KNOW-HOW AND TRAINING

Deepen the technical knowledge of your employees to make sure you are getting the best out of your MAPLAN machines. The combination of know-how and optimisation offers real added value for practical implementation. We offer a wide range of training courses from straight forward seminars for operators and engineers to individual coaching sessions.

USER TRAINING – BASIC

Aim of the seminar

After the seminar, the participants have the necessary skills to put MAPLAN machines into operation, as well as to start production with a built-in mould and existing recipe. Furthermore, minor
process adjustments can be done.

Seminar contents

  • Structure of an injection moulding machine
  • Correct start-up and shutdown of the machine
  • Basic functions of the MAP.commander C6 control unit
  • Confguration of the closing unit
  • Configuration of the injection unit

Seminar duration

1 Day

Number of participants

Max. 8 persons

Target group

MAPLAN new entrants, beginners, lateral entrants

USER TRAINING – ADVANCED

Aim of the seminar

In the ADVANCED training, the knowledge about elastomer technology is consolidated to provide a better understanding of the processes. The newly acquired knowledge is practically used to create complex cycles. The operating mode and configuration of special functions will be trained. This enables to make optimum use of the high performance of the MAP.commander C6.

Seminar contents

  • Basics of elastomer technology
  • Structure of an injeciton moulding machine
  • Logic and operation of the MAP.commander C6 control unit
  • Entire cycle configuration
  • Conguration of special functions and options
  • Basics of maintenance and service

Seminar duration

1 day

Number of participants

Max. 8 persons

Target group

Foremen, shift leader, machine setter, experienced operator, sampling engineer

SERVICE & MAINTENANCE

Aim of the seminar

After the seminar, the participants will be able to properly service MAPLAN machines and keep them in a proper condition. Knowledge transfer about the electrical system and hydraulics of the machine are an substantial part of the training. Therefore, regular maintenance can be carried out independently.

Seminar contents

  • Structure of the injection moulding machine
  • Handling the electrical circuit diagram
  • Working with the hydraulic plan
  • Daily maintenance
  • Recurring maintenance

Seminar duration

1 day

Number of participants

Max. 8 persons

Target group

Foremen, shift leader, machine setter, maintenance and service staff

RUBBER TECHNOLOGY: SETTING-UP AND SAMPLING OF MOULDS

Aim of the seminar

This workshop provides the necessary knowledge to professionally install a new mould. In practical training on the machine, a proper sampling is carried out together with solutions for frequently occurring processing errors.

Seminar contents

  • Basics of elastomer technology
  • Structure and operation of the MAP.commander C6 control unit
  • Aufbau und Bedienung der MAPLAN-Steuerung
  • Complex cycle configuration
  • Configuration of special functions and options/li>
  • Process monitoring and export options
  • Basics of maintenance & service

Seminar duration

1 day

Number of participants

Target group

Foremen, shift leader, machine setter, sampling engineer

PROCESS OPTIMISATION - BASICS

Aim of the seminar

After the seminar, participants can identify potential for optimization in processes and take appropriate measures. They will be familiar with the most
common error patterns and how to fix them.

Seminar contents

  • Structure of the injection molding machine and importance of the individual assemblies for the process
  • Identification of the most important process variables
  • Effects of parameter changes
  • Design of experiments
  • Recognition of injection moulding faults
  • Process control with the help of integrated control tools
  • Troubleshooting

Seminar duration

1 day

Number of participation

Max. 8 persons

Target group

Foremen, shift leader, machine setter, sampling engineer

INDIVIDUAL OPTIMISATION TRAINING

COACHING

The seminar goals and training content can be individually designed and designed as needed.

Duration of the training

Depending on seminar contents

Number of participation

Max. 4 persons

Target group

TECHNOLOGY CENTRE

The MAPLAN technology centre – our domain for perfecting processes and technologies. Come and see MAPLAN’s superior technology for yourself and pay us a visit. The engineers in our team of experts are happy to help at our headquarters in Austria, as well as in the UK, Italy, the Netherlands and the US for presentations, testing customer concepts and organising training sessions.

DAYS OF TECHNOLOGY

The MAPLAN Days of Technology, which take place regularly across the world in our headquarters and branch offices, focus on networking and the exchange of experience between experts. MAPLAN offers an excellent program of presentations by experts, specialists and partner companies from the rubber industry. The high-quality presentations are complemented by an in-house exhibition for partners and are rounded off with an attractive networking program.

In 2020, the event will be back in the headquarters in Kottingbrunn from 25.-26. of June. Are you interested?
