• Standard or custom programs to meet your needs

    • Husky offers professional training programs targeted at improving productivity via knowledge transfer. Our training model follows a four-step process.
      • Training needs are assessed. An optional training needs assessment test is available
      • Agreement on recommended training solution
      • Delivery and completion of training
      • Post-training follow-up testing (recommended option)
      Programs are designed to teach theory and demonstrate practical skills aimed at maximizing the skills of your staff. Training is available either on-site or at a Husky training center. Including three main categories, these programs convey best practices for the specific area of concentration.
      • Basic Operator – safe operation and daily maintenance
      • Maintenance – practices to ensure the machine is maintained per Husky best practices
      • Injection Process – for the advanced user in the plant to improve machine performance

      Courses are delivered using interactive multimedia presentations and practical exercises using a machine in our training lab.

      Course Descriptions

      Maintenance (4 days) – This course provides maintenance instruction for the Husky injection molding machine in the following areas: Injection molding safety, How to read schematics, and electrical and mechanical troubleshooting of each step of the injection molding cycle.

      Operation (4 days) – This course provides operation and set-up instruction for the Husky injection molding machine in the following areas: Injection molding safety, Component identification, Using the operator interface, Safe start up and shut down, and Setup and optimization of the injection molding cycle.

      PET Preform Molding – Basic Processing (4 days) – This course is designed to provide you with an in-depth knowledge about PET characteristics with a strong emphasis on processing and system optimization. The objective is to help you understand the inter-relationship between resin characteristics, processing conditions and product quality. Structured methods are laid out to optimize both the dry cycle, as well as the processing sequences. A thorough review of PET resin characteristics, the drying process, auxiliary services, extrusion principles, injection set-up guidelines, optimization opportunities, and system tuning for acetaldehyde (AA) reduction is provided. Successful completion of an Operation course is a prerequisite.

      PET Preform Molding – Advanced Workshop (3 days) – This course is designed to provide expert processors with the opportunity to discuss problems and to learn techniques to process defects out of the PET preform. The course includes: Review of the Basic Processing course material, Applying structured methods for optimum quality and cycle performance, Troubleshooting common PET preform defects, and Statistical Process Control. Successful completion of the Basic Processing course is a prerequisite. Students are recommended to register for the Advanced Workshop after having spent several months applying the techniques taught in the Basic Processing course.

      PET Mold Maintenance (4 days) – This course provides basic Preventive and Corrective maintenance instruction for the Husky PET mold and hot runner.

      Altanium Heat Controllers (2 days) – This course provides Operation and Maintenance instruction for the Husky Altanium hot runner controller.

      Injection Processing - Basic (4 days) – This course provides processing instruction for the Husky injection molding machine in the following areas: Resin characteristics, Injection molding cycle and best practices, Setting up a molding process, and Monitoring and correcting process parameters.

      Injection Processing – Advanced (4 days) – This course provides processing instruction for the Husky injection molding machine in the following areas: Supervising the production process, Running a Design of Experiment (DOE), Calculating a theoretical process cycle, and Analyzing process parameters for divergence from the theoretical optimum cycle. Successful completion of the Basic course is a prerequisite.

      Auxiliary Hardware Operation (2 days) – Husky offers a complete line of equipment designed to support the injection molding process. This includes resin dryers, clamp enclosure dehumidifiers, chilled water systems, and material handling equipment. This is a Preventive and Corrective maintenance course.
