Beaumont & the American Injection Molding Institute Development Course: Mold Design

08/16/2023 - 08/17/2023

Online or in-person (Erie, PA)

The course begins by identifying the five key systems of a mold: melt delivery, cooling, structural, venting, and ejection. Discussions follow featuring the foundations of each system and how they all affect the formation of the plastic part and the final part quality. Participants will take part in three different labs: a mold tear down and assembly, mold print reading, and a cooling cart demonstration. Attendees will gain the ability to evaluate mold design based on the five systems and recognize design features that could be improved.
