Fundamentals of Injection Molding

Participants are provided with an overview of the plastics industry and introduced to injection molding, with emphasis on safety. The courses go on to explain how an injection molding machine and mold function, how the process works, and the nature of plastic materials. Concepts such as quality control, troubleshooting, and process optimization are also introduced.
