– Injection Molding
– Part Design
– Simulation Analysis


Development Courses

Our very popular in-person development classes are now available online! All the same great information covered but we spread it out over four days. Each day is a four hour session so you have time to work AND attend class! We dig into these topics into much more detail than the bootcamp classes.

-Plastic Materials
-Mold Design
-Injection Molding
-Part Design
-Molding Math



Flow Grouping Diagnostics

Flow grouping is a science-based method of diagnosing the root cause of fill imbalances in your injection mold.

Learning and applying this technique in your operations will help you figure out what’s going on in your mold (is it steel, or is it shear?) more quickly and accurately – saving you time and money.

Runner and Gating Design Strategies

Runner and Gating Design StrategiesThe course begins by explaining various aspects of plastic flow within an injection mold and how it may influence shrink and warp in molded parts.

Students then learn several strategies used to decide on gate location(s) for a given part.

The course then teaches various design and layout strategies and considerations for both hot and cold runner systems including gating options and runner sizing strategies.



Molding Math

Molders need to use math in their daily jobs, whether they are calculating shot size, transferring a process from one machine to another, or trying to determine clamp tonnage or material utilization.

When most of us learned math in school, we weren’t given real-life examples that related to the job that we are doing today. And as with most things, if you don’t use it…you lose it.

AIM’s Molding Math course was designed to teach – or reteach – you the concepts you need for your job using realistic examples that are found daily in a molding shop.
