The American Injection Molding (AIM) Institute provides education and training to the plastic injection molding industry.

AIM was founded by John Beaumont, Plastics Hall-of-Famer and former chair of the Plastics Engineering Technology program at Penn State Erie, which he also helped develop and establish.

Every program offered at AIM is based on the latest research available, much of which is conducted within our own walls. We work very closely with our customers, including those of our parent company Beaumont Technologies, to understand the industry’s knowledge gaps and develop educational content that fills those needs.

The AIM Institute has programs and courses for professionals from nearly all industry backgrounds and levels of experience.

We are headquartered in Erie, Pennsylvania at 6100 West Ridge Road.
