Results of the March SimTech Challenge –
Another tough molding contest with some familiar challengers earning scores but it was Joey Hall from MCM that earned the First Place Win! He scored 117.913 for the top prize and adds a coveted Paulson T-shirt to the hat he won last month as well as winning an additional $200 worth of training credits. This gives him an enviable total of $500 worth of training credits he can put toward any ProMolder class or online interactive lessons. A big hearty applause to Mr. Hall!
Our Reigning Molding Champ Johnny Ash, from Preformed Line Products, came in second place, (117.873) however, because he won First Place last month he isn’t eligible for monthly prizes, BUT will accumulate points toward eligibility for the Grand Prize to be awarded at the end of the year. This means our official second prize winner is Luke Snyder from Windsor Mold Group.

- First Place: 117.913 – Joey Hall, MCM, wins a Simtech™ hat and t-shirt & $500 training credits

Having Fun with these 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.
