Automotive Plastics Part Design
The 2 - 3 days lecture provides an in-depth explanation of material selection for all automotive market segments: interior, exterior, electric/electronics, powertrain and safety systems. Includes a large number of step by step examples and case histories on how to design and troubleshot plastic parts and systems in each automotive segment.

Blow Molding: Process and Part Design Fundamentals
This intense 2-days lecture is providing a clear understanding of plastic blow molding polymers and various blow molding processes allowing optimization of the material -process selection function. It provides basic design principles for blow molded parts.

Designing Plastics Parts for Assembly
This course makes design procedures and assembly methods and technique easier to use and select.  It increases understanding of what to expect from a polymer when used in various applications. Provides a detailed discussion of methods and methodologies used to make the design process as easy as possible.

Fusible Core Injection Molding Technology
The lecture provides a detailed background of the principles behind the state of art technology describing its history, market segmentation, advantages, disadvantages, proper part design considerations, part/system functional design, metal alloy core geometry and alloy Casting. Also details processing procedures and considerations such as plastic overmolding, melt-out process, secondary operations, CAE tools and core casting.

Integral Seal Design
Presents advanced design techniques using integral seal methods applicable to thermoplastic resins and thermoplastic elastomers as well as good understanding of advanced finite element analysis (FEA) techniques. A step by step approach highlights key material properties and how to utilize them in complex finite element analysis necessary for a successful leak-free assembly.

Material Selection and Specification
Provides in-depth introduction to polymers while using typical application examples to demonstrate the characteristics that set plastics apart from one another. A large variety of testing methods and material selection processes are explained in a practical manner covering a wide range of topics from chemical and thermal analysis to simple techniques and tests effective in a production environment.

Plastic Joint Design
The course deals with specific joint design characteristics and their manufacturing techniques: welding (ultrasonic, spin, hot plate), heat staking, adhesive and solvent bonding and the like. Integrating most of the above techniques by means of living hinges, press fit and snap fit assemblies reduces the number of components and results in a better joint design overall.

Plastic Part Design
Introduction to designing plastic components and systems. Shows how these designs differ from similarly components initially of metals.

Polypropylene: Product Design and Processing
The seminar provides an overview of product market positioning, global players and suppliers and their associated value chain. Also includes hard to find details, tips, techniques and procedures for products made of polypropylene. This seminar makes available a variety of details covering topics such as PP material selection, part design, tooling, processing and quality issues related to the use of PP in injection molded parts and systems.
