SpotOn – “Weld lines“

Spot Ons

You are welcome to take a look at our free SPOT ON event series. Today's focus is set on "Weld lines".

A fast and reliable identification of weak points in the component enables the designer to initiate suitable countermeasures in an early development phase of the component or the tool layout. Two common cosmetic surface defects that often occur are weld line and air traps. The elimination of resulting component defects often causes a large part of the additional costs due to iterations in product, tool and process optimization.

In this Spot On you will learn how to optimize the filling process, the venting and the process conditions so that weld lines will not appear in the first place.

We are very much looking forward to our guest speaker >> Mr. Andreas Filler, HotSet GmbH, who will give us a practical insight into the current state of technical methods and procedures to avoid possible causes for component defects and Dr. Vito Leo, BIMS seminars srl, who has more than 30 years’ experience in the plastics industry and who will hold his presentation titled Visco-elasticity and its role in weld-line strength".

Additionally, our Mr. Steffen Paul, Managing Director of SimpaTec, will demonstrate the simulation based analysis and optimization approach to avoid component defects. The event will be moderated by Mr. Marc Kurz, Managing Director of SimpaTec. You are welcome to ask questions during the entire session via using the chat function. We will be happy to answer the most important chat questions in the discussion round at the end of the Spot On.

Broaden your horizon and find out about the latest developments regarding weld lines.
