Penn College’s Plastics & Innovation Resource Center this week presented its annual Hands-On Rotational Molding course, a two-day seminar for those working in the plastics industry. The course gives participants practical experience in combination with classroom training on higher-level technology in rotational molding. The sessions demonstrate the connection between material preparation, molding and final part quality, and allow participants to network and share experiences with staff from other companies facing similar day-to-day issues.
