Fall 2022 Seminar
Do not miss this unique opportunity to attend and participate in a one-day seminar on extrusion science. The intent of these seminars is to be educational, effective, and efficient at an economical price. The seminars will be strategically located in areas of heavy extrusion populations, to limit attendee’s required travel time.
Presented by Tim Groth, President of Extrusion Solutions North, LLC. Tim has been in the extrusion industry for 38 years. His knowledge ranges from plant start up, material science, tooling, development, troubleshooting, applying Lean Manufacturing to extrusion process and training. Tim has authored multiple extrusion articles and is a contracted Penn College of Technology Instructor.
"I’ve had the pleasure of working and experiencing Tim’s talents through our engagements as an OEM.
Tim has been steadfast as the consummate professional and problem-solver. He brings solutions to complex material and extrusion processes that have placed more emphasis on the ‘science,’ quality control and has reduced the dependency on the ‘art’ and nuances of knowledge only understood by the most experienced operators.
He has been a trusted resource within our company on design for manufacture with our engineering teams, tolerance stacking which has helped us successfully create new components with minimal trial and error that has saved everyone on costs and exceeding deadline targets.
We look forward to continuing to engage and pull-on Tim’s expertise and knowledge in the future."
"Tim and I were colleagues at a previous employer. Tim helped train my team after we started our new site. Tim really impressed me with his ability to coach employees and his ability to perform the work himself when appropriate. What impressed me most was how Tim ran his site. The equipment at his facility were truly antiques. Tim never allowed this to be an excuse. He optimized the equipment and tooling to run some of the most complicated and intricate parts I have ever seen extruded with very little scrap. The level of detail he established with his tooling team set the bar for a world class extrusion site.
Many of us have dealt with so-called “experts” that can recite from text books, regurgitate what others have implemented or suggest that you buy new equipment or tooling when their suggestions for improvement fail. Tim has the knowledge and experience to troubleshoot and improve the tooling and equipment that is in place. If an investment is needed, Tim will help you establish which investments will offer the best ROI.
In addition to traditional extrusion Tim is also well versed in foam extrusion."
