Omni Mold needed to build a 48-cavity hot-to-cold runner system to produce a tight tolerance medical device molded component. The high cavitations and the complexity of the mold prompted Omni Mold’s engineers to contact Beaumont Technologies, Inc. (BTI) to provide mold filling and balancing solutions.
“The class was much more than I expected. Going in I was thought it would be more of a sales pitch for MeltFlipper technology. I was wrong. I now have a better understanding of polymer flow and how to use the systematic mold balance approach to help improve our molds and reduce our scrap cost. Great class, hope to attend other seminars at Beaumont.”
“I found this Beaumont course very informative. 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, in addition to discussing the differences in runner sizes and shapes.
We were building a new 16-cavity mold and needed to ensure we achieved even fill. Beaumont’s Kevin Rottinghaus convinced us that their MeltFlipper technology would deliver the results we wanted. We ran short-shot tests and all 16 parts were amazingly close to being the same size…MeltFlipper performed better than we expected.
As the owner of a small mold making shop and a toolmaker by trade, I wasn’t sure I would see much benefit from this course. But I definitely walked away with a higher appreciation of plastic mold design & engineering details, and how my mold manufacturing process can affect the process and part quality.
