New Plastic Welding School

The Plastic Welding School conducted its first class in its new 2,500 square foot facility located in Belleview, Florida in early January. The new facility is equipped to handle up to 12 students with the ideal class size being 6-8 students. Hot gas plastic welding equipment has been made available by Laramy Products Co. and Leister Process Technologies for the Hot Gas Welder Training. Extrusion welding equipment has also been provided by Dohle and Leister.

The Plastic Welding School conducts 3 types of classes: a two day introduction to hot gas welding, a three day hot gas welding and extrusion welding; and a five day hot gas welding and extrusion welding. The five day class is a preparatory class leading towards Plastic Welding Certification.

Andy Knight, Senior Instructor for The Welding Institute, re-certified the Plastic Welding School’s Instructor Larry Rowold. The Plastic Welding School is affiliated with the Welding Institute, Cambridge, England, utilizing the CSWIP standards based upon the BSCen standards for Plastic Welding and Certification.
