Full access to all Plastic training courses
We create video training courses weekly with downloadable worksheet to help you design and process plastics. We are adding new lessons every week, focusing on plastic part design, plastic tool design and plastic injection moulding processing. Join the lessons today, and keep up with the technology.
In this lesson we introduce plastic materials and the different types of plastics. We explain the different types of polymers such as thermoplastics, thermosetting and Liquid crystalline plastic materials. We also explain, amorphous and semi-crystalline polymers. We show you the effect of molecular weight on the polymers characteristics and process-ability. We have a downloadable questionnaire for material selection.
We introduce the Injection moulding process and talk about he Molding Sequence. We look at Gating location considerations, edge gating, single top gating, muplital gating, tunnel gating,
Reverse injection etc. We then consider Mold filling orientation, Plastic flow and Factors affecting molecular orientation. Plus work workbook to help design uniformed wall thickness.
In this lesson we look at gating rules and focus in on Injection pressure and how to calculate pressure drop and shear rate. We also consider design in how it effects pressure by designing in flow leaders and restrictors. Also includes , downloadable pressure drop calculation worksheet.
In this lesson we look at part wall thickness and different tooling types, multicavity and family moulds. We consider variations in wall sections as well as gating. We as review moulding defects such as Jetting and weld-lines. There is also
Also includes a useful , downloadable part thickness worksheet with recommendation to wall thickness for different materials. The workbook also considers cost and flow length rations.
In this lesson we look at weld line types and the appearance of weld lines. We also look at material considerations for weld strength as well as shrinkage and warpage in moulded parts.
Also includes a useful , downloadable boss design worksheet.
In this lesson we look at Boss feature design. We also look at correct rib design. Also includes is a useful , downloadable Rib design worksheet.
In this lesson we look as the Pressure volume Temperature relationship of plastics and consider linear mould shrinkage. We also discuss how the plastics shrinkage test is done and values obtained. Finally we discuss
the causes of shrinkage in plastics.
Also includes is a useful , downloadable worksheet showing the typical shrinkage values of plastic materials as well as typical moulding tolerance for different materials..
In this lesson we look at why plastic parts warp and shrink. We also discuss differential shrinkage.and the effect of processing condition such as cooling time on shrinkage. Finally we discuss filled material & shrinkage.
In this lesson we look at cooling and Solidification. We also discuss part thickness & cooling as well as cooling calculations. Finally we discuss filled material & shrinkage. Also includes is a useful , downloadable worksheet showing how to estimate cooling times for plastic parts.
In this lesson we look at plastic part ejection We also discuss part draft angle and ejection forces. We also consider the effect of surface finish, Surface textures, Materials and Mould surface coatings of part ejection.
Assistance with reviewing you tool and plastic part design. Plus assistance with troubleshooting molding issues.
Equipment, machinery & tooling specifying, sourcing, and quotation gathering service. Plus B2B marketing assistance.
Plastic Training and assistance

If you are designing a plastic part for injection moulding we can give you advice on how to design the part so that it will not give you any trouble during moulding and you will be able to manufacture better quality parts.
Here we can give you advice on designing your mould, we review you tool design and make suggestions for improvements. Our tool design advice are based on calculations and best guidelines for tool making.
For our VIP members we offer assistance in connecting with others in the industry, via Linked-in, Facebook, email or google ranking.
If you need to purchases ancillary equipment, machinery or tooling we can help you by specifying what specification you should be looking for. We offer friendly advice and helpful suggestions so you can get the best value for money. We also offer advice on where to buy that is completely unbiased with zero affliction.
We can help you with getting quotation from suppliers and assisting you in building good supplier contracts that protect your business and help build mutual trust between you and your supplier.
If you need advice on plastic material we can offer advice and suggestion based on your requirements. This is especially useful if you are designing a new product or are have molding issues with an excising part.
Our support is offered via whats app, and we are available depends on what package you have. All our consulting services are limited to the hours per month on you your package. You can upgrade at any time to purchases more consulting hours from us depending on your needs.
