Participants will learn to analyze heat energy and the mold cooling management required to produce consistent, profitable parts. Participants systematically challenge the design of new molds and uncover molds through a development of best practices for mold.
Who Should Attend
This two-day course is tailored for designers, mold builders, tooling engineers, and mold technicians who want to understand and control the effects of mold cooling resulting in a more robust mold design, mold build, and molding process.
