RJG's Training Excellence Award Winners!

RJG created the RJG Training Excellence Award as a way to recognize clients for their commitment to the RJG Master MolderSM Certification program. RJG Chairman, Matt Groleau presented the award to Mike Zacharias, President, on behalf of Extreme Tool and Engineering in Wakefield, Michigan and to Mark Sturtevandt, President, and John Porter, Vice President of Operations, on behalf of iMARK Molding in Woodville, Wisconsin. Awards were presented at the Manufacturers Association for Plastics Processors (MAPP) Benchmarking and Best Practices Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana this October.

"RJG has been a strong industry partner for Extreme Tool for over 10 years. Our initial introduction to them was via our own clients, but we realized very quickly that RJG was EXACTLY the kind of company we try to align with from a technology, training, and support standpoint. Quite simply, we would not be the company we are today without their support. We have been an RJG certified mold build and tryout shop for over 10 years, and I can't imagine looking forward without them beside us. We are VERY proud of this award, appreciate it, and look forward to creating additional client successes together. Thank you to ALL at RJG for your help in making Extreme what it is today!"

Mike Zacharias
President, Extreme Tool and Engineering

"RJG’s technology and training capability has helped transform iMARK into a top tier injection molder second to none! Monitoring cavity pressure and actual press outputs has had a meaningful impact on our business, profitability and in the knowledge and confidence our technical people possess. The skill and knowledge learned in the Systematic Molding and Decoupled II Molding Workshop classes apply directly to initial process development, validation and process monitoring in production. It gives our customers tremendous confidence in our capability. Our people are extremely proud of the recognition from RJG that this award acknowledges, and all of the hard work that went into earning it! Personally, I have worked with few companies that have such a robust training capability and outstanding technical support as RJG, and we look forward to staying abreast with the new technologies they bring forward!"

John Porter,
Vice President of Operations, iMARK Molding

4000# Multi Channel Sensors Now Available
RJG now offers a 4000# sensor for the Multi Channel Strain Gage system. This low profile, robust hardware system simplifies in-mold installations for molds with four or more sensors and saves real estate on the mold. The multi channel cavity pressure system, unique to RJG, allows injection molders to connect up to eight strain gage sensors to one connection point on the mold. Also available in 125#, 500#, and 2000# force rating. Contact us for details.
The Sensor eValuator
Now released! The new Sensor eValuator provides tool builders and molders alike a way to test up to 30 in-mold sensors at one time for proper operation. Testing sensors prior to putting the mold into production can save a considerable amount of lost production and troubleshooting time. The product offers an easy-to-use interface on a tablet. This item will replace the hand-held Lynx Sensor Tester. Click here for details.
RJG will Partially Shut down for the Holidays

RJG generously allows their employees to take a much needed break around the holidays. If you need to place an order, do it fast! There will be no shipments going out after December 23 until we return to work on January 4th. Customer support will be here to take calls. Merry Christmas to all and see you in 2016!

Training Spotlight: Systematic Molding in Strongsville, OH

"I thought after 20 years of processing I knew it all...this class taught me otherwise."

We hear similar quotes ALL THE TIME. Our Systematic Molding class is an introductory course for anyone who wants to develop a systematic approach to molding FROM THE PLASTIC'S POINT OF VIEW (as opposed to the traditional machine's point of view). Students leave this course with a better understanding of how to develop a machine-independent process, how to make data-driven improvements to existing processes, as well as how to effectively troubleshoot using scientific and systematic approaches. Students will also understand the cause and effect relationships between the machine, process, mold, and material, as well as how and why polymer behavior is influenced.
