Systematic Molding for Liquid Silicone Rubber
Gain the knowledge to improve the quality of your LSR molded parts.
Systematic Molding for LSR is a course for anyone who wants to develop a systematic approach to molding products with liquid silicone rubber. Success of a molding project occurs when there is an understanding of the whole process from part design through finished part. This course will provide the fundamentals for building a robust and repeatable process.
Students leave this course with a better understanding of how to develop an LSR process, how to make data-driven improvements to existing processes, and how to effectively troubleshoot using scientific and systematic approaches. Students will also understand the cause and effect relationships between the machine, process, mold, and material as well as how and why polymer behavior is influenced. This will allow them to make informed decisions for lasting solutions instead of band-aid fixes to the process.
