Results of the JULY SimTech™ Challenge –
First Place Goes to Luke Snyder for the JULY SimTech™ Injection Molding Challenge. Way to go Luke!
JULY SimTech™ Challenge Wrap Up
The JULY Challenge was a real stumper for many of you, even still, the top competitors were neck and neck and demonstrated impressive skill. **For JULY, our Top Injection Molder title goes to Luke Snyder! No easy task. Congratulations. Again, anyone who achieved a score and a spot on the Leaderboard with this high-difficulty challenge should be congratulated. Hats off to you! Well done!
**Correction Note: An earlier version and email reported that Luke Snyder won the Top Injection Molder title two months in a row. This is not correct. He won the Top Injection Molder title for July only. In June he did win First Place for prizes but not for top Molder. Last month, Alexandru Crai was the Top Injection Molding Challenger. ***

*Winners & Prizes Explained
You’ll note our TOP MOLDERS and PRIZE winners for the month are different. Why? In order to give everyone an opportunity to win a prize and keep things fair, we’re limiting the monthly prize wins. Once you achieve FIRST PLACE, you cannot claim another monthly prize again for the year. If you won SECOND or THIRD PLACE, you can still work your way up to FIRST and claim the top spot. If you’re not eligible to win the monthly prizes again, it doesn’t mean you can’t compete. You can still accumulate points to win the GRAND PRIZE of $6,000 worth of training from Paulson to be announced at the end of the year. So keep participating!

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.
