The speakers at the April 26 High-Tech Consortium [HTC] meeting will be Dr. Delia Valles-Rosales and Jesus Wong who will discuss Mold Design, Analysis and Simulation of the Cooling System at the Injection Process.

Injection molding is an important industry in southern New Mexico and far west Texas.  A new material type, wood-plastic composites (WPCs) – also known as natural fiber plastic composites or natural fiber reinforced plastics – are composite materials comprised mainly of a mixture of wood fibers and plastics, as well as small amounts of additives to enhance the composite material. One of the biggest challenges researchers face is facing is the design of molds to accommodate the composite material.  In this presentation, work in the Department of Industrial Engineering, New Mexico State University to develop better mold designs for these new materials will be presented.

HTC membership meetings are open to the public. FREE TO ATTEND, is being held at the Arrowhead Center on the NMSU campus, April 26, from 4:30pm to 6:00pm. Parking is free.. Anyone interested in growing technology in southern New Mexico is encouraged to attend. For more information please call Dr. Ed Pines at 575-646-2730, or Paul Deason at 575-644-8427.
