Plastics technology training for business people

Training objectives


Don’t let anyone tell you about the horse, but amaze suppliers, colleagues and customers with technical expertise!

The production costs in the manufacture of an injection molded part are decisive for your economic success. In order to identify cost traps at an early stage and quickly achieve good article quality with high process capability, it is important to have the entire process from granulate grain to finished component in view and under control.

From the idea to the series, interactions must be recognized and the entire production line from supply management, peripherals and injection molding process to post-processing must be considered.

Technical background knowledge and a basic understanding of the manufacturing processes are elementary prerequisites for a holistic assessment. This seminar will provide you with information on the most important factors influencing article costs and enable you to assess and classify them.

This seminar is aimed at all those with product and project responsibility who do not want to be surprised by unforeseen costs and time traps.
