If you are one of our Customers or are in the process of acquiring one of our instruments, and would like to learn more about the equipment in regards of daily operation, preventive maintenance, troubleshooting procedures or calculations, definitively the Users Training Meeting (UTM) is the right course for you.

The UTM program is organized in Valencia and alternated with other venues such as China or the United States.


Within the course the program is designed to provide a response to questions like:

  • Which are the basic polyolefin characterization techniques?
  • How can I operate my instrument?
  • How can I improve the handling of my instrument?
  • What should I do as preventive maintenance?
  • Which steps should I follow for troubleshooting?
  • How should I interpret my results?


The program may be focused on different topics depending on the instruments the attendees are interested in:

  • Introduction to Polyolefin Characterization. General Techniques. (Only in Valencia editions).
  • Hardware and Software Overview. Maintenance Philosophy.
  • Techniques Description: Manual Screen + Process Data + Results.
  • Instrument Daily Operation:
    • Control Software.
    • Calculations Software.
    • Results Understanding and Applications.
  • Process Data Interpretation and Troubleshooting.

Aimed at

  • Instrument Users, Analysts and Technicians.
  • Laboratory Managers, who are interested in extending their knowledge in the field.

Who should attend

When an instrument is acquired a customized training is held in the customer’s facilities. It is though highly recommended to combine both this training on-site and the Users Training Meeting.

Current Customers who have been using their instrument for long, may also find interesting this program as it will allow them to refresh their knowledge and have the last information in this field.
