Key Principles of Scientific Molding Methodology

Key Principles of Scientific Molding Methodology

February 13, 2018 - 2 pm EST
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 webinar, Garrett MacKenzie, a seasoned plastics professional who trained under John Bozzelli, a pioneer of decoupled and scientific molding, will provide instruction on key scientific molding principles.
Effective Plastic Material Selection for Wearable Devices

Effective Plastic Material Selection for Wearable Devices

December 12, 2017 - 2 pm EST
Proper material selection is a critical aspect of wearable device design. The performance requirements can be quite demanding and end-use environments need careful consideration. Additionally, there are subjective requirements such as appearance, sound, weight and balance, and various aspects of feel. In this webinar, Eric Larson, who heads engineering consultancy Art of Mass Production, will explain how to conduct an effective materials selection process that will lead to the development of a commercially successful wearable device.
The Ten (11) Key Principles of Extrusion

The Ten (11) Key Principles of Extrusion

June 27, 2017 - 2 pm EDT
The ten (11) key principles of extrusion are the distillation of my many years working with this process. They are presented in a practical, non-academic way, with no prerequisites other than an open mind and desire to learn. They are intended to be useful to plant engineers, production supervisors, technicians and operators in extrusion factories, as well as people who sell or buy extruded products or sell to those who make them. Mechanical and thermal principles are covered, as well as manufacturing costs and measurement of critical variables, all related to production needs and product...
Now You See It, Now You Don’t - The Magic of Dry Ice in Plastics

Now You See It, Now You Don’t - The Magic of Dry Ice in Plastics

May 31, 2017 - 2 pm EDT
No matter how large or small of a molding operation, three are numerous production solutions utilizing recycled dry ice. This webinar discusses those various uses from in-machine mold cleaning (or on the bench) that can mean the difference between mediocre performance and high-profit productivity, automated surface preparation of plastic parts prior to painting or coatings , automated deflashing or deburring systems of plastic parts, and cleaning injection screws.
