How does the Challenge work?
Each month, Paulson’s molding experts will devise a new molding problem for you to solve. For example, you will be challenged to mold a specific part without any defects and with the fastest cycle time. Once you’re in SimTech™, you will see the virtual control panel where you will be able to view the part, the plastic, and the machine specs in order to “mold” your part effectively. Bonus points are given, BUT if you need to access “hints,” points will be lost. Besides winning, the actual goal here is to learn.
Will I win anything?
Yes! Each month a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Prize will be awarded plus each winner will be eligible to win a $500 training credit toward a Paulson online course or seminar. Then, at the end the year, one person and their company will be picked from all the first place monthly winners for a chance to win the Grand Prize of $6,000 worth of online training from Paulson.
What is SimTech?
SimTech™ is Paulson’s most advanced, proprietary, injection molding simulation tool. It’s a powerful online engine built on decades of complex mathematical equations of plastic and process analyses that combine both molding theories and practices. All together, SimTech™ has the outstanding capability to process some 20 million calculations per simulated cycle, and check all possible simulations against possible errors. No other injection molding simulation tool is more powerful!
