Moulding Defects

Discuss at least 8 different types of moulding defects. Students will be taught on how to identify the faults and remedies to solve these moulding defects


20 questions of theory written examination. Practical examination to be performed at student’s own factory.
Practical examination: Filling row for analysis



Participants will gain knowledge on plastic material, processing data, mould tempering, material drying and mixing, injection moulding technology, filling row analysis, moulding machine and mould technology, injection moulding faults and insert moulding.
