The plastic411 CORE Processor training system is an in-plant training program that first identifies the strengths and weaknesses of your team,, and then develops in-house training at your plant using your presses and equipment!This is NOT class room training that is quickly lost with very little retention due to the generic content of many programs that often are not providing information that applies to your plant! The primary difference? The training is developed to be company specific. Very little class time.. on your floor, using your plant’s equipment, materials and processes. 2 day courses that your facility and myself develop together…. Processor Training Info: CLICK HERE

What Kaizen approach can teach mold set-up teams
The efficiency of mold changes, a common task in many custom injection molding shops, is a key factor in determining how much machine time is available. Poor performance in changeover times and approach can make or break a company with a lean manufacturing ideology. Efficiency, consistency and speed are three primary focuses in a lean-minded shop.
This 2 day training program teaches how principles of Kaizen can be implemented into a molding shop’s mentality to drastically reduce changeover times and the downtime associated with mold changes.
