Limited spaces are available for engineers involved in material selection, design and fabrication of moulded plastic components to attend a three-day course on welding of moulded plastic components next month.
The training course is a result of recent work by TWI for the automotive industry to review welding procedures and design guidelines for moulded plastic components to guard against failure in service. Last year employees from Jaguar Land Rover became the first personnel to complete the training.
The Welding of Moulded Plastic Components course provides guidance and best practice on welding techniques for joining moulded plastic components using hot plate, vibration, ultrasonic, spin, infrared and laser welding, covering the welding equipment and process parameters for each method. Our instructors will also give direction on joint design and best methods for assessing joint quality.
Involving a mix of classroom and practical sessions, the course will run at our newly built state-of-the-art facilities in Cambridge, UK. It also includes a tour of TWI, course materials, lunch and refreshments.
This course is suitable for those working in high-tech industries such as automotive, medical and domestic appliance, where there is a requirement for the design of complex systems involving parts to be welded together, and is recognised by The Welding Institute for CPD.
Limited spaces are now available for the next course date on 8-10 June 2016.
