Fundamentals of Systematic Injection Molding

Course Description

This four-day course is for technical and non-technical personnel who are associated with production of thermoplastic injection molded components. This course provides hands-on, practical applications that introduce the principles of injection molding and DECOUPLED MOLDING® processes.

Areas covered are molding machine construction, process parameter selection (setting of the molding process), the effect of mold temperature control, material handling, and the use of additives with reference to component quality and consistency.

The course is ideal for sales, marketing, quality, production, control, and production administration personnel as well as development and design engineers
