This week I’m in Traverse City, MI, at a two-day event hosted by RJG, “Scientific Molding Strategies for Managers.” It will feature a variety of seminars on processing using scientific/decoupled molding, training, and education to a group of invited RJG customers and others. It seems that these educational seminars and “Lunch & Learn” programs are becoming more popular as more companies are taking it upon themselves to educate customers and potential customers about their business, or technical topics in general.
Every few months, Rod Roth at R&D Plastics in Hillsboro, OR, has a one-day seminar on various topics including plastic part design and injection molding technology. He typically draws a good group of people interested in learning more about molding technology, plastic part design, mold design and other topics Rod offers. Included in the event is lunch and a plant tour.
I also recently received a release from Americhem on that company’s “Lunch and Learn” series, which they call “Americhem U.” The company had such good success at its world headquarters in Dalton, GA, they decided to take it on the road. They recently held Americhem U in Cuyohoga Falls, OH and suburban Detroit to better accommodate customers from all the industries Americhem serves.
