Northville, MI – September 01, 2013 – CoreTech System (Moldex3D) Co., Ltd., the “True 3D”injection molding CAE simulation solution innovator”, is pleased to announce a $2 million worth of Moldex3D injection Molding Simulation Software donation to University of Akron. It will be used by The Akron Polymer Training Center, the training division of the College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering at University of Akron, to provide education and training for students and professionals in injection molding simulation technology.
“It is known that The Akron Polymer Training Center, the nation’s No. 2 polymer science program, offers courses and trainings designed to enhance on-the-job effectiveness for all professionals working in the polymer field and strives to be the world’s leading provider of effective workforce development and training. As the world’s largest independent injection molding simulation software provider, we believe it is our responsibility to assist University of Akron in keeping up with the goal. We are pleased for the opportunity to partner with University of Akron to bring students more practical industrial hands-on computer aided engineering experiences and help them stay on the cutting edge of the technology,” said Prabhakar Vallury, Vice President of Moldex3D Northern America.
“Moldex3D, using 3D computational technology, will give students hands-on experience in the simulation of the flow of polymer materials into complicated mold cavities, which will help local industry,” says Dr. Mukerrem Cakmak, Harold A. Morton chair and distinguished professor of polymer engineering. “Plastic injection molding is used in various industries, including automotive, electronics, medical, electro-optical, and consumer products. The behavior of polymers in the melt state — or “the batter” — depends upon a number of factors, including the pressure, temperature, velocity and viscosity of the injected material, adding that the difference between polymers can be as drastic as that between lava and water. We are excited to have this unique opportunity to cooperate with CoreTech System (Moldex3D) to educate polymer engineering students and professionals with the latest and advanced simulation technology.”
The donation ceremony was held at “Advanced Processes Innovation Day: Molding Innovation”, a one-day seminar on August 8th at the National Polymer Innovation Center, University of Akron and focuses on the technologies and innovations that are changing the face of manufacturing.
