Automotive Plastic Design using CATIA V5

Domain : Design

Pre-requisites : For Mechanical, Aerospace & Automotive Engineers

Introduction

A Quick Overview

CATIA V5 is a very versatile tool. CATIA V5 is used in the design of products and also finds use in the design of manufacturing tools, wiring harness, and mold design.


Automotive Plastic Design using CATIA V5 deals with the plastic component design in automobiles. The course gives you a brief overview of the different types of plastics used in automobiles. Students will understand the need to use injection moulding technique in plastic component manufacturing technique in this course.


The course helps you understand the CATIA software from the basics of sketcher workbench to advanced surface design which helps you to understand how to design plastic components based on industry-standard prerequisites. 


In this course, you will learn about core and cavity creation for plastic components design. Design of engineering features like a dog house, ribs, and heat stakes, design of automotive plastic components based on injection moulding requirements and design of engineering features along with a few plastic component design projects, like -  Switch bezel design from given Class A, Coin holder design, and Side door hand rest design, to name a few. 


Upon completion of this course, the student will have a complete understanding of automotive plastics, injection moulding process, plastic design process, design rules, engineering feature design, and also complete plastic product development.

The course that you studied in college was designed years ago and does not take into account the current market trends or what the industry expects from graduates. Our courses have been designed in consultation with industry experts and leading academicians. Skill-Lync courses are geared to help you find employment as soon as you complete the coursework. This is possible only because of the projects that you will complete as part of your curriculum, in your college you might have done one major and one minor project. But, each module in a Skill-Lync course has a corresponding project, and these projects are industry-oriented. Which means that if you were to look at the project that an engineer at a top OEM is working on, it will be similar to a Skill-Lync project, the only difference being the scale of the project. 


Simply put - there's a world of a difference between what you have studied at your college and what you will get trained in when you study at Skill-Lync. 


You will have an edge over your peers by working extensively on industry-relevant projects, practice on tools and software that will set you apart and help you in getting ahead of the competition.
