Moldex3D Announced the Winners of 2013 Moldex3D Global Innovation Talent Award Contest

on 12/16/2013

Dec. 16, 2013-Hsinchu, Taiwan- The 2013 Moldex3D Global Innovation Talent Award has drawn to its exciting conclusion today. For a total of two months, the winning entries in the Business category and Student category were carefully reviewed and selected from 38 finalists. Finalists were chosen from a group of talented engineers and students coming from different countries.

The first place prize in the Business category went to Sheng-Luen Ding, the Principal Engineer from Lite-On Technology. He has won the contest for two years in a row exhibiting outstanding skills and dedication to employing Moldex3D CAE simulation technology. His winning project has successfully identified design problems of bearing housings and verified the modifications needed to achieve the required roundness. The top prize in the Student category was awarded to students from Taiwan University of Science and Technology. Their entry showcased how CAE tools can help promote the green energy trend. This can enhance the concentration efficiency of prism array lenses with injection compression molding simulation capabilities. Winning projects from India, Turkey, Singapore, the USA and other countries also did a good job demonstrating Moldex3D as an effective tool for design verification and optimization.

The Moldex3D Innovation Talent Award Contest started last year. The aim is to explore effective and innovative applications using the capabilities of Moldex3D CAE molding simulation software to address challenges that are crucial to the plastics industry today. Given the great response that the contest received from local businesses and educational institutes, CoreTech System decided to explore innovative CAE users around the world.

“This is the first time the Moldex3D Innovation Talent Award Contest went global, appealing to the worldwide audience with enthusiasm in CAE applications,” said Dr. Venny Yang, President of CoreTech System. “We were very pleased with the overall submissions and also impressed by how these participants make a significant contribution towards building better products with Moldex3D.”

Thank you to everyone who took part in the contest and stay tuned with the Molding Innovation Newsletter as each winning entry will be published in the upcoming issues.
