The CORE Processor Training system is custom-tailored training specific to your Processing teams specific strengths, weaknesses, as well as each specific plant’s machines, molds, materials and processes.
Plastic 411’s in-house Scientific Molding workshops are 2 full days, from 8AM to 4PM. This is NOT class room training! Both days of training take place directly on the machine.
This class is designed for new to intermediate plastic injection set-up teams that will be regularly setting up presses and making adjustments on the production floor.

The video above outlines the core processor training system. It goes over controller, material mold, process and the Intro to Scientific Molding timeline. It also explains the meaning of CORE.. CORE stands for:
Consultation- Processors take a processor assessment to determine their skill set level. They are also asked to participate in testing that through a specific set of questions helps to determine training needs. In addition, the plant manager is asked to give his own personal assessment as well as answer a series of questions that identifies what equipment, approaches and procedures needing to be addressed to assure that the training is company specific focused.
Orientation-Training direction is defined based on the data collected by myself and the participating company. Training objectives and depth are defined such as: standardized set up, quick change over (NASCAR), controller training, process set up, process development, process control, process recording and monitoring, scientific based protocols and procedures. In addition, a free consultation is offered during the training to assess the company’s needs and direction.
Reinforce- Once the assessments are complete, a training plan is developed and implemented. The training is a 2-day production floor intensive class that teaches each team to implement the core values. Training utilizes your plant’s own in-house equipment to instill real world on-the-job processor training. Classroom training is only 20% of the overall training session.
Evolve- 30 days after the class, a follow up conference call is offered. During this call, growth within the team is evaluated and advice is given to help the teams’ skillset to keep evolving.
