Title: Getting "VR" Real with Moldmaking Training


Virtual reality has become mainstream for many industrial applications, allowing users to explore, learn and prepare for new technologies. A new innovative training initiative allows injection molding engineers to evaluate new mold designs in a virtual environment. In this virtual space, engineers can assemble and disassemble a mold to learn about its design and functionality. They can then take the mold to the machine and work through individual mold installation and processing tasks such as water hook-ups, the installation of peripheral devices, preparing the polymer material and beginning the mold set-up and process development. Kruse Molding is here to showcase how it is creating a space for engineers to learn and master these tasks in a virtual environment, giving them the skills and confidence to advance to the next level of expertise in the real world. These VR molding courses are being developed to support a molding company’s overall design and hands-on process training initiatives. The presentation will cover the evolution of training, the importance of utilizing optimization technologies (DFM, DOE), the trend towards hybrid training, and an in-depth look at the research behind the new Kruse Molding VR initiative. To make this session more interactive, there will be an opportunity for audience members to explore the VR technology.
