HSINCHU, Taiwan, Sep 30, 2016 – CoreTech System (Moldex3D), the global leading provider of plastic injection molding simulation solutions, today announced the winners of the 4th Global Innovation Talent Award under the theme of “Tell Us Your #Moldex3DStory.” This global competition recognizes Moldex3D customers that best demonstrate Moldex3D solutions’ values and offerings to the overall manufacturing process and outcome.
“The role of mold filling simulation in injection molding process is nothing short of a doctor’s role,” said Andy Chen, tooling department engineer at Foxlink Image Technology; “Moldex3D enables mold designers to correctly diagnose potential molding problems so as to implement the right solutions.” His team was selected as the Global Grand Prize winner for sharing the story about applying Moldex3D simulation solutions in the development process of four scanner components, in which Moldex3D helped predict potential short shots in a scanner cover, and guided Foxlink to identify fiber orientation as the leading cause of the warpage in an existing mold so as to implement appropriate countermeasure. This story has demonstrated the power of virtual simulation to provide not only analysis data but actionable insights to ensure the best production outcomes. Other regional winning entries also showcased successful deployment of Moldex3D solutions to tackle complex moldmaking challenges, ranging from solving flow marks in sport watch straps to preventing core shift during the manufacture of a screwdriver handle.
“Our customers’ success has always been the main driving force behind Moldex3D’s continuous innovations and breakthroughs,” said RY Chang, CEO of CoreTech System (Moldex3D). “We are excited and proud to see that the value of Moldex3D simulation has been reflected in the success of our customers, and we are looking forward to working with our customers to elevate our simulation capabilities to the next level.”
