Penn College Hands-On Workshop

May 22 and 23 in Williamsport

Poka-Yoke with ARM in California and Minnesota

Rotomolders and suppliers came together to trouble-shooting floor problems, learn from one another, and network at these June 2015 events. Both meetings featured a panel of rotomolders and suppliers addressing common and unique problems in rotomolding.


Poka-yoke is the Japanese term for mistake-proofing. Panelists shared examples of how to detect, define, design, develop, and deploy mistake-proofing..

ARM's Regional Meetings are inexpensive and always get rave reviews from attendees.

Testimonials from last year's regional meetings: "I feel the group interaction and problem and success sharing is very valuable at these meetings."

And: "I like the format as it is presented. The people that you reach at this meeting are given an opportunity to interact with other molders and suppliers that they may not normally get to speak with."

And: "Well presented and attended. It was a very informative and enjoyable event. I hope to be able to attend more in the future."



Buena Park, California


Registrants were treated to presentations on design, machinery, tooling, dry-blend, pulverizing and supplier qualifications. Representatives from CARB were in attendance to answer questions about current and forthcoming emissions standards.

Attendees thought the hotel was a "great location in terms of convenience" and appreciated having a meeting that required little travel. Others noted they were already looking forward to attending the next California Meeting.

Williamsport, Pennsylvania


Penn College conducted a two-day hands-on meeting proudly co-sponsored by ARM International. Topics included different moldable materials and their properties, mold use and abuse, heating and cooling, and more.

"This was the best seminar/hands-on workshop I've attended in years," said Terrance Gillian of Paladin Sales. "I and about 25 others were very impressed. We all learned valuable information that could be applied immediately back at the shop."

Rolling Meadows, Illinois


Attendees listened to sessions on resin choice, tooling, controlling wall thickness and more. The What's Your Problem? discussion opened the floor for all attendees to troubleshoot topics of their choice and was a favorite among many popular presentations.

Survey respondents noted "I thought everything was well presented and certainly came away with a better understanding of what we could do to better our process." One registrant called the Midwest Meeting the "best meeting that I have attended." 100% of survey respondents said that the Midwest Meeting met or exceeded their expectations.
