Course Description

Instructor: John Bozzelli


This seminar concentrates on process optimization with hands-on, at-the-press instruction and defines the necessary variables to establish a “Universal Setup Sheet”. By the end of the course we will have established a setup sheet that can be used on any correct tonnage press that can accept the mold. Different barrel sizes, electric or hydraulic; the setup sheet will work on all. Having one setup sheet per mold rather than a separate setup sheet for each different press will not only improve consistency but also speed setups and bring back healthy profit margins.

Why you should attend

  • Want a data driven method that gets it done right the 1st time?
  • Tired of developing a new process every time the mold is hung?
  • Is it possible to get all to agree on a processing strategy?
  • Interested in one set-sheet per mold vs. each press? Think of the time and document savings!

What you will learn

  • What are the key components of a successful plastic application
  • What are the differences between machine and plastic variables mean to your process
  • Get processors, quality control, maintenance, supervisors and your clients on the same page to end the bickering and make production on time
  • How to establish practical SPC at the press
  • What are the six critical plastic variables to monitor during production
  • See exclusive glass mold videos of plastic flow under true molding conditions
  • 95% of your cycle is cooling, learn how to optimize cooling, BIG $$$$

Who should attend

Anyone interested in obtaining an optimized process for 24/7 production and repeatable on differnt pressess. PPAP or FDA included. Design, Process, Project Engineers, Processors, Quality Control, Process Technicians, Machine Suppliers, Plant Owners and Production Management will learn what is needed for getting the job done consistently right in the least amount of time and frustration. Enrollment is limited.
