During the training initiative at Beaumont, the three previous training seminars have been extensively revamped, and Beaumont has also created two additional courses based on industry feedback and demands with plans for adding two more over the next year. BTI’s Technical Director, David Hoffman, says “By taking a critical look at our existing seminars and our core competencies, we were able to refocus the course content and develop more specific training seminars based on our areas of expertise.”

Beaumont is quick to point out that their seminars are not more of the same process related training seminars already available in the industry. Rather Beaumont’s seminars focus on design through production, and emphasize the in-depth relationships between plastic flow, the mold, processing, and part quality. Students will learn to think through complex questions and problems while considering all variables so that they can engineer solutions based on science...not habits.

The first public course, Seminar 1: Optimizing Mold Startup, Debug & Qualifications, is being held on July 27th and 28th, 2011. Monthly seminars are scheduled throughout the year with specific schedules for members of the Manufacturer’s Association of Plastic Processors (MAPP), of which Beaumont is a corporate sponsor.

Spaces are limited and allocated on a “first come” basis. For a complete list of Seminars and dates please visit You can register for the training online or by contacting Beaumont directly at 814/899-6390 x 139 or email
