A new springSociety of Plastics Engineers (SPE,www.4spe.org) FastTrack training program has just been announced. The topics have been designed to enhance injection molding, extrusion molding, blow molding and thermoforming knowledge levels regardless of plastics industry tenure.
First-ever course offerings include managing
innovation; principles of sustainable business; single-stage reheat blow molding
fundamentals; solving the plastic product design and development puzzle; medical
device design and processing; materials and testing for thermoforming; permeation
fundamentals; and optimizing sheet extrusion thermoforming while reducing stress.
