Scientific SkillSet™ Labs: Intermediate (Mandarin Chinese Version)

Our intermediate Scientific SkillSet™ labs provide a unique and valuable learning experience for your setup technicians, processors, and engineers. Only from Routsis Training, these innovative courses combine detailed, step-by-step online instruction with practical hands-on labs and worksheets.

This exclusive training approach allows companies to perform the same type of classroom learning found in popular seminars in the comfort and convenience of their own production environment. All our Scientific Skillset™ products are available in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Bahasa Malaysia, and Mandarin Chinese.

Each of the 13 course/worksheet combinations in this group focuses on developing an important processing-related skill — demonstrated on your production equipment.

Melt Temperature Measurement

It’s important for processors to understand that the temperature of the polymer melt will differ from the barrel temperature settings. The purpose of this lab is to determine the actual temperature of the polymer being injected into the mold. Participants practice taking accurate polymer measurements and documenting the results on their worksheet.

Mold Temperature Measurement

Mold coolant is used to help cool the polymer, allowing the part to be ejected without damage or distortion. It’s critical that techs remember the actual mold temperature may be different that the chiller setpoint. In this lab, participants use a surface temperature probe to determine the actual temperature of the coolant entering and leaving the mold.

Process Documentation

Machine-independent process documentation is an essential component of Scientific Molding. This approach to documentation promotes easy troubleshooting and allows the process to be duplicated — even when run on a different molding machine.

1st Stage Injection Speed

Using a faster injection speed is an important step in optimizing the efficiency and consistency of the molding process. This lab teaches participants to quickly determine a fast injection speed that produces acceptable parts.

1st Stage Injection Transfer

In order to accommodate normal variations in the material and processing conditions, the transfer position of the screw needs to be optimized. The purpose of this lab is to establish a 1st stage short shot between 90 and 95% of the final part weight, which is measured and documented on the participant’s worksheet.

1st Stage Injection Pressure

It is important that your process always has adequate pressure available to ensure the machine can maintain the desired injection speed. The purpose of this lab is to determine the maximum injection pressure for your process, which will allow you to compensate for variations in the material and processing conditions.

1st Stage Injection Time

It is important that your process has adequate time available. A correctly-set injection time ensures the screw can travel from the shot size to the transfer position. The purpose of this lab is to determine the fastest 1st stage injection time for your process, while compensating for normal variations.

1st Stage Check Ring

In any Scientific Molding process, the check ring must be capable of providing a reliable, consistent amount of material during 1st stage fill. Participants evaluate and document the functionality of the check ring — to determine how consistently the molding machine is injecting material during 1st stage fill.

2nd Stage Packing Pressure

The purpose of this lab is to determine the lowest and highest packing pressures that create an acceptable part, and then to determine a final packing pressure setting. Participants find the optimal packing pressure by examining the parts for sinks or flash — and logging their findings.

2nd Stage Packing Time

Your process must have enough packing time to ensure the gate fully seals. In this lab, participants graph part vs. second stage weight — in order to determine the appropriate gate seal time for the process. Once determined, this value is used to derive the optimal second stage packing time.

2nd Stage Final Cushion

For most processes, the optimal cushion is around 10% of the overall shot size. The purpose of this lab is to adjust the shot size and transfer position to create an optimal cushion at the end of 2nd stage packing. This prevent bottoming-out while maximizing pressure transfer.

2nd Stage Clamp Force

Clamping must be set correctly in order to protect the mold and maximize the effectiveness of the mold vents. In this training lab, the participant determines the minimum amount of clamp force necessary to make an acceptable part, while compensating for normal process variations.

Screw Recovery Time

Optimal screw recovery protects the quality and integrity of your polymer during melting. In this lab, participants determine an appropriate recovery time — one that ensures the plastic material is not experiencing excessive shear, without wasting energy or time.

Scientific SkillSet™ Labs: Advanced (Mandarin Chinese Version)

Designed for advanced process techs and engineers, our advanced Scientific SkillSet™ courses build on the skills developed in the intermediate labs. In these advanced, hands-on courses, participants learn how to quickly and effectively optimize a scientific injection molding process.

Each online video course/worksheet combination in this group builds an important processing-related skill. These skills are demonstrated on your production equipment — without costly seminars or the inconveniece of travel.

1st Stage Fill Progression

In this lab, participants learn how the mold actually fills. Problem areas are identified and recorded on the lab worksheet. The participant performs a series of short shots to identify how the polymer flows through the gate, fills the cavity, and reaches the end of fill.

1st Stage Rheology Curve

In-Mold Rheology allows you to gain extremely valuable rheological information about your mold and material without any special laboratory equipment. Participants determine an optimal 1st stage filing time for a given mold — by determining the injection time at which shear thinning occurs.

1st Stage Cavity Imbalance

Mold filling imbalances contribute to unwanted variations in the molding process. The purpose of this test is to determine the injection speed that provides the optimal cavity filing balance.

Coolant Temperature

The purpose of this lab is to determine the lowest temperature which produces acceptable parts. Participants establish the optimal mold coolant temperature controller settings and log their results.

Cooling Time

In this SkillSet™ training lab, participants evaluate their process to determine an optimized cooling time, while compensating for normal variations in the molding process.

Rear Zone Temperature

Participants must determine a rear zone temperature that provides the best overall material conveyance during screw recovery. A correctly-set rear zone temperature conserves energy and maximizes the process’s melting capacity.

Mold Opening

Proper mold open settings minimize the distance the mold opens while safely increasing the mold open speed. In this lab, participants learn to configure both the speed and distance of mold opening — to optimize clamp settings while protecting part quality.

Part Ejection

Here, participants learn why part removal settings are essential to maintaining an efficient process. The goal of this exercise is to minimize the time and energy required to remove the part — while protecting both the part and mold.

Mold Closing

Proper mold close settings are essential to process optimization. In this course, participants learn to optimize the clamp settings while protecting the mold and actions.

Mold Protect Force

Proper mold protect settings are critical to both employee safety and mold welfare. In this exercise. participants learn to set the mold protect force correctly — to help prevent the mold from clamping on a stuck part and to reduce the potential for damage when ejection problems occur.

Comparative Rheology

Dealing with plastic material variation is inevitable in the injection molding industry. In this lab, participants learn how to analyze and quantify these variations — comparing materials, grades, lots, additives, temperatures, etc. and recording their findings.

Measuring Mold Deflection

Excessive mold deflection makes it difficult to establish and maintain a reliable injection molding process. This test determines the average mold deflection over a series of 5 cycles. The information they record in this lab is extremely useful for benchmarking and troubleshooting mold deflection issues.

Measuring Platen Deflection

Excessive platen deflection can make your processes unreliable. Here, participants learn how to benchmark and troubleshoot platen deflection issues on your facility’s injection molding machines.
