Course Description

3 Day Advanced Scientific Processing Hands-On Workshop is designed to provide students with valuable hands-on machine time to reinforce the methodologies they have learned in the Fundamentals of Injection Molding or the Paulson ProMolder I class. Attendees will acquire the knowledge they need to dissect a process, rebuild the process using data driven methodologies, improve on it and document the return on investment, or indicate potential improvement areas using the current condition of the machine and mold.

The results will vary class to class depending on your machine and mold conditions, but the end result will be the most robust process possible with the current conditions. The instructor will give recommendations on ways to further improve the process by improving the condition of a machine, mold or procedures that may be hindering performance.

* The PCE Fundamentals of Injection Molding or Paulson ProMolder I class must be successfully completed prior to participating in the Advanced Scientific Processing Hands-On Workshop. You may also be interested in our PCE Math for Molders course which may be on our schedule the day before your Systematic Molding class and the Fundamentals of Injection Molding.
