As of November of 2018, RJG is officially an Authorised Training Centre (ATC) for Autodesk®. The ATC status will allow RJG to share their injection moulding training background and experience with the Autodesk community across the world.
As an ATC, RJG is now able to provide their students with Advanced Autodesk® Moldflow® training. This software is essential for creating simulations of plastic parts during the part design, mould design phases and processing of the parts itself. Simulation allows designers to know how the plastic will act once it enters the mould: where it will cool first, how it will flow, what areas it will or will not reach, final dimensions and more.
“We have been utilising Autodesk Moldflow software for years, but now we’re proud to be recognised as an authorised training centre for Autodesk,” said Doug Espinoza, TZERO® Manager at RJG. “This is an invaluable tool that we are excited to share with our students. It’s going to be a huge asset in our training efforts moving forward.”
In order to achieve authorisation, RJG had to undergo examination by Autodesk to ensure their qualifications and skills were strong enough to provide high-quality training to their students. As an ATC, RJG is required to follow specific high standards that are continuously reviewed.
RJG’s TZERO® group also uses Autodesk Moldflow as part of their consulting service. They start at the very beginning stages of a tool launch (part design) to encourage collaboration throughout the process and ensure a good part from the very first shot… without rework. The Autodesk Moldflow software allows them to make those predictions and provide concrete advice for implementation improvements.
