This seminar provides comprehensive information about the injection molding process, and covers both the underlying engineering principles as well as their application in the molding environment. Classroom lectures cover the basics of the injection molding process and provide practical analyses that yield results and can be applied in the molding shop.
Injection molding workshops supplement the class material to provide experience with actual machine operation and practical molding techniques. Machine start-up, operation and shutdown procedures are demonstrated. Molding trials that show the relationships between processing variables and part quality are conducted.
Workshop emphasis is on practical setup procedures that optimize molding cycle and product requirements. Troubleshooting techniques and solutions to practical molding problems are also addressed.
This course is appropriate for sales managers, account managers, sales and applications engineers, new product development specialists, product marketing professionals, product designers and engineers, industrial designers and industrial engineers, mechanical engineers, materials purchasing managers, manufacturing personnel and technicians, plant managers, production supervisors, quality assurance and quality control personnel, and anyone involved in plastic part or mold procurement.
Attendees will use both electric and hydraulic molding machines, and non-instrumented and instrumented molds.
Course enrollment is limited to 12 students.
