Supporting The 1st Conference of It’s Kind
Auburn, NY Currier Plastics’ Sriraj Patel and Steve Faes are co-chair and presenter at the 1st annual injection molding technical conference of Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) to be held in August 2017 in Oak Brook, Illinois.
Patel, Director of Research and Development at Currier since 2015, is the co-chair for the Precision Molding Machinery & Process Control session. Faes, Senior Product Development Engineer at Currier Plastics for the past three and a half years, is one of the featured presenters. Faes presentation will be on the benefits of using simulation results for plastic injection molded part design. Faes has proven that in the instance of a flip top snap cap, utilizing the simulation results made it possible to achieve a more ergonomic lift open force and to improve the operation of the energy in the hinge. The goal is to show how the results can be used by engineers and designers to quickly optimize their designs to achieve desired results.
“Through research and development we continuously strive to vertically grow by increasing our value-added services,” adds Ron Ringleben, VP of Business Development at the custom molder. “By exploring and adapting new technology, we enable ourselves to attract new business models with a goal of maximizing opportunities and recognizing and reducing risks for our healthcare partners – a win-win for everyone.”
