INTRA e.V. is proud to win of the Georg-Menges-Award

On February 28, the prestigious Georg-Menges-Award was granted during the 29th IKV Colloquium, held at the Eurogress Aachen..

Dr. Erwin Baur, Managing Director of M-Base, received the award on behalf of all INTRA members. The award was handed over by Professor Schmachtenberg, Rector of RWTH Aachen University, Professor Hopmann, Director of the Institute for Plastics Processing (IKV) and Dr. Ing. Müller, chairman of the IKV Association of Sponsors.

Since 1999, the Georg-Menges-Award has been granted to an outstanding personality or designated group, which achieved an excellent reputation in the implementation of knowledge from research and development in the interplay between business and science.

For us as a founding member it is a great honor to have received this award!

The goal of INTRA e.V, Interest Group of Innovative Enterprises for Plastics Engineering in the Aachen Region in Germany, is to promote plastics technology innovations and networking between companies.

The INTRA members, spin-off founders themselves, would like to expressly encourage and support young graduates to implement the know-how gained during their studies in their own start-ups.



When every loop counts - avoid shrinkage and warpage-related correction loops with accurate material datas

Every correction loop leads to high costs and delay. Therefore injection molders and toolmakers would prefer to avoid them completely.

Christoph Bontenackels has been working intensively at Simcon on internal and external R&D-projects involving injection molding simulation for several years - in particular on the subject of simulated prediction of shrinkage and warpage. At the 4a Technology Days in Schladming on March 1, 2018, Christoph Bontenackels presented a systematic method how to determine shrinkage and warpage-optimized material data and pointed out how correction loops can be minimized through precise counter-shaping of design data.

“In order to provide our customers with the best possible prediction accuracy for shrinkage and warpage, Simcon carries out systematic test shots and simulations for material data optimization. This enables our customers to achieve a good final part with a minimum number of correction loops", Christoph Bontenackels explains.
