Essentials of Injection Molding is an introductory course in the RJG Training Academy and is offered online in an interactive, self-paced platform. The online platform allows for students to benefit from RJG’s award-winning training without travel costs or the need to spend time away from work.

Learners will have an introduction to the four plastic variables, so they can begin to think from the plastic’s point of view, along with an orientation to the phases involved in DECOUPLED MOLDING®.

The objectives of Essentials of Injection Molding include:

  • Identify machine and mold components and their primary functions
  • Classify properties and characteristics of thermoplastic materials
  • Examine the four plastic variables: – How they are influenced by primary machine settings during a DECOUPLED MOLDING® II process – Their relationship to common defects
  • Recognize common safety hazards, symbols, and functions of safety mechanisms
  • Outline the keys to profitable molding
In order to receive the most benefit possible and gain the necessary tools to succeed in more advanced courses, Essentials of Injection Molding eLearning can be bundled with Math for Molders eLearning course at a discounted rate. The eLearning Essentials Bundle will be available at the same time as Essentials of Injection Molding. “Considering that manufacturers have been suffering from a severe talent drought that has only been exasperated by the Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve heard from our customers that it can be hard to pull employees away from production for an entire shift to provide traditional classroom-based or even virtual instructor-led training,” said Margaret Weinzapfel, Lead Instructional Designer at RJG. “But now with our eLearning Essentials Bundle, they’re able to reduce the time it takes for new hires to get familiarized with industry terms and the foundational concepts of DECOUPLED MOLDING. With on-demand access to training that’s portioned out into digestible segments, RJG is more able to help molders immediately bridge the skills gap in an efficient and cost-effective way.” Essentials of Injection Molding will replace the in-person Injection Molding Essentials course.
