RJG has received a new consignment from Krauss-Maffei Corporation for their Gibsonville, North Carolina training facility. The KraussMaffei PX series all-electric injection molding machine is a 50 metric ton press with 29,370 psi of injection pressure and .84 ounces of barrel capacity.
“We are very pleased to have a KraussMaffei all-electric machine at the RJG facility to help with the training of their customers in the market to educate them to be better molders,” said Paul Caprio, President of Krauss-Maffei Corporation. “We feel that the exposure we will get at RJG’s facility will help both of our companies for the future.”
The machine will be used in RJG’s Essentials, Systematic Molding, DECOUPLED MOLDING® Workshop, and Master Molder® I and II courses. Students will be able to interact with the machine in a variety of ways in order to put into practice what they learned in the classroom. This hands-on learning increases retention and provides students with tangible knowledge they can bring back to the plant floor.
“We are excited to partner with KraussMaffei,” said Marty Key, Consultant/Trainer at RJG. “The consignment of their newest electric machine to our NC training facility will allow our students to receive hands-on training with the industry’s newest technology. We thank KraussMaffei for their contribution to our lab and dedication to advancing technology and learning within the injection molding industry.”
