CORE Plastic Injection Processor Training

The plastic411 CORE Processor training system 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!

  • PROCESSING I (includes scientific molding intro)
  • Scientific Molding 

Plastic411 2 day training programs cost considerably lower than most major training companies.. but content is primarily the same.

The primary difference?  The training is developed to be company specific. Very little class time.. on your floor, using your plant’s equipment, materials and processes. 2 day courses that you and I develop together.

The purpose of the training is simple.. to build core skill sets that apply directly to specific company needs and weaknesses. I developed the program based on the common complaint that current platforms have become universal. Much of the information taught isn’t retained because content doesn’t pertain to plant specifics, which makes it difficult to apply in a molder’s own specific environment.

Training Availability: Continental US. PROCESSING I generally starts at $3800, up to 6 attendees. Travel is of course an additional expense. Currently operating the business out of the mid west (Michigan), but also operate out of Florida. 6 month rotation.

It also provides insight into some of the methods that can be implemented to not only reduce system breakdowns, but also can offer smoother start-ups with fewer problems…
