Training and consulting company RJG, Inc., Traverse City, Michigan, has announced a new series of injection molding tips, tricks and how-to videos available on YouTube.
Led by industry experts, the videos address common issues and questions, such as: What actually causes flash? How do you size a nozzle tip? How do you achieve a fill only part? The RJG YouTube channel and the new series include these recent additions: “Injection Molding Fill Only Procedure,” “Understanding the Terminology of Different Molding Machines” and “What Actually Causes Flash in Injection Molded Parts?”

In addition to the how-to videos, RJG is offering five new online training courses: Accelerated Tool Launch, Online Intro to Part Design, Online Intro to Mold Design, Online Intro to Machine Performance and Online Intro to Systematic Molding for LSR. These live, interactive courses are led by industry experts and allow participants to experience RJG training without the need to travel or miss more work than necessary.
Accelerated Tool Launch focuses on using simulation software to forecast process set-up sheets so one can make good parts from the first shot without rework. Experience the future of streamlined tool launch technologies and highly efficient collaboration.
Online Intro to Part Design provides basic knowledge of the steps used to design and produce injection molded components. Class topics address an overview of fundamental material characteristics, basic tooling concepts, necessary processing characteristics and molding non-conformities. The course also will show how some molding non-conformities are related to part design.
Online Intro to Mold Design provides common language and basic knowledge of how injection molds are designed so they can meet cycle time, cost and part quality. Class topics address good manufacturing practices (GMP) for part design, including fundamental material characteristics, necessary processing techniques and molding non-conformities, with a focus on robust mold design.
Online Intro to Machine Performance covers how to perform injection molding machine diagnostics and improve overall machine performance. Participants will walk away with tools to generate a predictive failure schedule, conduct machine performance tests, do preventative maintenance and perform advanced diagnostics through process monitoring data.
Online Intro to Systematic Molding for LSR provides a foundation for understanding the injection molding process for LSR and the critical practice of good production techniques. Participants will grasp the elements and variables involved in the injection molding process for LSR and learn key terminology that will help them communicate and solve molding problems.
