Course Title Hours Description 3rd Party (Y/N)
Advanced Scientific Molding 32 This seminar concentrates on process optimization using mold injection manufacturing machinery with hands-on, at-the-press instruction and defines the necessary variables to establish a "Universal Setup Sheet". This seminar is specifically designed for people who start up a new mold or people who must optimize existing cycles, as well as personnel responsible and accountable for quality-molded product molded at a competitive cost. On-machine demonstrations supplement the classroom material, so participants will be involved with actual machine operation. Relationship between hydraulic pressure, plastic pressure, cavity pressure and on-machine rheology is demonstrated so that participants may mold on hydraulic or electric presses to obtain identical parts. Emphasis is placed on practical setup procedures, which will optimize your overall molding cycle. By the end of the course, participants will have established a setup sheet that can be used on any correct tonnage press that can accept the mold with different barrel sizes and on electric or hydraulic. Having one setup sheet per mold rather than a separate setup sheet for each different press will not only improve consistency but also speed setups and improve efficiency and productivity. 3rd party
