The biggest day to day issue facing most molders is “Can I mold parts that fit my customer’s specifications and tolerances”. The plan for how to make the Injection Molding process more capable of meeting these specifications and tolerances will be divided into two parts. The webinar will begin with a discussion of how we can quantify our dimensional quality target. We will then proceed to details of how to control and adjust the process to make it more consistently hit the bull’s eye on that target. To get the most out of this webinar attendees should have completed the webinar “Data Driven Cycle Development in Plastics Injection Molding” or have a mastery of decoupled molding theory. This webinar includes: 1. Is there a way to reduce the amount of product we lose because of out of spec dimensional issues?; 2. Is there a way to measure how well are molding today compared to how we molded last year?; 3. We recently purchased a new molding machine. How will we know if it improved the quality of the parts we mold?; 4. The parts we mold always run on the high side of our customer’s tolerances. Are there any adjustments we can make to the molding process before we make steel adjustments?; 5. How can we overcome process variations like lot-to-lot material variability?
Speaker: Tim Weston is Professor Emeritus of Plastics and Polymer Engineering Technology at Pennsylvania College of Technology, a Penn State affiliate. He is the recipient of the 2006 Society of Plastics Engineers Fred E. Schwab International Education Award. Prior to founding the Plastics program at Penn College, Tim led the Process Engineering group and Materials Testing Labs for West Pharmaceuticals Plastics Division. Tim received a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Lock Haven University and earned a Master of Science in Polymer Science from The Pennsylvania State University.
