Moldex3D Café – Optics and Injection Molding

  • Date:Jul 28, 2021
  • Location: Online


Moldex3D will be hosting Virtual Café on July 28th that focuses on optimizing solutions for plastics industry. If you are currently looking for better ways to improve plastics part quality, then this is something you don’t want to miss!

Our Moldex3D experts will introduce how to read analysis results to spot potential defects, methods to improve them, and a case study to wrap it up. Also, feel free to join us for Hands-on Workshop, where we will guide you through molding simulation process. Some practices to help you know your way around Moldex3D software. Non-user participants will also receive a free 30-day trial.

A chance to see how awesome molding simulation can be. Register fast!
