Plastic Technologies announces 2014 US, EU training seminars
The training will focus on three areas of key interest-PET Technologies and Applications, Plastic Packaging for Hot-Fill/Aseptic Beverages and Design of Experiments Practical Application.
"PTI has a long history of helping companies successfully commercialize new packaging for well-known global brands. Our annual training seminars enable us to deliver the knowledge our professionals have amassed over the past 25 years to a broader audience," said Ron Puvak, director of business development and marketing, PTI.
Classes will be taught at PTI's U.S. corporate headquarters in Holland, Ohio, as well as its European location in Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland. Subjects, dates and locations are:
PET Technologies and Applications
March 17-20 (Switzerland)
March 25-27 (Ohio)
September 9-11 (Ohio)
November 17-20 (Switzerland)
December 2-4 (Ohio)
Plastic Packaging for Hot-Fill/Aseptic Beverages
June 17-18 (Ohio)
September 30-October 1 (Switzerland)
October 21-22 (Ohio)
Design of Experiments Practical Application
June 10-13 (Ohio)
November 11-14 (Ohio)
Additionally, the March and November Switzerland dates also will have separate one-day add on training modules for PET barrier materials and PET recycling.
The multi-day PET Technologies and Applications training program will include instruction on material/resin properties, material handling and drying, injection and blow molding basics, package development fundamentals, heat-set technologies, quality assurance and testing, and the latest recycling information. This training targets those professionals seeking fundamental PET knowledge, or those who would benefit from a refresher course.
The two-day Plastic Packaging for Hot-Fill/Aseptic Beverages training module will include the latest technical information on PET, as well as polypropylene, bioplastics and other materials that are suited for these applications. Also included in this module will be the basics of non-carbonated packages, beverage packaging material compatibility and associated filling technologies. (A recommended prerequisite for this course is a basic knowledge of PET, including properties and processing. This is covered in the PET Technologies and Applications training.)
Design of Experiments (DOE) is a structure methodology for discovering and quantifying cause and effect relationship between process inputs and outputs. The seminar will combine theory and hands-on lab work to prepare you to unlock the secrets to your processes.
