Mold Design Training: Design of plastic injection molds using Creo

Course Duration: 16 Hours / 40 Hours

Tuition: $1,200.00 / $2,500.00 US

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 today.
