Creo Mold Design: Design of Plastic Injection Molds 

Course Duration: 16  / 40 Hours

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

Overview: You will be learning 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 include:  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.

Introduction to Mold Base Design & Injection mold development + making changes in parts to see updates in the mold, while utilizing the latest release of Creo. This Creo Mold Base training course is intended for serious design engineers, tooling engineers, anyone tasked to purchase plastic injection parts, and anyone who wants to become proficient at developing plastic injection mold bases in just one week. We help you learn to effectively design using Creo (Pro-E), not read to you from a book. In this course we help design engineers learn how to make changes quickly to set them up for becoming experts faster. As with all Design-Engine classes, participants keep the training material login and password for life.
