Rubber molding course planned.
This seminar is an introductory course on rubber molding. The objective will be to provide an integrated perspective of the molding of rubber. Instructors will first describe the flow behavior of thermoplastic and crosslinking rubber materials and then discuss the behavior of these materials in molding processes.
Because of the wide range of viscosity of these materials, a variety of methods and equipment is said to be needed to mold them successfully. Applicable molding methods will be reviewed with emphasis on the newer methods. Current principles and techniques in the design of molds and molded parts design will be covered.
Materials processes and design factors will then be interrelated to provide an integrated perspective of rubber molding. Instructors will principally cover the design and molding of mechanical rubber goods with only limited reference to the molding of fires.
This seminar will be of benefit to materials and process engineers, rubber mold designers, quality control personnel and managers responsible for these functions. Companies will benefit by sending teams of these personnel, since their working together is so important in an efficient design and manufacturing program, according to the organizers. Attendees are encouraged to bring drawings or parts giving problems in production for discussion by the staff.
Course instructors will include John G. Sommer, Elastech; Richard P. Steiner, Quadra; Terry Chapin, Delphi Automotive Systems; Clyde G. Belongia, Standard Products; and Van T. Walworth, Wynn's Precision.
Registration for the course costs $1,090. Further information is available from Murali Vedula (414) 227-3121.
