March 4, 2010
A new, downloadable software program is intended to help users develop the shape of injection molding runners and gates.

A new, downloadable software program is intended to help users develop the shape of injection molding runners and gates. An improved user interface requires fewer clicks and produces gating designs faster. Users can calculate tangential gate geometries and draw gates and runners directly over a casting image. In addition, uses can export gate dimensions in comma-delimited files and import them directly into Excel and solid modeling programs. Purchase the software or download a 30 day free trial
