Understanding Shrink & Warp

August 28 - 29, 2013

This course is designed for those involved in plastic part and mold design, processing and troubleshooting warped parts. The course begins with in-depth discussions on plastics and plastic flow. The course then dives deeper into understanding and recognizing volumetric versus orientation-induced shrinkage, and how each causes parts to warp. Students will learn thought processes that help them distinguish between the two types of shrink, and how to isolate possible root causes within each. Students also learn various strategies for reducing warp by evaluating options in part design, mold design and processing.
