Webinar: Plastics Processing 101: Understand Plastic Behavior and Become a Better Molder In this FREE…
With a new mold, how do you do the job of building a repeatable, optimized process that will mold thousands of parts? How do you do it most efficiently? Join us for this important and informative webinar “How to Build a Set-up Process from Scratch”.
There are dozens of considerations when you first run a mold that is new to you. What’s the shot size, the injection rate, cooling times, ejection procedures? It can be daunting. Frequently, the trial and error method is employed. Tweaking this and that control and slowly arriving at an acceptable process. There is a better way and our expert instructor, Todd Bryant, will demonstrate it in this webinar. Todd will use SimTech, our injection molding machine simulator, to run dozens of cycles demonstrating how machine control changes affect final part properties.
You’ll get an inside look at process optimization from the “plastic’s point of view” as the foundation to all molding strategies. This means understanding the concept that all machine controls affect one or more of the four plastic processing variables. Paulson’s entire approach, from starting up a machine for a production run, to problem solving an existing run is to examine the situation from the “plastics point of view.”
Key Take Aways Include:
- Learn best-practices implementing a new mold.
- How to ensure the safety of the tool, machine, and your personnel
- Understand specific techniques to use to start-up a new mold
- Get insider knowledge to lowering the cycle time once you’re making good parts
- Learn how to use SimTech™ as a powerful learning tool so you can become a confident molder
Take part in this FREE webinar to learn and apply molding techniques that will dramatically change the way you process.
Special Guest: Donald C. Paulson
Newly inducted into the 2021 Plastics Hall of Fame, (read more here), Donald Paulson is the founder and chairman of Paulson Training Programs, Inc. and the creator of the now widely accepted method of teaching plastic processing from the “Plastics Point of View”. Don will join this webinar and give his personal account of his years of research with the General Motors Institute that lead to transforming injection molding from an art to a science. An experience you won’t want to miss.
