See what our customers are saying about Kruse Training.
We are proud to provide injection molding training to some of the top companies in the plastics industry. Let our customers tell you about their experience with Kruse Training.
I just want to say I appreciate you for helping me out in the beginning when I first started out learning about injection molding. Your explanations during the analyses taught me so much. Also, the training was very good in expanding my knowledge about injection molding. Everything was clear and easy to follow.

SMP Engineering, Inc., founded in 2004, is a small, vertically integrated multidisciplinary research and development team serving the defense, space and aerospace markets.
I am the Managing Director for a company in Belfast specialising in plastics moulded components and the associated tooling. I purchased the Kruse Training program to access it as we are always looking for quality training material and I was very impressed by the easy to follow format of 10 -15 minute videos. I now plan to put a number of my staff from various departments through the program as there is useful and relevant info for mold designers, toolmakers, process engineers, quality engineers and technical sales. I am excited for Kruse Training to launch level 2 training that I’ve completed and earned my certification for level 1.

I was out of injection molding for 10 years. I was driving a semi-truck and looking for another driving job when Aroplax Corporation called me out of the blue to interview for a processor opening. I was a processor before I left the industry. I got the job because of my 15 years of previous experience. However, I found myself struggling to get back up to speed, to be where I needed to be. I found Kruse Training and talked to the operations manager, convincing him that I needed to go back to school and Kruse Training was perfect. I was able to do it from work, at my own pace. The graphics are excellent. The content was well thought out as it took me through the steps, from the very basic to advanced molding. I learned things that I never knew before. These level one courses were paramount in getting me back to where I was before and taught me new information that I use on a daily basis now. I earned my level one certification and I am looking forward to level two to really help me in my renewed career.
Thank you Torsten Kruse and everyone at Kruse training.

We have been using the Kruse Training program at Prestige Mold since it launched in 2018. I hold regularly scheduled engineering sessions for our design and molding teams, and the training does what it was intended to do. It educates all levels of experience and leads to collaboration and discussions among our engineers. I have worked closely with Torsten to ensure the content and delivery of the training materials meets our needs and am pleased with the results for our engineering group and the company overall.

As a Project Manager for ALBA Enterprises, LLC with a background in mold making, mold design, and process development Kruse Training has been an amazing asset to have available. Having access for a few months now my thought process as a mold maker has evolved from thinking in steel conditions to understanding plastic conditions. Working in the plastics industry and developing an understanding of “Pellet 2 Part – P2P” is key to a successful molding process. The Circle of Knowledge program highlights the key areas of molding fundamentals, materials, part, mold design, as well as processing. The Kruse Training program is a first-class training program and I look forward to continuing my plastics education with the Kruse Training team!
ALBA Enterprises adds value to clients by offering innovative and affordable products, uniquely and individually analyzing each client’s potential application in order to determine suitability of their products, and providing ongoing after-sale support and consultation required for successful execution of a new manufacturing plan.
As Manufacturing Engineer at Ford Motor Company I have worked with Kruse Analysis for several years and rely on Torsten for his experience and insight. That he is now taking his expertise and helping train engineers in our field makes perfect sense. The Kruse Training program takes what Torsten has learned in his years in the injection molding industry and helps new and veteran engineers expand their knowledge and become more well-rounded professionals. Having access for a few months now, I have already referenced and recommended this to many engineers in my company. Taking the knowledge he has gained from Kruse Analysis and developing Kruse Training is simply a “win” for our industry. Having seen that the Kruse Training is a top-notch program, I think it should be a requirement for all new hires at your organization! I can’t wait to get access to level 2 for more lessons.

As Engineering Manager my job is to make sure our team is ready and able to successfully complete their tasks and to achieve the goals of our business. Because the Kruse Training program has short and digestible lessons that are available anytime, my team can easily refresh their knowledge on a key point or learn a necessary piece of information to complete their assigned task. We can integrate training into our engineers’ work day and not send team members out for periods of long and costly training sessions.
