Polymer Processing training is intended for new /advanced operators who will use production equipment to directly produce products to be included in commercial, industrial or consumer products, may be components in automobiles, airplanes and marine craft as well as domestic appliances, industrial and commercial plant and equipment.

The objective of this training is to review aspects of the current state of the art in polymer compounding, plastics injection molding and product engineering. Additionally, the training would include deeper knowledge of polymers and polymer related processes. The participants will also be able to apply their knowledge to anticipate problems and solve them in accordance to operating procedures. On successful completion of the training, trainees will have the knowledge and understanding to place them in a position to deal with aspects of:

  • Principles of polymer compounding and processing and their effects on morphological structure and properties of manufactured plastic products.
  • Material and process selection, product design for manufacturing, plastics conversion techniques, especially injection molding and in-mold plastics bonding

Who should attend?

If you are a mechanical engineer, technology educator, technician or anyone interested in polymer processing technology then this training is suitable for you.
