COMING IN 2022! Kruse Training will be offering two Circle of Knowledge seminar topics!

  • Cause-and-Effect Behaviors in Injection Molding: The original Kruse Training seminar series takes you through real-life molding scenarios to show the cause and effect behaviors of design and process.
  • Common Molding Defects in Injection Molding: We are excited to introduce this new seminar focused on common molding defects and techniques for minimizing or eliminating them.

Kruse Training seminars are in-person* programs aimed to help develop synergistic teams of cross-trained professionals who can successfully design and mold plastic components. Both seminars are 2-day programs based on the Kruse Training online training solution. The seminars are a comprehensive cross-training initiative for part designers, mold designers, and process engineers.
