SpotOn – "Gas-Assisted Injection Molding (GAIM)"


Start of the event:
16:00 pm (CEST, Berlin, Germany)
10:00 am (EDT, North Carolina, US)
09:00 pm (ICT, Bangkok, Thailand)

You are cordially invited to take a look at our free event series SpotOn. Today's focus is on the subject of "Gas-assisted injection molding technology (GAIM)".

During this manufacturing process, gas displaces melt and unneeded material is removed from the component. This targeted formation of cavities and the - with almost no loss - pressure from the inside are resulting in a higher product quality and a comparable rigidity by guaranteeing considerable material savings at the same time. In addition to material savings and weight reductions, shorter cycle times have an economic effect, too. The process does not only extend to conventional thermoplastic materials, but is used for almost all molding compounds with swelling flow behavior, including a large number of thermosets and elastomers, too.

In this SpotOn you will learn more about the latest developments and technical possibilities of GAIM methods, as well as how the dynamics of fluid injection technology can be optimized using simulation technology.

We look forward to our guest speaker Dieter Kremer, Wittmann-Battenfeld GmbH & Co. KG, who provides us a practical insight into the current state of the technical methods of the gas-assisted injection molding technology.

In addition, our Florian Aichberger, Sales Engineer, SimpaTec Austria, will evaluate the manufacturing process with regard to simulation-based analysis and optimization approaches. The simulation of the second phase (gas) and the resulting wall thicknesses, the distortion of the component and optimization options using factors such as entry points, channels and injection times, which can significantly simplify the component design, are presented.

The event will be moderated by Steffen Paul, Managing Director of SimpaTec. You are invited to ask questions in the chat during the entire event. We are happy to answer the most important chat questions in the discussion at the end of the SpotOn.
