DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD:
Alan Rude, Two Shot Leader/ Sr. Process Engineer
“About 10 years ago, we were introduced to a patented technology called MeltFlipper® from Beaumont Technologies. Beaumont helped us understand the technology by showing us facts about plastic flow, and how it can impact the quality of plastic parts. We have experienced many of the quality issues that Beaumont showed us with other mold case studies. The quality issues were dimensional inconsistencies, under-packed and over-packed cavities, excessive tool wear, and a small process window.
We chose a new 64 cavities fastener mold to incorporate the MeltFlipper® technology. We were looking to reduce runner volume, so we went with a hot runner to cold runner feed system. Beaumont worked with Incoe to incorporate MeltFlipper® in a special hot runner system called Opti-Flo. I consulted with Todd Bresson at Beaumont to help guide us through the process and get the total imbalance to under 3% with all 64 cavities. Beaumont was able to utilize short shot studies with their proprietary software to make minor steel safe changes to the MeltFlipper® design to optimize the runner system.
The mold was built by Precision Die & Machining. We looked at the shot counter, and we have made over 12 BILLION PARTS. Yes, BILLION! This job runs with a larger process window and more consistent part to part dimensions with less tool wear than other jobs without MeltFlipper®. We were also able to run at a faster cycle time versus other non MeltFlipper® jobs. I think it is safe to say that we made our money back on this one.”
Spencer Dahl, VP of Product, Director of Finance
“The DECKED product department has seen tremendous benefits from working with Beaumont. Their Moldflow experts have played a key role in diagnosing issues we were having with an existing tool and provided a number of suggestions on ways to get more consistent parts off the press. They’ve also been critical in helping us evaluate mold layout options for a major new product initiative and we’re confident that their guidance will help us reduce both cycle time and the number of costly mold changes we have to make. We’d spent a number of years looking for experts to help us simulate low-pressure molding processes and Beaumont are far and away the best in the business. We’re excited to continue partnering with them to bring more products to market in the future.”
Andrew Clouse, Manager: Production, Manufacturing, & Tooling
“Beaumont never ceases to improve their methods and support, and are always staying ahead of the industry. Their innovation and training helps lead Nifco America to success by combining new technology with a skilled work force. Nifco’s success has definitely been attributed to Beaumont’s excellent involvement with prompt and thorough support of our manufacturing output.”
Don Makowski, Design Engineer
“I was amazed at the amount of expertise and knowledge presented in just two days. Many myths were debunked, numerous scientific explanations for the way we should be thinking about plastic flow were given, and various real-world examples were used to show how plastic flows.”
Joshua Smith, Design Engineer
“We engaged Beaumont for a very specific issue after our tool was built. Their analysis, expertise, and recommendations on our specific process conditions greatly shortened our time to market by eliminating our usual trial and error loops based on “gut feel” and targeted the heart of the problem based on “science”.”
Russ Wolff, Business Development Manager
“Of all the training seminars that I have attended over the past 10 years, this one ranks at the top! The explanations of clamp tonnage, cooling strategies, viscosity, and key mold design components are just a few of the takeaways that will be very useful in my job function.”
Curt Corte, Senior Tooling Engineer
“I know there are several options available with regard to [Moldflow] training but I chose Beaumont because of their practical use and understanding of polymer flow characteristics. The trip across the country was well worth the effort. Jennifer Schmidt did an outstanding job providing classroom instruction that included detailed explanations, one-on-one guidance for those difficult questions and interjected her “real world” experiences that were invaluable in understanding and operating the software to its maximum potential. I can’t say enough good about this training!”
