Got Scientific Molding?
"Although Medivative’s roots in injection molding extend back many decades, scientific molding through training with RJG has enabled some of the most significant improvements to our plastics processing approach. Through the education in methodical, scientific techniques and tools provided via RJG training and equipment we are now able to take scientific molding concepts and implement them in a systemic manner, providing measurable real-world improvements, further allowing us to grow as a world class organization!" Steven Smock- Medivative Technologies, Inc.

Reminder! RJG Certified Tryout Shops Available to Assist with Your New-Tool Needs
To see a list of currently certified Tryout Shops, click here. If you are interested in becoming a Certified Tryout Shop, contact the training department or call 231-933-8175. A specialized training program is required, as well as purchase of an RJG eDART System™, and at least one sensored tool for use during the certification training. Once certified, RJG will add your business to the list on our web site, and you can market your certification as a means to attract more business. It is a great value-added service for the many molders who use the RJG eDART System and want to be able to quickly match process templates without having to send someone to their tryout shop to create the templates. And for your customers who don’t use the eDART System & sensored tools, your extensive scientific knowledge of processing from the plastic’s point of view can help avert bad tool designs and other potential “headaches” for both you & your customers.
