Fundamentals of Systematic Injection Moulding

Course Description

This four-day course is for technical and non technical personnel who are associated with production of thermoplastic injection moulded components. The practically based course covers the concepts of injection moulding with knowledge of the important principles given, highlighting the process is founded upon technical logic.

Areas covered are moulding machine construction; process parameter selection (setting of the moulding process); the effect of mould 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 production, development and design engineers.
