Plastic411 Scientific Molding Work Shop: Dalton, GA September 23-24


This video outlines the upcoming Scientific Molding work shop being held at CH3 Solutions in Dalton, GA . The event is 2 full days, from 8AM to 4PM.

The two-day program will cover the following topics:

 

Process development: How to establish a new process using decoupled molding techniques

 

Process recording: Capturing all scientific data specific to a process, including melt and mold temperature and turbulent flow

 

Process monitoring and control: Differentiating between flexible and rigid process control limits. Attendies will learn how to gather historical molding data and make comparisons to current running condition

 

Standardization: Identifying situations that adversely affect process standardization and properly using tools to improve and verify process consistency

 

Design optimization experiments (DOE): Designing and implementing DOE experiments to improve process and production system performance

 

Process optimization: Applying techniques that improve cycle times without jeopardizing process consistency and scrap rates

 

In-depth Scientific studies: Exploring fill time, gate seal, back pressure, pressure drop, cavity balance, melt and mold temperature, cavity pressure, viscosity and more

 

Lean manufacturing tools: Improving lean manufacturing using tools such as the five Ms of molding and the Seven Deadly Wastes

 

Cost for the event is $1100 per person. SPE and MAPP members receive a %30 discount. There is a maximum of 10 attendees for this training event, but future events will be scheduled as classes fill up.

Corporate rate for Hotel is $92.97 per night plus tax, only minutes from the plant. It is recommended you fly into Chattanooga, which is a 30 minute drive to the plant.

Training Outline- The following scientific molding training and more will be covered in the 2 day training event.

This is NOT class room training! Both days of training take place directly on the machine:

  • Process Development: Participants will be trained how to establish a new process using decoupled molding technique
  • Process Recording: Attendees will be shown how to record all scientific data that is specific to a process. This includes melt and mold temperature data, as well as turbulent flow-specific data
  • Process Monitoring & Control- Instruction will be given regarding monitoring and process control. Participants will learn what process control limits are flexible, and which need to be rigid to maintain the rigidity of the process
  • Standardization– Attendees will learn what situations adversely affect process standardization, and be given tools to improve consistency and verify process consistency.
  • Design Optimization Experiments–  Processors will learn to design and implement DOE experiments to improve process and production system performance
  • Process Optimization– Attendees will be taught optimization techniques that improve cycle times without jeopardizing process consistency and scrap rates.
  • Scientific Studies–  Procedures for fill time, gate seal, back pressure, pressure drop, cavity balance, melt temperature, mold temberature, barrel temperature and cavity pressure measurement will be taught.
  • Lean Manufacturing Tools- Participants will be given tools to improve the lean approach within their production systems. Tools such as the 5 M’s of Molding, 5 Why’s and 7 Deadly Wastes will be taught.
  • NASCAR vs. Quick Change Over– Processors will learn how to use the lessons of a NASCAR pit crew to effectively minimize down time, while effectively increasing changeover consistencies to improve start up capabilities
