Injection Molding Machine Hands-on Training: Setup, Processing & Troubleshooting

May 14 - 16, 2019


This is the ideal course for someone interested in the proper setup of a molding machine.  Machine sequences along with “rules of thumb” as well as “do’s & don’t” of processing will be addressed.

You will also gain a fundamental understanding of the overall injection molding process via Scientific Molding from the Plastics Point of View.

Course Summary:  Fundamentals of Scientific Injection Molding is an ideal class for someone that wishes to learn and understand the basics of injection molding while correlating classroom theory with hands-on machine time.

The class involves:

  • The Injection Molding Machine - Basics
  • Polymeric Materials Fundamentals  - Basics
  • The Four Primary Plastic Conditions and their effects on Processing & Molded Part Properties
  • Hands-on Implementation of Screw Position Switchover Techniques via Scientific Molding
