Just like a real machine
Paulson’s SimTech is a simulator that transforms an ordinary PC into a closed-loop injection molding machine. The injection molding machine simulator helps molders hone their molding skills, without wasting machine time, plastic, or risking damage to the machine or mold.
It offers a vital link between learning molding as a technology and applying skills on the production floor with comprehensive at-the-machine skills training.
Operating SimTech is just like real machines — molders set machine control, cycle the machine, and learn the effects of each control setting.
