Injection Molding & Root Cause Analysis for QC/QAThe Injection Molding and Root Cause Analysis for QC/QA course by AIM Institute is tailored for those involved in any aspect of quality control or quality assurance for injection molding.

The course begins with an overview of the injection molding machine, process and terminology to help students better communicate with molders and mold makers. Students then learn how plastics flow in the mold and the influence it has on part quality. The course then teaches an innovative Flow Grouping methodology to improve upon root causes analysis of part quality variations. Both in-class and hands-on lab sessions are used to enforce the strategies being taught.
