This certificate covers the principles to make a quality injection molded part; material, part design, tooling and process. Emphasis will be focused on processing and the importance of melt temperature, fill speed, pack pressure and cooling. As a student in the lab you will have the hands-on opportunity to see the effects of these variables on part quality and yield. Equipment used in the injection molding industry will also be covered. Industry leading technologies of cavity pressure monitoring and graph interpretation will also be covered.
The Plastic Injection Molding Technician Certificate is only available at the Phillips Campus.
