 750°F.... but, are you sure about that? Are you struggling with cleaning inorganic pigments or UV stabilizers off your tooling? Is hot runner cleaning the longest part of your changeover? If you answer yes to any of these questions, maybe we can help with this advanced purging webinar geared toward more complex purging problems.

Making hollow composite parts poses numerous challenges. Some shapes are impractical, if not impossible, to make with consistent, acceptable results using conventional tooling. FDM soluble cores offer a better alternative because they're easily removed from inside the composite shape, regardless of complexity. Watch the webinar to see how FDM soluble cores make the production of hollow composites easier, with greater design freedom.
Linear robots have made some pretty impressive advancement’s over the past 30 years, including design and performance that can really give a molder a huge Return on Investment. Tom Schaffner, with over 25 years of robot and automation experience, will highlight in this webinar the common issues molders face with older robots, and the benefits of this new technology. He will also review the tools that you could use to justify a new robot purchase.
Learn how 3D printed molds can cut turnaround time for your injection molded (IM) prototypes. We will discuss when 3D printed molds are a best fit, material selection and customer stories, as well as process limitations and tips for successful molding.
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) and PolyJet are distinctly different, yet they have much in common. To help you understand which 3D printing technology best meets your needs, Fred Fischer, director and former applications engineer for Stratasys, will share his insights on FDM and PolyJet. He will cover operations, output qualities and material offerings.
