This month, in our FREE SimTech™ series of webinars, we will examine one of the more common problems in injection molding, short shots. Our expert instructor, Todd Bryant will review two of the most basic causes of short shots and show you how to test and practice solving this problem utilizing our SimTech injection molding simulator.
Watch a brief video clip from our Injection Molding Part Problems and Solutions course showing short shots.
You’ll get an inside look into the process 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:
- Problem solving a short shot part defect
- Identifying the root cause of the short shot problem
- Understand how and why short shots occur by understanding the plastic from the “plastics point of view”.
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.
