Center for Plastics Processing Technology accepting regional partners for industrial projects
Established in 1992, the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Center for Plastics Processing Technology assists regional plastics industries through advanced technology, production and project completion. The CPPT is equipped with advanced design and simulation software, several industrial-grade thermoforming, high-powered lasers, injection molding and a number of testing and evaluation instruments.
Currently, the CPPT is accepting industrial projects in the area of laser and injection molding. CPPT’s specialties include part and mold design, process simulation, quality tests and evaluations, and problem-solving.
While any regional industry is welcome to partner with the CPPT, special attention is given to the injection and laser processing industries. Projects are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and are free of charge. The accepted projects are completed by qualified students, with faculty supervision, according to the directions given by the industries.
The CPPT respects the confidentiality of the project and industry through a signed confidentiality agreement. For more information, contact Dr. Majid Tabrizi, director of CPPT, at (608) 342-1115 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
