Whirley Finds Value from the AIM Institute’s PTE Program

Whirley Drinkworks is a plastic manufacturing company located in Warren, PA that designs and manufactures a wide variety of cups, lids, and other products for the food and beverage industry. Two Whirley employees were recently enrolled in The American Injection Molding Institute’s Plastics Technology and Engineering (PTE) Certificate program. They studied the four primary disciplines of injection molding- materials, tool design, part design, and processing.

Prior to enrolling into the program, Whirley experienced problems while running a PET material on their injection presses. The material was exiting the barrel at excessive temperatures (625º) which caused shot-to-shot inconsistencies and prevented the company from properly stretch blow molding.
