Precision Engineering Workforce Skills Qualifications (PE WSQ): Apply Injection Moulding Tool Design (SPUR-Approved)

Date: 07 Jul 2009 - 26 Jan 2010

Venue: Auditorium, Level 3, Tower Block, SIMTech

Introduction
Polymeric materials are widely used in all walks of our lives. In recent years owing to the advancement of materials and process technologies, more applications using polymeric materials have been found in high-precision industries such as automotive, aerospace, photonics, information technology and medical devices. To tap on these opportunities, it is essential for industry professionals to have a good understanding of polymeric materials and its properties as well as process technologies that are available. This course aims to provide participants with essential practical skills on polymeric materials’ processing properties, injection moulding and mould design technologies.

Course Outline
1. Apply the principles of cavity mould
2. Design an optimum runner system and ejection system
3. Design tools for injection moulded plastic products

 

Who Should Attend
Managers, assistant managers, engineers, executives and technologists from the precision engineering, electronics, automotive, and aerospace industries.

Course Leaders
The course leaders are a team of SIMTech researchers working in polymer processing, polymer product design and development areas.
