RJG and Canadian Plastics Magazine Partner to Offer Courses in Canada
RJG and Canadian Plastics Magazine are working in partnership to offer training to injection molders in Canada. Canadian Plastics is offering a Math for Molders course September 16 at Humber College in Toronto, and RJG is offering an Injection Molding Essentials course September 17-18 at the same location. The Math for Molders course was developed by RJG and is intended for anyone who needs to better understand the math used by molders who process using systematic molding (scientific molding) techniques. The Injection Molding Essentials course is designed for individuals new to injection molding, or anyone who wants to improve injection molding understanding. It provides a solid foundation for understanding the injection molding process and the critical practice of good production techniques.

Attendees who sign up for both courses can receive a 5% discount on the RJG Injection Molding Essentials class. To take advantage of the discount, first register for the Math for Molders course here. In your confirmation letter you will receive a promotional code to enter when registering for the Injection Molding Essentials class on the RJG web site.

Save Time and Money with RJG Equipped Tool Tryout Shops
Many molders and their customers use the services of just tryout shops when instrumenting new tools with RJG sensors. They then send a Process Engineer armed with an RJG eDART System to the shop in order to optimize the new process and create a process template to transfer with the tool. This is a time-consuming and expensive scenario. Why not consider instead equipping the shop with an RJG eDART System and training so they can create and optimize process templates for you? If your mold build/tryout shops are outside the USA, the shop can work with the RJG office in their region for support and to obtain the necessary system training in local language. Many companies have chosen this scenario for the savings in time & travel as well as ease of use. Contact your Account Coordinator for additional details. Or click here to see a list of RJG Certified Tryout Shops.
