Simulation and technology consulting company SimpaTec, Aachen, Germany, held its MiDay (Molding Innovation Day) on September 18, 2018, at the Stadthalle Balingen, Germany. The event was attended by more than two-hundred invited participants, and hosted a range of discussion on the latest innovations in tool and mould making, providing an extensive overview of and insights into the potential of what the company refers to as ‘future-oriented manufacturing processes’.

Commenting on the event, Christoph Hinse, SimpaTec’s General Manager, stated, “It’s just the right combination of theory and practice – subject-specific technical contributions, additional information in the exhibitor area – and enough space and scope for direct discussions and clarifications of open questions.“

“The personal contact and communication between the interested parties, exhibitors and speakers is particularly important to us,,” he continued. “Therefore, we are extremely pleased about the lively interactions which took place throughout the entire event. The positive feedback from the circle of attendees shows us that our MiDay Germany 2018 offered exactly the right balance between content, discussion and exchange of information on the subject of innovative tool making.”

A broad range of information and suggestions on how to practically master everyday professional challenges was offered during the event. The lecture programme looked at both the future and current use of future-oriented technologies in tool and mould making, with a number of speakers addressing current issues facing injection moulding.

Topics covered included how to make the right decisions for optimum mould temperature control, how to optimally operate cooling and temperature control circuits, how to optimise technology and costs in tool design, and the benefits of simulation analysis and tool evaluation.

The accompanying exhibition area saw a number of key companies in the industry present their latest technology and solutions, while giving attendees the opportunity to engage in discussions related to the programme content. The next MiDay Germany will take place on September 17, 2019, and will again be held at the Stadthalle Balingen.
