MOLDS ESSENTIAL

Author

Robert Maes

Various activities are involved in injection molding. People can be trained separately for important tasks. For example for the conversion of injection molding machines.

Thanks to a structured method, it takes less time and money to convert and set up injection molding machines. That is why many companies employ employees who are specifically tasked with this task. Maes Insights can train them for you.​
