Injection Moulding & Tooling

A One Day Introductory Course – 23rd October 2014

This course is intended to give delegates a basic grounding in the processing of
thermoplastics and elastomers by injection moulding methods including multi-shot
moulding.

It is ‘hands-on’ with the ability to touch
moulded components, tooling parts and to see working injection moulding machines in action.

In addition the course will look at the key components that make up the injection moulding tool, including various gate designs and hot runner configurations. Whether you know nothing, have a basic understanding or are familiar with this area, this course will provide you with useful knowledge and insights from leading tooling experts who have worked in the industry for over 25 years.

By the end of this course delegates will be able to:

* Understand the key terms and phrases associated with injection moulding machines, the process and a basic multi-cavity hot-runner mould tool configuration.

* Have the knowledge and confidence to interact on an even level with suppliers when specifying, sourcing and managing a plastics moulding, tooling project through to final acceptance.

* Recognise common moulding faults and implement a course of remedial action quickly.

* Create bespoke mould tool specification documents for your own components – this will enable you to not only understand your current suppliers documentation, but also compare alternative suppliers on a like-for-like basis.

Please note that places are limited on this course to allow for lecturer interaction and are allocated on a first come first served basis.
