"Moldex3D at the 2nd Wirth Innovation Day - gratifying presence"
Back to overview
The 2nd Innovation Day from Wirth Werkzeugbau GmbH took place on September 24, 2020. According to the motto "Foam injection molding in new dimensions 2.0 - experiencing knowledge + technology live!" Mr. Werner Wirth, Managing Director of the tool specialist for foam injection molding, overmoulding and multi-component as well as sandwich & insert technology, welcomed more than 50 participants from the injection molding industry. The main focus of the technical presentations was set on thermoplastic foam injection molding.
Mr. Steffen Paul, Managing Director and SimpaTec's participant at the event was particularly pleased about the - almost universal - presence of the aspect of simulation-based process support and optimization with Moldex3D during the Innovation Day. Already in the opening contribution Werner Wirth explained very clearly how foam injection molding with negative embossing and alternating temperature control enables energy-efficient production of visible components with structured surfaces. It was shown how Moldex3D, the world's leading CAE simulation tool, was successfully used, for example, in the topics "Additive-molded mold inserts and the reduction of infill inlays and near-contour temperature control design for energy-efficient production". Further application examples were also found in the other contributions, which conveyed how efficiently and successfully the simulation tool can be used for the detailed analysis, verification and optimization of foam injection molding processes, tools and components.
Additionally, the participants were able to "experience knowledge and technology live". During the tour of the exhibition and live demonstrations in Wirth's technical center, there was plenty of opportunity to exchange experiences and discuss newly conveyed contents with injection molding and metrology specialists.
Thank you for the interesting technical contributions and the coherent event concept all covering foam injection molding. For further information about Wirth Werkzeugbau GmbH and the 2nd Wirth Innovation Day 2020 please click here.
