Paulson Names 2021 SimTech Injection Molding Champion.

The Big Reveal. Who is the 2021 SimTech™ Injection Molding Champion?

We’re pleased to announce that Alexandru Crai, of OMS Besser Group, is Paulson’s 2021 Top Injection Molder! Congratulations Alexandru. You are the new reigning Champ!

Alexandru Crai successfully grabbed the top title from two-year champ Johnny Ash (Preformed Line Products). But the two were neck and neck with Mr. Crai ultimately emerging as the victor with 780 earned points. Again “consistency” was at play here. It’s the secret ingredient to winning. Mr. Crai consistently earned points in each monthly challenge and had five first place finishes. Mr. Ash was close behind with 765 earned points and two first place finishes and consistently placing in one of the top three spots every month. It goes to say that being consistent pays off and earns the win. Most companies would agree that having a consistent top performer is a prized employee indeed. It’s clear that SimTech is the perfect tool for individuals to practice being consistent and being their company’s top performer. Which in the end is what truly matters on the plant floor.

Congratulations to all who participated in the challenges! You all showed impressive molding skill. All the 2021 monthly challenges truly tested your molding metal (plastic) and required determined focus. We’re pleased to say, based on the data from SimTech’s tracking ability, folks who participated showed real skill, the plastics industry has some incredible injection molders out there.

You should all feel proud of your molding abilities. But don’t rest on your laurels. Get ready for 2022! We’ll be releasing details for this year’s SimTech Injection Molding Challenge soon. In the meantime, keep practicing and stay well. And remember, the more you practice, the more you strengthen your skill, and the better you will become at processing and solving any processing problems that come your way. #BeSkillsReady

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.
