Training Spotlight

Process Match-Troubleshooting Workshop
Students will learn how to document an existing process and transfer it to another machine utilizing calculations and conversions to move the process. The class enforces the importance of thinking about the plastic variables when troubleshooting a process. There is plenty of classroom time for the students to learn the core Systematic Molding concepts as well as plenty of hands-on lab time. The students will learn how to examine a set up sheet for robust process-ability and identify mold performance requirements. The objective is to match that process again and again using plastic variables as your guide and not the machine variables that will always differ.

May 24-26 - Traverse City, MI
June 14-16 - Rancho Cucamonga, CA

RJG Technology Days
RJG’s Technology Day seminar focuses on systematic processing strategies and advanced processing technologies that will allow you to consistently manufacture the highest quality parts. Molders are finding that three key components provide positive results: cavity pressure sensors, process control systems and employee training. Individually, each of these components have a positive effect on part quality, when combined the results can be staggering. This seminar is a must for anyone responsible for the development and manufacture of plastic parts or directly involved in part quality issues. The methods & technology we teach dove-tail with most “green” initiatives and our training can often be offset through green initiative grants

Upcoming Technology Days
June 28 - Montgomery, PA
July 12 - West Hanover, NJ
September 20 - Chihuahua, Mexico
November 8 - Monterrey, Mexico

Changes to piezoelectric sensors allow interchangeability
RJG announces changes to its popular Lynx Piezo Sensor line aimed at increasing flexibility to the user. Current Lynx Piezo sensors come with a sensor mated to a uniquely calibrated Lynx sensor case. The new Lynx Piezo Sensor configuration allows the Lynx Piezo case to be moved to other sensors as needed while maintaining the ability to identify the mold. Currently when customers order Lynx Piezo Sensors they receive a calibrated sensor, case and cable The sensor and case must be kept together to ensure proper operation. When a customer orders the new Lynx Piezo Sensor configuration they receive a calibrated Piezo sensor, calibrated Lynx case and cable. These can be kept together or be used with other sensors, cases and cables as needed. In addition, the sensor or case can be sent in separately for certification and recalibration.
