Polymer Process

A Polymer Process Technician's primary job is to set up, monitor and troubleshoot plastic injection-molding machines, which requires expertise of materials, specific tools, and equipment. Troubleshooting tasks might include dealing with inconsistent material, faulty equipment, human error, and preventing defects from occurring.

Moreover, they ensure injection molding machines, auxiliary equipment and connected automated systems are set to regulation parameters, meet quality standards and all production goals.

As experts dealing with materials and equipment, PPTs provide feedback on mold design and assist tool and die makers to dial in each mold for optimal cycle time and quality and are able to apply all aspects of scientific molding.
