• Beaumont’s American Injection Molding (AIM) Institute is teaming up with iMFLUX, a wholly owned subsidiary of Procter & Gamble (P&G), to offer two levels of training on iMFLUX’s proprietary process control system for the plastics injection molding industry.

    The AIM Institute, founded by Plastics Hall-of-Famer John Beaumont, and iMFLUX are both recognized in the industry for their research-based and innovative approaches to solving injection molding problems. AIM, an organization dedicated solely to research and education, is home to the only ANSI-accredited training program in the injection molding industry, while iMFLUX’s constant pressure approach to molding touts benefits that have until now not been seen in our industry.

    “Our organizations share a passion for research and a drive for pushing the injection molding industry forward,” said David Hoffman, AIM Institute Director. “These common principles have helped our organizations form a strong partnership and develop training to best inform our industry of how this innovative new technology can be optimally utilized on the manufacturing floor.”

    “Our growth has been driven by constant research and improvements to our molding technology,” added Gene Altonen, Chief Technology Officer at iMFLUX. “It was imperative that our training partner be well versed in not only conventional molding, but also open to understanding the benefits of iMFLUX and how our pressure controlled process has the potential to transform the way our industry thinks and operates on the shop floor.”

    The AIM Institute’s Introduction to iMFLUX class will provide attendees with a basic understanding of iMFLUX control parameters, how molding with iMFLUX compares to conventional molding, and examples of ideal applications for processing with iMFLUX. The Applied iMFLUX Processing class is designed for process technicians, engineers, or managers whose job requires understanding and demonstration or implementation of the iMFLUX injection molding process. Attendees will be given the knowledge necessary to set up and adjust an iMFLUX process as well as to convert a conventional molding process to one utilizing iMFLUX.

    Both of these courses are expected to fill out quickly as iMFLUX’s current training resources are already at capacity. For additional information on iMFLUX training at the AIM Institute, please visit aim.institute/imflux.
