Building synergistic teams of trained professionals

A team must be able to understand each member’s scope of expertise. When processing engineers understand part and mold design, their mold processing is enhanced. This interactive, goal-oriented cross-training improves your competitive edge.

State-of-the-Art Online Training Solution

Subscription-based and future-orientated, our interactive
online program imparts both foundational and expert knowledge.

We use 3D process simulation technology to demonstrate cause and effect of molding behavior, illustrating how “The Circle of Knowledge” between part design, mold design, and processing works in the real world.
