Robert Morris University - Lake County (click here for written directions)
1507 Waukegan Road
Waukegan, IL 60085 USA
Seminar Hours: 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. (registration first day at 8:00 a.m.)
A two day in-depth assembly
seminar that will provide information on material selection, design procedures,
processing techniques, and the assembly methods required when designing with
Upon the completion of this course you will have learned:
º Advanced concepts for plastic system and component design
º How to define and use safety factors
º Determine the optimum assembly method
º Utilize commercially available software for plastic part design
º How to select materials
º Behavior of plastic resins
This course will make material selection, design procedures and methodologies, processing techniques, and assembly methods easier to use. It will increase your understanding of what to expect from a plastic resin. It will provide a detailed discussion of methods and a step-by-step methodology used to make the design process as easy as possible.
Designing for assembly and manufacturing has always been an important task for designers, engineers and all other involved in product development. A new emphasis has been placed on design over the last few years as designing for manufacturing and assembly (DFMA) has become a significant manufacturing trend around the world. Yet, until now, no system of design for plastics has been developed specifically for the DFMA process. This course fills that void by showing how plastics parts and systems can be designed to incorporate the benefits of DFMA.
