Plastic Blow & Extrusion Molding Training System for High School | Hands-On Skills

Learning System: 96-PLS2

Amatrol’s 96-PLS2 Plastics Technology 2 Learning System adds to the 96-PLS1T to teach plastics blow molding and extrusion. Blow molding is a popular method for processing plastics, consuming about 10% of all plastics worldwide, due to its economic cost and low finishing requirements. Extrusion is used for two dimensional shapes like pipe, tubing, etc. and can also be used in combination. This unit introduces basic blow molding operations, including design and extrusion operations.

Learning Topics

  • Blow Molding Process, Safety, Operation, & Troubleshooting
  • Blow Mold Design
  • Blow Molding Materials and Advanced Design
  • Extrusion Process, Safety, Operation, & Troubleshooting

Hands-On Skills with Real Industrial Components

The 96-PLS2 includes a clamping system, extrusion die for use with blow molding, pneumatic blow system, starter mold for blow molding, extrusion die, interactive curriculum for both theory and lab, and a teacher’s assessment guide. Students will learn skills such as creating a plastics part using a blow molding operation, troubleshooting blow molds, designing a blow mold using CAD/CAM, creating a blow mold using a CNC machine, creating a plastics part using an extrusion operation, and testing an extrusion for uniform diameter.

Interactive Blow & Extrusion Molding eLearning Curriculum

Amatrol's blow & extrusion molding training system for high school features interactive eLearning curriculum that integrates various types of learning methods to create an engaging, effective learning experience. Amatrol’s multimedia eLearning curriculum includes text with voiceovers, videos, 3D animations, pictures, and interactive activities, quizzes, and self-reviews. Specific blow & extrusion molding topics covered include: blow molding process, safety, operation, & troubleshooting; blow mold design; blow molding materials and advanced design; and extrusion process, safety, operation, & troubleshooting. Within these topics, learners will study objectives like creating a plastics part using a blow molding operation; designing a blow mold using CAD/CAM; and creating a plastics part using an extrusion operation.

Free Learning Management System (LMS)

Amatrol eLearning is easy-to-use for both students and instructors. Its web-based interface is simple to navigate and available on any WebGL-compatible Internet browser. Instructors love Amatrol eLearning for its simple, yet sophisticated Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS allows instructors to create custom courses, monitor student participation, track course progress, assess knowledge levels prior to a course, and test knowledge levels after completion. Learners appreciate the fact that they can start and stop as needed, moving through each Amatrol course at their own pace. If a self-review reveals that they didn’t understand a particular topic as well as they thought they did, they can revisit it before moving on.
