This video is an outline of the scientific molding workshop being held at CH3 Solutions in Dalton, GA on September 23 and 24. It includes the event summary, time line. cost and registration process.
Plastic injection processing has experienced massive change in the last 20 years. The days of molding by time and pressure have given way to molding by position, peak pressure and process repeatability, aka scientific molding.
In this Plastics Today webinar, I am hosting the webinar and will provide instruction on key scientific molding principles.
Essential topics include: process development, recording, monitoring and control; standardization; design optimization experiments; and process optimization. Molding managers, process engineers, quality engineers, process technicians and anyone who needs an understanding of scientific molding and lean manufacturing concepts will benefit from this webinar.
Attend this webinar and learn:
- What is needed during the process development stage
- How to capture all scientific data specific to a process, including melt and mold temperature and turbulent flow
- How to avoid situations that adversely affect process standardization (including an overview of tools that improve and verify process consistency)
- Techniques that improve cycle times without jeopardizing process consistency and scrap rates
- The nuances of fill time, gate seal, back pressure, pressure drop, cavity balance, melt and mold temperature, cavity pressure, viscosity and more
Plastic411 providing training to CH3 Solutions in Dalton, GA. Great group that takes pride in their job and takes very seriously the importance of their customers!
Core is an in-plant training program that first identifies the strengths and weaknesses of your team,, and then develops in-house training at your plant using your presses and equipment!
This is NOT class room training that is quickly lost with very little retention due to the generic content of many programs that often are not providing information that applies to your plant!
CORE Processor Training System
I am now offering a training program that is specifically designed to address each company’s training needs individually. The CORE program is intended to enforce and compliment the standard training programs available for decoupled and scientific molding.
CORE builds the talents within your processing team by identifying, addressing and removing specific weaknesses through training, development and equipment. The system has a unique set of tools not found in any other program…

Plastic injection processing has experienced massive change in the last 20 years. The days of molding by time and pressure have given way to molding by position, peak pressure and robust process. RJG and John Bozzelli were major pioneers in the development of decoupled and scientific molding as the procedures were developed and given structure. Plastic injection as an “art” gave way to plastics processing as a science of repeatable, standardized processes.

The Leadership Network: Jeffery Liker
You can only imagine how exciting it was for industrial engineers and researchers when they were conducting research to understand the strategy and tools behind Toyota’s meteoric growth.
All the studies showed that Toyota was faster, with less costs and inventory, and delivering a higher quality compared to the American and European automakers. And it wasn’t by a small amount; Toyota used a small fraction of the inventory yet built cars on time every day with high quality…..

The Beaumont Effect is recognized as the source of mold filling imbalances and product variations in molds
with four or more cavities. The worst failures caused by the phenomena can be most easily (visually) recognized
in molds with 8 or more cavities. However, shear induced melt variations impact every injection molded
part, with a greater influence than most realize….
Art Schubert of RJG discusses how to capitalize on the power of process simulation and building an injection molding process prior to building a mold.
