If you think there isnât time for fun during the workday, the folks at purging compound manufacturer Novachem beg to differ. They want to entertain as well as educate, and have developed an interactive online game for molders to remind themselves of the inefficiency of resin buildup.
From the cockpit of a spaceship, players shoot resin residuals from screws and barrel walls. There are consequences if the residue isnât removed quickly enough; punishments include a period of downtime, during which the player must remain inactive. To reload your ammo, move your spaceship to catch falling buckets of Novachemâs InstaPurge.
As you shoot the resin, the game gives practical advice, such as âavoid degradation,â âreduce teardown,â âreduce transition scrap,â and âdecrease teardown.â
For the player to receive product information, he or she can press the âbossâ button, which brings up a data sheet containing details on purging and Novachemâs product line.
When your time is up, the screen will either read, âYouâve been purged,â or tell you that youâve won. If you have been purged, donât fret; thereâs a link at the bottom that prompts you to play again. And destroying the evil resin merits a reward: Novachem is giving away a free hat to those who win. Wishing you could play? Go to www.leverage-marketing.com/instaeliminator.
