The 2019 ARPM State of the Rubber Industry Report found that 98 percent of rubber companies reported major challenges in workforce development, including finding talent, training their workforce and retaining employees. Manufacturers have also reported that other challenges keeping them up at night included: keeping up with technology, continuous improvement efforts, and finances.

ARPM has created the Innovation Symposium to provide some answers to these challenges for member companies. This day-long symposium is an opportunity to discover innovative solutions to some of the industry’s key issues, unite expertise from across the industry and provide paradigm-shifting solutions to advance you in your journey toward manufacturing excellence.

This event will offer engaging keynotes, interactive presentations, cutting-edge technology, innovative approaches, and peer-to-peer networking roundtables.

Attendees will learn how current trends impact issues and how to leverage what they learned when they return home.

Virtual Elastomer Molding Process and Design Optimization

SIGMASOFT® Virtual Molding was developed as an innovative solution to overcome challenges for development, mold design and production in injection molding. Our approach is to consider all the components of the mold with their specific physical and thermal properties. Then, processing conditions are used, and multiple consecutive cycles are reproduced virtually, representing what happens in the molding machine during the manufacturing process. Thus, allowing users to evaluate and optimize processes and molds, increase efficiency, productivity, and part quality.

You can expect to hear more about the following topics:

  1. Optimizing design during the product development phase
  2. Optimizing your current process window to maintain robust quality
  3. Defect prevention in elastomer molding
