QQI one to use on website

Fee: €1495 for our 4-day course includes course manual, lunch and refreshments.

This Injection Moulding course focuses on techniques used to understand and “map” the injection moulding process, reducing moulding inconsistency by understanding its causes and effects. A strong emphasis is placed on giving participants the practical skills to apply both SPC and troubleshooting techniques.

There will be home study on most nights to check understanding.

Course Content Day 1:
Introduction and recap on prior knowledge
Troubleshooting and common faults/ discussion
Troubleshooting software (PICAT)
Machine, Mould, Material familiarisation

Day 2:
Practical 1:
7-Point plan to set up clamp/injection end
discussion re: problems at set up/ Ways of solving
Moulding cycle optimisation
Using SPC
Case Studies

Practical 2:
SPC monitoring of m/c to gather data for day 3
A spec. sheet will be provided with tolerances/ cycle times etc.

Day 3:
Discussion on Day 2 outcomes

Practical 3:
Optimise mould, calculate Cp/Cpk again
Review to improve output
Optimising machine cycle
Case Studies

Practical 4:
Change mould and repeat optimising exercise
Calculate Cp / Cpk

Day 4:
Discussion and Feedback
Case Studies

Start the same machine up from cold and note differences in set-up, i.e.sizes, weights, pressures, etc. If time permits zero and start again. Analysis of SPC in classroom
