Results of the APRIL SimTech™ Challenge 

First Place Goes to Eric East from Impact Molding for the APRIL 2021 SimTech™ Injection Molding Challenge.

Congratulations Eric!

APRIL SimTech™ Challenge Wrap Up

Out of the gate, April’s challenge was rated “High Difficulty” but that didn’t seem to phase two competitors from Impact Molding, Eric East, this month’s Top Molder, and Doug Burkhead rounding second. Both managed to beat our reigning overall champ Johnny Ash! An incredible feat in its own right. But Mr. Ash just may have the winning strategy called “consistency”. He placed in the top three last month as well. Competitors may want to make note of that. For this month, we’re featuring Eric East’s winning set-up so you can get an idea of its difficulty. Interesting to note, the top 10 places differ by 1.2%, the top 20 places differ by 2.1%, and the top 30 places differ by 4.6%. Well done everyone, this was tough. Congratulations to our winners and all who participated.

  • 1st  place goes to Eric East from Impact Molding.
  • 2nd place – Doug Burkhead from Impact Molding
  • 3rd place – Johnny Ash from Preformed Line Products

For this month, we’re featuring first place winner Eric East’s set-up. Check it out.

Having Fun with our Competitions?

Imagine the team of skilled molders you could create if SimTech was in your plant 24-7? Your employees could be improving their molding expertise in a safe, low-cost environment, building critical thinking and troubleshooting skills. And you can stage your own friendly in-house competitions.  It’s proven, molding simulation is the best and most cost-effective way to become a better molder. You don’t want your employees making their mistakes or trying new techniques on the production floor at an actual machine—now that’s a costly way to learn. The simulation of complex processes is quickly becoming the gold standard of skill development. SimTech is the answer for injection molding.

Here’s just a few of the applications you can employ with SimTech:

Hiring Qualified Employees – Before hiring a potential employee, test their knowledge and skills with problem solving exercises in Simtech.

Technician Promotion – Give your candidates for promotion a test before you make that decision.

In-plant Competitions to promote learning and discussion – Have your own competitions amongst your team. Have a discussion on what process settings work and why.
