Gain the knowledge to improve your process, to improve your quality!
Systematic Molding is a three-day foundational course for anyone who wants to develop a systematic approach to molding. Through a combination of classroom instruction and activity-driven learning, students leave with a better understanding of how to develop a machine-independent 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.
This course is a great way to help students be successful in Master Molder®.
NOTE: On-machine practice and/or demonstration is not guaranteed for any public Systematic Molding course and is at the instructor’s discretion.
- Mold and part design considerations
- The four plastic variables of injection molding
- The molding system
- The molding problem, simply stated
- Process control from the plastic’s point of view
- Introduction to instrumentation strategies
This course is available publicly or also as an in-plant course.
Length: 3 Days
Participants should have a basic understanding of injection molding machine components. Also, we recommend taking our assessment test to see if you would benefit from taking Injection Molding Essentials and the Math for Molders courses.
