Programme overview

This course is designed for QA Engineers who have not had previous formal moulding training. Attendees be given a thorough introduction to the injection moulding cycle, a short overview of plastic materials from a moulding and mould design point of view, and a detailed overview of troubleshooting. Understand the parameters that make up the moulding cycle, troubleshooting moulding defects and reviewing quality/ defect issues. Practical sessions will be delivered using an injection moulding simulator. The course will also cover the techniques to complete a full scientific injection moulding (SIM) study.

Starting Tuesday 19th May and finishes Tuesday 02nd June 

3 x one hour sessions from 9.30pm to 1pm with short breaks between each session. 9 hours in total over 3 weeks.
