Plastic Flow & Design Essentials for Mold Makers/Designers

October 02 - 03, 2013

This course is specifically designed for moldmakers/designers and tooling engineers. The goal of this course is to teach mold design and manufacturing strategies for improving the molding process and resulting part quality through an understanding of plastic flow. The course provides an overview of the injection molding process and what the plastic experiences as it flows through the mold. Students will learn strategies for optimizing mold cooling, gating and runner system designs. In addition, an innovative approach for debugging molds and tracking mold maintenance and other tooling related issues will be taught.
