Creo Mold Design: Design of Plastic Injection Molds 

Course Duration: 16  / 40 Hours

Tuition: $1,200 / $2,500 USD

Overview: Mold Base layout and design of Plastic Injection Mold Base. Any changes made to the design model automatically propagate to the mold components and assemblies. Participants will learn how to create final extract components that reflect the geometry of the design model, along with shrinkage considerations.

Onsite Training: This and all Design-Engine courses are offered onsite at your facility. Call to speak to an account manager to arrange a class. 312.226.8339 

Similar Courses: Week Long Manufacturing ComprehensiveForging Part Design, Plastics Part Design, Die Cast Part DesignSheetmetal Part Design, Prototype and Production Machining, CNC Machining.

Intended Audience: The instructor has made it clear that this course is open for managers,  buyers or anyone specifying and evaluating Mold Tooling are open to taking this two day or week long class.  Others who may be interested in this course indclude:  anyone who needs to understand mold design concepts, OEM Manufacturers, Managers and Molders, Tooling Buyers, Tooling Engineers, Product Designers, Toolmakers, Mold Makers, and Junior Mold Designers. 3d Creo knowledge is helpful but not necessary, Those without CAD knowledge are welcome.

Prerequisites: Prior experience with Creo and a willingness to learn or the two day Plastics Part Design class.
