RJG Teaches Part Design for Injection Molding
RJG, Traverse City, MI/USA, provider of injection molding training, technology and resources, offers a new training course: Part Design for Injection Molding. The new 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 (GMP) for plastic part design, fundamental material characteristics, basic tooling concepts, necessary processing characteristics, molding non-conformities and tolerances. It will also discuss how part design and material selection affect the cost of tooling and piece price. The course discusses injection molded part designs of simple to complex parts, from the plastic’s point of view (rather than the traditional and unreliable machine’s point of view). During training participants will utilize industry examples as reference, and then dive into evaluating and improving their designs. Attendees will work in groups to examine parts for flaws and discuss how those design flaws should be fixed.
RJG provides both general interest and specialized training for injection molding professionals at all levels. Support and training are provided world-wide at RJG Regional Sales Offices throughout the world and via the Internet.
