Paulson ProMolder 2

Good to know: We offer a few select seminars online in a virtual classroom format. Check the schedule to see available dates.

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.
  • ProMolder 2 Seminar also includes more machine time, additional hours, and a new math for molders module.

Certification: Paulson Training Programs has an excellent reputation for developing highly qualified injection molding personnel who are sought after by the industry. To maintain this quality we test each student at the end of the course with a written exam. Grades 90% and above will earn a Gold Certificate of Achievement; 80% – 89% a Silver Certificate of Achievement; those achieving a 70%-79% will earn a Blue Certificate of Achievement, and all others earn a Certificate of Attendance.

A prerequisite to take this course is satisfactory completion of the Paulson ProMolder 1 seminar or the equivalent Paulson CD or web-based training. Others having molding experience may attend this course by passing a pre-assessment test administered by Paulson.
