SEPTEMBER SimTech™ Challenge Wrap Up

Another round of Paulson’s high-powered SimTech Injection Molding Challenges has concluded with a record number of participants, and we’re happy to announce the September winners. Our top Molder this month goes out to Joey Hall of MCM! Congratulations Joey! Not far behind him is, Francisco Rafael of Infinite Electronics for second, and coming in 3rd is Luke Snyder of Windsor Mold Group, a former monthly Top Molder!

Well done everyone. The competition this round was fierce. Only 1094 parts separated the First Place winner from the 30th Place challenger. That’s a tiny margin considering a competition consisting of around 25,000 parts.

Francisco is a new winner and will receive the top monthly prize of $500 of Paulson Credit towards any Paulson product. Having maxed out their eligibility for prizes for the year, Joey and Luke can still earn points towards the Grand Prize of $6,000 worth of training from Paulson!  (They’ve each won all three prize categories this year so far.)

Here’s the winning breakdown:

**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.
