Know your Injection Mould – Basics, Design consideration, Plastics, process, manufacturing and troubleshooting

Date : 21 to 25 June, 2021

Time : 0940 Hrs to 1300 Hrs


Plastic parts are integral to various types of products these days in every perceivable sector. Demand for lighter and robust products has pushed the need for usage of plastics wherever possible. Depending on the plastics material to be used and its field usage, it is important to choose the right moulding process for manufacturing the part in the most efficient and cost effective method.

Out of the various moulding techniques, Injection Moulding is the most widely used for large scale production of high quality plastic parts. Therefore, Injection Mould Design assumes great importance in realizing defect-free parts using various plastic materials in required volumes. Having a defect free mould ensures speed and quality remain constant during manufacturing. In order to make such a mould, it is important to understand the design considerations that a mould engineer encounters during the design process.

Keeping this in view, IMTMA is organizing a 5 day programme on Fundamentals of Injection Mould design.
