Until now, customers needed to update their simulation software to obtain the latest injection molding databases from providers, with a significant lag between new material availabilities and public database updates – sometimes more than a year. They also needed to reach out to multiple contacts on a regular basis to check for the latest resource availabilities from material providers.

Domo is changing this paradigm by providing a valuable new service to customers, comprising frequent updates of its injection molding simulation database for Autodesk Moldflow. Comparable injection material cards for other software (Moldex3D, CADmould) for your sales and technical manager.

“We are at the cutting edge in our approach to provide high-quality data for injection molding and integrative structural – MMI simulation in the fastest and most direct way to our customers,” says Alexandre Chatelain, Simulation Models Database manager at Domo.”

“This project is part of a broader scope aimed at improving our overall digitalization capability and is an instrumental contribution to our commercial digitalization strategy” Chatelain added.

Enabling customers to always have the latest injection molding simulation data from Domo engineered materials, this will save them time and effort in getting the appropriate data for their projects. These fitted and validated measurements for more precise simulation will enable shorter development time for customers, and faster time to market.

Moreover, these direct updates will include new offerings from Domo’s development pipeline as well as newly validated data beyond the standard injection molding process characterization, such as fiber orientation prediction optimization.

“At Domo, we provide unique data – like fiber orientation model parameters calibration and validation – to optimize polyamide part performance,” adds Chatelain. “We understand that it is a burden for our customers if they have to update their simulation software to obtain the latest injection molding data from providers whenever there is a new release. That’s why we now provide injection molding database updates independently from software releases to ensure our customers are always up to date.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
