Missed the SpotOn? Grab your 2nd chance now!

High-quality SpotOn! 2nd time around!
Admittedly, we ran a bit out of time during the German edition of the SpotOn "Aufs Material komms an?" last Thursday (Feb. 17, 2022, 11 a.m.). We are all the more pleased that the majority of the participants stayed until the end. This shows the topic was of utmost of interest!!! If you missed this SpotOn - this week there's a 2nd chance. On Thursday, Feb. 24, 2022, at 4 p.m., the Englishspeaking version will start. You should not miss it! It's worth while!

Let's go! Register now!
It is no secret - the material used is often the cause of unexpected component behavior, abnormalities in the production process or critical areas in the component. In the correct characterization of material properties lies potential for a reliable basis to make important decisions, to avoid possible change loops in the tool or component design, ultimately to save additional costs.

Be inspired by experienced material experts. Mr. Anton Sageder, simulation expert at Borealis Polyolefine GmbH, will open the SpotOn with his technical presentation "Shrinkage and warpage prediction - the material matters?! He has the opinion that "Good shrinkage and warpage predictions bring many advantages such as cost and time savings, better quality. ... However, more precise knowledge of the quality of the material data used is required -  adjustments might be necessary. The routine shown in the SpotON is intended to help here ..." Ms. Nina Krempl and Dr. Ivica Duretek, both working at the Montanuniversität Leoben, will present current news and expertise on the influence of pressure-dependent material data in injection molding simulation. Ms. Krempl is certain that it's all about the material, because "Injection molding simulation is a numerical calculation method based on material models and measured material data, amongst others." Dr. Duretek also confirms your statement: "The quality of the simulation results depends, among other things, strongly on the quality of the material data - 'Garbage In, Garbage Out'." In addition, participants of the Englishspeaking SpotOn can expect a special treat __ Dr. Vito Leo, plasticsYOU, will contribute a scientifically sound presentation about the influence of shear stresses in injection molding. The importance of the material or a reliable material characterization for 3D CAE simulation calculations will be the focus of the technical paper by Cristoph Hinse, Managing Director of SimpaTec. Our moderator __ Mr. Florian Aichberger, will be available as usual, after a few introductory sentences throughout the event for questions in the chat. In addition, the most important chat questions will be put up for discussion at the end of the SpotOn and answered by the speakers.

Broaden your horizon! Now!!
Convince yourself "Of the importance of the material"!

By the way, the topic of our next SpotOn topic is already fixed😉 ... and it's so HUGE that we're making a SpotOn XXL out of it ... You're already cordially invited to register for our SpotOn's XXL "Toolmaking - from the idea to the final product" on March 24 (German version) and March 31, 2022 (SpotOn in English).
