Paulson ProMolder 2
This is a 5-day classroom and hands-on injection molding technology seminar. Paulson ProMolder 2 is taught in 2 modules:
- Module 1 explains the plastic properties and behavior that affects part quality, the scientific basis and the technology of molding. This is followed by a detailed analysis of common molded part defects, their causes and solutions (attendees may bring molded part examples from their plants for analysis).
- Module 2 is hands-on molding practice using SimTech, the Paulson injection molding simulator, to provide each student hands-on practice in setting and observing the effects of each machine control on the plastic and the molded parts and problem-solving. This is followed by a molding laboratory on an actual machine to demonstrate some of the information previously taught and shown.
