The plastic injection process and its associated mould sector is one of the product manufacturing processes that most requires qualified personnel.

The high quality and multipurpose requirements mean that professionals must know the different phases involved in obtaining injected parts that meet the established quality criteria.

This requires that the industry professionals associated with the production of injection moulded parts have adequate technical knowledge of all the materials and processes involved, enabling them to respond to this need for companies.

Objectives

  • The main objective of the training is that the student can understand the process of manufacturing a mould, what steps must be followed to manufacture a quality mould, how to interpret the documentation as well as understanding the injection process, a process in which the mould will be used and where its correct performance will be validated.
  • To be able to distinguish the properties of mould making metals to manufacture the mould depending on the production needs.
  • To be able to identify and classify plastic materials to be used in an injection moulding conventional process, depending on their typology and properties.
  • To distinguish the parts used for integrating and manufacturing a mould.
  • To analyse the behaviour of plastic in mould cavities.
  • To evaluate defects in injected parts.

Who is it aimed at?

  • Workers with recognized experience in the injection of plastic sector wanting to grow professionally, such as part designers, head managers, injection operators.
  • Workers with no or limited experience in mould making.
  • Young students coming from the Standardized Metal Mould Making Professional Education.
  • Se dará prioridad en las inscripciones a las empresas industriales asociadas y clientes

Methodology

  • The assessment of the students’ learning progress will include the following key aspects:
  • The training has theoretical contents and quizzes related to these contents. Also, each unit has open forums for the students during the duration of the corresponding unit for discussion and/or doubts.
  • In the self-learning activities, the trainees will deepen their learning using external references included as external information sources. With this activity the trainee acquires the capability to look and find the right information sources that can help to increase knowledge about this subject.
