Understanding plastic materials is critical to nearly every job function within the injection molding industry.
This course is designed to improve the students understanding of polymer structures, the impact of molecular weight, rheology, and crystallinity on material properties. Attendees will also learn critical thought processes necessary to discern between the various root causes of shrink and warp.
Understanding the foundational knowledge of the five key systems and how each one affects the final part quality is imperative in the injection molding process.
This course is designed to give students an in-depth look at the second discipline of the injection molding industry. Attendees will leave with a working knowledge of mold design and manufacturing. Through a mix of lecture and hands-on labs, attendees will break a mold down into its five systems and provide discussions on design strategies for each.
