Tuesday, 27 November, 2012


The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) has announced it will run its Introduction to Extrusion Blow Moulding Half-Day Training Course again in 2013. Stephen Barter will again present the course, which will be held on 7 March.

The course aims to give attendees an insight into the extrusion blow moulding process and how they can make better packaging decisions that will increase the success rate of new product introduction. Attendees will also learn how existing products can be refined to improve performance from the moulding shop through to the consumer experience.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Extrusion blow moulding process overview and the associated components.
  • New bottle introduction into manufacturing, the steps required to ensure project success from design to the shelf.
  • How far can we push designs to meet the demands of marketing concepts?
  • How to avoid packaging project failures.
  • Choosing the right bottle type and material grade.
  • Cost reduction opportunities through better design and testing the true capability of bottles.
  • Improving the performance of existing bottles and how you can reduce overall costs.
  • Opportunities to enhance the consumer experience.

The course is designed for packaging technologists, designers, marketing staff, project managers and technical managers, as well as those in roles involving rigid packaging.
