Introduction to Plastics – Focusing on Injection Moulding
Get the key principles of design for manufacture and how this influences the successful manufacture of injection moulded parts.
Participants follow the life cycle of a part from initial design to mould tooling and final manufacturing.
A key component of the course is to identify injection moulding challenges based upon material selection, part design, mould design and mould construction.
Participants will study concepts of tolerancing, material selection, product application, key design principles, the impact of different part features and how these can and should be designed, the utilisation of CAE for effective DFM.
This is a theory based course with interactive activities.
