Mold Start-Up, Debug & Qualification

November 06 - 07, 2013

This course is for anyone involved in getting molds into production and optimizing the performance of existing molds. Common mold bench test and start-up procedures are reviewed with the goal of getting students to better understand and question those procedures from plastic’s perspective. The course then teaches a systematic Flow Grouping method for identifying and isolating root causes of variation seen during mold start-up. The course uses both in-class and hands-on lab sessions to help enforce the strategies being taught and reduce the time spent on mold debug and qualification.
