Seminar: Get Past Tweaking to a Scientific Molding Process
Live seminar focuses on creating an optimized process before full-scale production begins.
John Bozzelli, scientific molding guru and columnist at Plastics Technology, will be the instructor for the "At-the-Press Process Development Seminar," August 11-13, in Troy Mich. Promising to help molders "Get It Right the First Time for 24/7 Production," the seminar will concentrate on scientific molding based process optimization with at-the-press instruction.
Monitoring hydraulic and cavity pressure levels on the press, participants will define plastic variables to create a universal setup sheet, which will then allow the tool to be run on any press, accounting for barrel size, hydraulic or all-electric operation, and more.
Other topics to be addressed include:
- Why after PPAP, DOE's & Medical Validations are bad parts still made?
- Finding the tool/part/process problems before production begins.
- Having an optimized 24/7 process from the initial tool trials.
- Having the ability to replicate the tool trial parts on another machine.
