Defective plastic parts are often only found late in the day and after significant investment of time and money.

This online version of our well established classroom-based course will help you develop an understanding of the causes of part defects and how to avoid them. Common plastic part defects will be explored and solutions developed, enabling attendees to design plastic parts with confidence.

This course will also introduce the application of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) tools to identify issues early in the design cycle.

Who Should Attend?

This course is aimed at all designers and engineers involved with injection moulded parts.

Toolmakers and technicians looking to increase their understanding of the injection moulding process will also benefit from attending this course.


A technical education and a background in the fundamentals of finite element analysis are recommended.

Who Should Attend?

Engineers and Designers looking for optimized designs.


This online course is split into 2 sessions over 2 consecutive days at 2 hours each.

Sessions commence at 9:30am.

Course Fee


Delegates will receive a certificate of attendance.
