LS Mtron Injection Molding Machines USA, Duluth, Georgia, has formed a partnership with RJG Inc. to bring cutting-edge training in scientific molding to RJG’s new facility located on the campus of Rowan-Cabarrus Community College (RCCC) in Kannapolis, North Carolina. RJG took delivery of the all-electric LS Mtron WIZ-55E molding machine in early December 2022 to prepare for its first class, which begins the week of January 9, 2023.
The LS Mtron WIZ-55E is one of the E-Series all-electric molding machines introduced by the company in 2016. Models range in capacity from 20 to 950 US tons, combining the benefits of servo electric technology with an injection speed/pressure control algorithm, conformance to safety standards, a 5-point toggle clamping system designed by FEA analysis and a high-speed injection molding mechanism. The WIZ-55E is high-precision, clean and energy-saving.
Peter Gardner, business director of LS Mtron Injection Molding Machines North America, said, “Placing our WIZ-55E machine at the RJG training facility has marketing benefits to be sure, but more than that, we firmly believe that US molders need to do all they can to develop a skilled workforce that is knowledgeable in the principles of injection molding and beyond.”
Gardner added that LS Mtron has a large customer base in the Southeastern US, particularly supporting the automotive molding operations of South Korean automakers. “We are encouraging our customers to take advantage of this new program where they can receive the training and technologies to improve and validate their molding processes,” he said.
RJG courses offered at RCCC include Mold and Part Design, Fundamentals of Injection Molding, Decoupled Molding Workshops and Master Molder I and II. RJG provides the opportunity for any enrolled students at RCCC to come through its classes free of charge.
