In collaboration with the School of Engineering, the Penn State Behrend Office of Community and Workforce Programs will exhibit at NPE2015: The International Plastics Showcase to be held March 23-27 in Orlando, Florida.
Thermal analysis techniques can reveal localized information about a part's processing history, and processing-induced thermal properties that vary through the part cross section. Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) data reveals important aspects of a plastic material’s behavior over an extended service life. See the how data is generated and learn about practical applications for Flash DSC, DSC, DMA, and TGA. This information can be very valuable for troubleshooting, failure analysis, material characterization, and material selection.
This workshop is geared toward molding professionals including engineers, technicians, managers, and quality engineers manufacturing plastic components for use in medical applications or an FDA regulated environment. This class will provide 2 days of classroom and hands-on applications of process development, quality assurance, and process validation techniques and principles.
This seminar has been developed to provide participants with a basic understanding of the plastic medical device development process. It will teach students how products proceed from basic idea through production in the context of a regulated industry. Attendees will leave with an understanding of the regulatory environment and the overall integrated new product development process. This will be taught with a combination of lectures and group activities.
