Defective plastic parts are often only found late in the day and after significant investment of time and money.
This online version of our well established classroom-based course will help you develop an understanding of the causes of part defects and how to avoid them. Common plastic part defects will be explored and solutions developed, enabling attendees to design plastic parts with confidence.
This course will also introduce the application of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) tools to identify issues early in the design cycle.
This course is aimed at all designers and engineers involved with injection moulded parts.
Toolmakers and technicians looking to increase their understanding of the injection moulding process will also benefit from attending this course.
A technical education and a background in the fundamentals of finite element analysis are recommended.
Audience: Designers, engineers, researchers, students and managers who are currently or may in the future be involved with FEA within their role.
This course is suitable for anyone using FEA software directly, involved in specifying FEA projects or reviewing, checking and interpreting results within FEA reports.
As a fundamentals course, it is assumed that delegates do not have any previous experience. However, it can also serve as a refresher course if you have some existing FEA experience obtained from work or academic studies.
This online course is split into 2 sessions over 2 consecutive days at approximately 3 hours each.
Sessions commence at 9 am.
A classroom-based course is also available at one of our venues if preferred to virtual training.
