Scientific Troubleshooting for Injection Molders

These four in-depth scientific molding training programs provide participants with the knowledge base required to indentify and troubleshoot over twenty-five of the most common injection molded part defects. Users will also come away with a better understanding of how to best process, document and maintain a reliable scientific injection molding process.

Introduction

This scientific molding training program focuses on the 7-step process to scientific troubleshooting. Participants are also presented with information and practices on how to best process, document and maintain a reliable scientific injection molding process.

  • Step 1 – Develop a Scientific Molding Process
  • Step 2 – Properly Document the Process Outputs
  • Step 3 – Examine the Defective Part and Rule Out Obvious Causes
  • Step 4 – Compare the Current Process with the Documented Process
  • Step 5 – Return the Process to the Documented Standard
  • Step 6 – Verify the Part and Process
  • Step 7 – Document all Changes Made

Visual Defects

Nine of the most common visual defects encountered in injection molding processing are covered within this extensive scientific molding training program. Participants will be better prepared to troubleshoot these defects as each one will be defined and their respective causes and corrections will be explained in detail. Defects include:
