MAY SimTech™ Challenge Wrap Up
For May, we went a little easy on you, featuring a low difficulty challenge. So it was no big surprise to see the usual molding rock stars line the winning ranks and our two-time molding champion Johnny Ash taking first place. Following close behind was Alexandru Crai from OMS Besser Group for second and Vomir Marius from Draexlmaier in third. Interesting to note, the difference between our 1st and 10th place person was only 1.22%. Congratulations winners and all who participated! Well done.

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.
