SmartTech™ Processor Pro

2 Days On-Site Training + 11 Advanced Online Courses

This package provides participants with a well-rounded understanding of Scientific Injection Molding. SmartTech™ Processor Pro is perfect for die setters, technicians, engineers, supervisors, and managers.

Prior to the event, participants are required to take online courses to prepare them for focused technical discussions and labs. This preparatory online training allows the instructor to better focus the discussions on your equipment and materials during the actual training session. Online training is also used after the on-site visit — to reinforce and expand upon concepts learning during the hands-on training sessions.

This advanced 2-day training is focused on the advanced skills of building, documenting, and troubleshooting a Scientific Molding process. We also offer an optional 1-day add-on workshop to further develop your employees’ scientific processing skills.

The SmartTech™ Processor Pro program combines:

  • Pre-Requisite Online Training
  • Face-to-Face Instruction
  • Hands-On Skills Development
  • Post-Requisite Online Training
  • SmartTech™ Processor Pro Completion Exam

SmartTech™ Processor Pro: +1 Day Add-on Workshop

This optional 1-day workshop further advances your employees’ scientific processing skills — directly related to your workplace and equipment.

As a group, the instructor and students will spend the first part of the morning documenting established processes at your facility. The remainder of the session focuses on developing a process at your facility. Based on the intent of management, this lab is then performed on an existing mold or a new tool. After the tool and process are reviewed, participants then utilize a variety of processing tools to develop and document a robust and reliable process, under the direction of our instructor.
