Injection Molding

Over the past year, we’ve had many requests for technical seminars so we put together an impressive three-day course to be held this year in eight cities nationwide. Visit us for details. The new seminars, part of our Paulson Plastics Academy, specifically focuses on the fundamentals and science of injection molding automotive parts–ideal for anyone wishing to understand the plastic molding process. This certification seminar begins February 22-24, in California with a seminar held every month through to October. Plastics Pioneer and Paulson Training CEO, Don Paulson will be attending February’s seminar. If you haven’t met Don, this would be an ideal time to do so. He has developed several well-known Plastics processes and holds nine US patents. If you’ve always wanted to know the Hows and Whys of the Plastics molding industry here’s your chance. Register today. Seats are limited to 20.

New Electric Injection Molding Machine Course

Compare to injection molding automotive parts, electric molding machines now account for over 50% of new machine sales. There are several reasons for their popularity, more precise control, lower electricity consumption, and potentially faster cycles are among the reasons. But along with these and other advantages are potential problems. To avoid very expensive operating mistakes, these machines require knowledgeable personnel with a comprehensive understanding of this new technology. It was time we created an effective training course to address the growing demands of this new technology. We set to work creating new, robust graphics showing close-up details of the machine and controls; we assembled our filming crew and head out to a state-of-the-art processing plant to film the actual machine in use and of course, we applied our expert knowledge for the script of each lesson. In short, we’ve created a comprehensive three-lesson course including specifics in machine design, cycle and parts; effects of controls; and how to optimize electric machine settings and much, much more. We have some special pre-release offers going. Give us a call to learn more. Our new product ships on July 30, 2010. Give us a call we’d love to hear from you and are ready to answer any of your questions.

INJECTION MOLDING TRAINING: Basic Molding Machine Operations

This is an introductory injection molding training course describing molding machine parts and operation, operator responsibilities, safe practices and identifying part defects. It is ideal for all operators, entry-level employees, temporary employees, and even job candidates. Also available in Spanish.

  • Lesson 1 – This plastics training lesson starts with an overview of the injection molding process, then covers basic material handling does and donts, machine part identification and standard operator responsibilities during the molding cycle. Emphasis is given to operating safety, protection of molds from damage, and proper plastic part handling.
  • Lesson 2 – This plastics training lesson explains molding machine operations. It also discusses regrinding, trimming flash and degating plastic parts from runners. Employees are taught to identify common part defects such as short shots, flash, warp, surface defects and color changes.

Paulson School of Molding is fully interactive plastics training program introduces newcomers to technology using injection molding training with full motion video, text, audio and graphics animation.
