About this course:
This course continues the introduction to the injection molding process (Injection Molding 101) and is designed for operators, technicians, process engineers, quality auditors, supervisors, and maintenance personnel. This course covers all fundamental aspects of the injection molding process, machine operations and is intended to give the student the information necessary to effectively operate and improve the performance of the injection molding process. The Injection Molding 102 course explains in greater detail the major aspects in the injection molding process focusing on designing the mold for mold-ability, fundamental rules of plastic part design, the four plastic variables, injection molding machine operation, culminating with a procedure for establishing a set of startup process conditions. Focus is placed on the equipment used in each operational phase with emphasis on areas important in process troubleshooting and problem solving using the basic troubleshooting guide in the course manual.
