Start Date: 10/31/2017 End Date: 11/01/2017 Fees: $350.00
This 1-1/2 day class is designed for new technicians to the molding industry who need a basic understanding of the operations of a molding machine and how to set and prep a tool for production. We will then review how to set up the machine for processing this particular tool and understanding of how pressure and speeds affect the final part. We will be using an all-electric Toshiba press in conjunction with this class. Click here to download the class synopsis  Click  here to download the class synopsis

We will build on this basic knowledge and introduce scientific molding philosophies and how to use this knowledge to achieve better part quality. A Toshiba All Electric machine will be used in process demonstration in conjunction with classroom training.  Click  here to download the class synopsis

RJG - Part Design for Injection Molding
Location: Chicago Training Center
Start Date: 11/07/2017 End Date: 11/09/2017 Fees: $1895.00
This three-day course provides molders, tool makers and design engineers with a common language and the universal knowledge required to successfully design and produce plastic injection molded components. Class topics will address good manufacturing processes for plastic part design, fundamental material characteristics, basic tooling concepts, necessary processing characteristics, molding non-conformities, tolerances and how part design and material selection affect the cost of tooling and piece price. Improving general knowledge of the steps required for part design reduces the risk of less than optimum tooling conditions, thereby minimizing exposure to IM non-conformities that do not meet the quality requirements of the customer.     

Location: Chicago Training Center
Start Date: 11/13/2017 End Date: 11/17/2017 Fees: $2195.00
