This allowed the attendees to experience virtual packing of worldwide innovative products.
In the beginning of the first day meeting, Dr. Venny Yang, president of Moldex3D, delivered an introductory speech of the latest technology and applications in Moldex3D. Following was the presentation from professor Pouzada-University of Minho; he shared a successful utilization of Moldex3D to predict flow, thermal and shrinkage on injection moulding with hybrid moulds.
Coming up next was the keynote speech presented by the renowned plastics industry expert Dr. Vito Leo, the founder of BIMS-Seminars. In his lecture, he shared the challenges we have faced in the field of injection molding and solutions we can use to overcome the problems.
