Title: A Multi-Faceted Approach to Sustainability in Moldmaking: Mold Steel, Mold Building and Molding

Description:

Suppliers to the molding industry and the molding process must be developed for long-term viability. It’s time to look for sustainable development opportunities - in steel making, mold building and molding – to reduce carbon emissions. This presentation will explore the approaches being developed at a tool steel producer for fossil-free production and reduced fossil footprint of the mold steel in distribution by 2030. Come to learn how one tool steel provider conducted studies to identify indirect greenhouse gas emissions in the upstream supply chain of its purchased materials, direct emissions from its processes and the production of tool steels, and downstream on the treatment of waste and wastewater. Learn what activities they focused on first to have the most significant effect, and in what direction they are working to develop more sustainable tool steels that meet customer demands. The session will continue with iMFLUX looking at sustainable mold manufacturing – how the supply chain is evaluated and how the mold build process continues to be sustainable. Learn about recycling initiatives, zero waste to landfill, employee engagement and more during the mold build process. Finally, the presenters will explore how injection molding technologies can further ensure a lower carbon footprint for the life of the mold.
