Package Course Descriptions:

Introduction to Injection Moulding

This course provides participants with a general introduction to the plastics industry. The primary focus of this training program is the day-to-day operations of a typical injection moulding facility.

An Introduction to Injection Moulding was created for newcomers to the injection moulding industry or anyone that would like to learn more about plastics. We recommend that new hires take this course before participating in our Injection Moulding Basics series.

An overview of plastics and the industry
- A typical moulding facility
- General plant safety
- An introduction to the moulding process
- Moulding machine components
- Material handling
- Injection mould terminology
- Common part defects

Injection Moulding Basics

Our Basics series provides participants with a general understanding of the three major aspects of injection moulding; the injection moulding machine, the moulding process, and the injection mould. These programs use 3D animation to demonstrate the inner workings of the machine and mould and to easily convey otherwise complex concepts. Important safety precautions are stressed throughout these training programs.

These basic injection moulding training programs are ideal for new hires, yet also serve as an excellent refresher course for any employee involved in plastics processing; from operators and technicians to management and setup personnel.

Part 1: Machine

- Cites important safety precautions around injection moulding machines
- Gives an introduction to the injection moulding process
- Introduces machine types and the different modes of operation
- The injection moulding machine components & their respective functions
- General procedures for starting up and shutting down a moulding machine

Part 2: Process

- Discusses polymers and the three criteria used to classify them
- Covers some of the more common procedures for material preparation
- Introduces the three phases of the process; injection, cooling & ejection
- Explains the need for maintaining an accurate process log
- Defines common injection moulded part defects and explains their causes

Part 3: Mould

- Explains the specific functions that an injection mould must perform
- Introduces the machining methods used to construct an injection mould
- Discusses the three mould configurations used in the industry
- Covers common runner shapes and gate types used in injection moulds
- Gives an overview of proper injection mould maintenance
