9:05 AM – 9:35 AM Advancements in ease of robot programming for Injection molding machine

How easy can it be to program your robots? Today’s new technology allows more advance robot programs by simply answering a few questions.
Learn how simple programming Injection molding robots can be and how using robots designed for injection molding can ensure ease of use and faster production times.
9:35 AM – 10:05 AM How smart technology can help with your material viscosity changes and improve your productivity  (HIQ)

Viscosity has the greatest influence on part quality, yet many overlook this factor. Most of the injection molding technology today is focused on reaction times and closed loop systems.  This webinar will review the common challenges molder’s face today with material flow, closing of the check ring and what technologies will actually help with these issues, increasing your part quality and productivity.
10:05 AM – 10:20 AM Break  
10:20 AM – 10:50 AM Moldex3D Warpage Analysis and Visualization Techniques Moldex3D
10:50 AM – 11:20 AM Sustainability in the 21st Center- Blenders & Granulators

With the rising cost and shortage of raw materials and tighter demands for product consistency, many processors struggle with blending their resin recipes. Accurately reintroducing regrind into the final product is more important than ever, driven by environmental mandates and cost savings.
In this webinar, WITTMANN reviews how to introduce regrind to your process and important key factors that you should know.
