Title - Injection Molding Trainer
Engineering Technology - Injection Molding Trainer
STEM learning packages have been designed to provide practical real world problem solving tasks and activities within the classroom or lab environment. These activities will provide an engaging approach that helps instructors show contextualized linkages between Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

The Injection Molding Trainer offers a classroom-based resource for investigating the techniques used to create thermo-plastic products.

Students will see how a good grasp of the science of material properties is needed to select appropriate materials and methods for production. They will also gain an understanding of how mathematics is required to develop production costs and propose selling costs.

This trainer includes a curriculum CD containing theory and practical learning tasks, as well as tutor support materials.

The trainer can also be used in conjunction with our Optional Cloud-based Software , which offers online practical electronics tasks as well as interactive theory presentations, investigations, and assessments, which link directly to the practical activities carried out using this resource.

Typical Topics Include:
  • Plastics
  • Design
  • Materials
