The Society of Plastics Engineers Mold Making and Mold Design Division has a new name: Mold Technologies Division.
The name change is intended to more accurately reflect the division's membership, according to a recent news release. Created for mold makers and mold designers, the division today includes more specialized professions like hot runner support, mold maintenance repair, mold buying, additive manufacturing and more, division chair Glenn Starkey said in a statement.
In addition to its name change, the division is stepping up its engagement in the industry.
“We're becoming more active at trade shows, providing technical presentations at industry events, and planning an SPE event of our own that can provide information and the latest methodologies to assist tomorrow's toolmakers,” Starkey said.
