Davis-Standard will host its “Basics of Plastics Extrusion” seminar, in a virtual fashion, from 6 to 8 October 2020. This three-day interactive seminar promises to cover the fundamentals of plastics extrusion, composition and properties of various polymers, and the mechanics of essential downstream processes. Session topics will include extruder components, temperature control, control systems, maintenance practices, screw and die design, among others. In addition, all participants will see a virtual bore scoping and lab demonstrations and receive a virtual tour of Davis-Standard’s manufacturing and technical facilities.

“This seminar has been extremely beneficial to customers who seek to improve the knowledge base of their engineering and operational teams to strengthen overall productivity,” explained John Christiano, Davis-Standard’s vice president of Extrusion Technology. “Although the seminar will be in virtual format this year, it still contains the same amount of robust instruction and interaction with our engineering and technical teams. We look forward to an outstanding session.”

Davis said daily instruction will begin at 10 AM and conclude at 3 PM for a total of 15 training hours. The fee is US$ 695 per person with a 10% discount given for groups of three or more from the same company. Course books and materials are included in the fee. Class size is limited to promote student and teacher interaction.
