Master Molder® II
The Master Molder® II qualification is designed for process personnel who need to understand and demonstrate processing using cavity pressure. Participants will learn to apply cavity pressure control strategies to accomplish DECOUPLED MOLDING® III Process techniques using instrumentation and data acquisition, and gain a deeper understanding of the improvements Decoupled III provides for process repeatability and robustness. This course also covers the proper use of instrumentation and how to achieve process control solutions utilizing Decoupled III processing techniques. You will learn how monitoring techniques are used to detect and contain suspect parts and how to perform accurate machine and mold qualifications.
Participants will get extensive hands-on training on the RJG eDART® System. This includes system set-up, troubleshooting and data analyzer.
- Cavity pressure control using Decoupled III molding techniques
- Reading and interpreting cavity pressure curves
- Matching processes on different presses using cavity pressure data
- Proper sensor location and placement
- Evaluation of molding machine performance
- Calculating process improvement
Course length: 2 weeks
This course is available publicly or also as an in-plant course.
To register for the Master Molder® II class, it is required that you have received your Master Molder® I certificate.
In-Plant courses must have an eDART® System (fully installed) and an instrumented mold.
RJG® strongly recommends a minimum of 3 months between the Master Molder® I and Master Molder® II classes. This will allow students time to implement new skills learned in Master Molder® I in order to maximize the likelihood of passing Master Molder® II.
The eDART® System and cavity pressure will be used in this training, therefore those not familiar with navigating the main eDART screens may find eDART training helpful, but it is not required.
