The Australian Institute of Packaging’s (AIP’s) Extrusion Blow Moulding Half-Day Training Course is coming to Brisbane. To be held on 28 May, the course will be presented by Stephen Barter MAIP.

The half-day course will 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. The course will also explore how existing products can be refined to improve performance from the moulding shop through to the consumer experience.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • the steps required to ensure project success from design to shelf,
  • how to avoid packaging project failures,
  • choosing the right bottle type and material grade,
  • cost reduction opportunities through better design,
  • testing the true capability of bottles,
  • improving the performance of existing bottles,
  • opportunities to enhance the consumer experience.

The course is suitable for packaging technologists and designers of all levels, project managers wishing to start or refine packaging projects, process and technical managers, and people in roles involved with rigid packaging. Marketing professionals wishing to understand design options will also benefit from the course.

Stephen Barter MAIP entered the rigid plastics industry in 1986. Having completed his trade qualifications, he moved into extrusion blow mould processing and continues to focus on this field today.
