Manufacturing Processes 3 eLearning Features Engaging Multimedia

Amatrol’s extensive, thorough multimedia covers manufacturing processes basics such as plastics technology. Interactive screens paired with instructive graphics teach an array of plastics topics from injection mold operations to blow molding. Learners can then apply this theoretical knowledge to immediate hands-on skills. For example, learners study polymers and polymerization and then create their own plastics material using its chemical components. This combination of theory and practice ingrains concepts in a learner’s mind and makes more advanced topics easier to comprehend.  (References 94-MP3T)
