New Runnerless LSR Molding Gives Thermoplastic a Run for the Money
May 24, 2023 at 11:00AM ET
Husky Technologies

This webinar presents runnerless injection molding for Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) to reduce waste, reduce costs, and maximize production efficiencies. It’s important because LSR applications are gaining popularity among injection molders serving medical, automotive, and other tech-oriented customers.

Attend to learn ways to overcome the traditional challenges of this material’s viscosity characteristics and unique chemistry. For example, where thermoplastic injection molding accomplishes runnerless molding with a "hot runner," LSR injection molders accomplish the same goal with a "cold deck."

Reconsidering Metal 3D Printing for Tooling: New Method Unveiled
May 10, 2023 at 2:00PM ET

Metal 3D printing once presented itself as a promising solution for tool-making, but early attempts fell short. Meanwhile, traditional methods remain time-consuming, expensive, and require extremely skilled labor to produce. This webinar reviews the challenges of both traditional and metal 3D toolmaking and presents an innovative metal-printing solution specifically for production of injection mold tooling. Presenters from Mantle will give background on the challenges, present the technology, and discuss real-world stories of injection molders, OEMS, and tool shops now using it.

How front-end simulation alleviates the challenges of plastic injection mold design
Available On Demand
Maya HTT

Interviews of more than 40 molders and mold makers has revealed three key findings about the plastic injection mold design process: 1) Few companies commit to cycle time targets; 2) Part quality always trumps the cost of the mold; and 3) Mold cooling designs are often overly conservative. This webinar will discuss a solution: using front-end simulation. It enables mold designers and tooling managers to minimize design iterations, deliver molds that achieve part quality at lower cost, and help you justify design decisions with quantitative, visual simulation data.
