Instructor: Brian Young
Specifically designed for the practicing molder, this workshop focuses on developing new and enhancing existing shop floor troubleshooting skills for solving molded-part defects and improving part quality problems. Each day, participants will rotate through six to eight microprocessor-controlled machines that have been set up with special, case-study molds. These molds have been modified over time to produce a specific molded part defect under a given set of less-than-optimal molding conditions. Participants will analyze and attempt to solve real molding problems.
Who Should Attend:
This two-and-one-half-day workshop is geared to those who wish to improve their knowledge of thermoplastic injection molding. It is designed to provide the greatest value possible to injection molding practitioners who troubleshoot problem parts to increase molding efficiency and decrease part defects/rejects. Beyond machine operators, a variety of others can benefit from the workshop, including process and project engineers, manufacturing engineers, and team leaders.
