RJG’s Part & Mold Design for Injection Molding course provides molders, tool makers, quality team members and design engineers with a common language and the universal knowledge required to successfully design and produce plastic injection molds and molded components. Improving general knowledge of the steps required for part design reduces the risk of less than optimum tooling conditions, therefore minimizing exposure to injection molding non-conformities that do not meet the quality requirements of the customer.Class topics address good manufacturing processes (GMP) for: plastic part design, fundamental material characteristics, robust mold designs, necessary processing characteristics, molding non-conformities, and tolerances. The course also discusses how part design and material selection affect the cost of tooling and piece price. Since hands-on-learning is a core component of our training, we utilize industry examples as reference, then dive into evaluating and improving designs. Attendees will work in groups to examine parts to identify where non-conformities will occur and methods to improve those risks.
The objective of this course is to have each student obtaining the necessary language and core knowledge required to successfully communicate or perform tasks associated with designing parts, robust injection molds that meet cycle time, cost, part quality, and lead time requirements.
