The Extrusion Master I Certification™ is a 5 days course consisting of 3 days classroom training, 1 day demonstration on an extrusion line, and 1 day final exam. During the 3 days classroom, participant will learn the fundamentals of polymer science, practical polymer characterization and testing, extrusion screw designs, tooling qualification, downstream equipment, processing principals, Scientific Extrusion™, critical calibration, process validation guidelines (IQ, OQ PQ), Center-Lining Concept, optimum equipment cleaning, safety, and much more. On the fourth day, students will participate on a hands-on demonstration running the equipment and apply Scientific Extrusion™ using various challenging polymers. The last day is reserved for the final exam. Participants are required to pass the final exam with a grade of 80% or better in order to earn the Extrusion Master Certification™.
We are confident that with this training and following our systematic extrusion process you will be able to transform your extrusion operation from art to science. Consequently, it will provide a system that can consistently produce parts the meet specifications regardless of resin melt index variations.
