New expert course for users from the injection molding industry

From October 21–22, 2019, the new expert course “Injection Molding – From Mold to Molded Part” took place for the first time in Braunschweig. Over two days, the participants learned how to use 3D metrology to face typical challenges across the plastics process chain. 3D metrology supports and speeds up all phases in injection molding processes: from prototype construction and tool manufacture to first article inspection reports up to assembly and trend analyses. ATOS is an optical 3D coordinate measuring system allowing non-contact measurements of complete surfaces of prototypes, electrodes, tools and injection-molded parts regardless of the object size. 

Training content

  • Inspection of tools and molded parts for dimensional accuracy
  • Analysis of assembly situations in mold manufacture
  • Inspection of wall thicknesses, draft angles and sink marks
  • Statistical analyses
