Magnum Venus Plastech’s three-day Light RTM training course has been conducted for the first time in Malaysia.
The purpose of this course is to provide customers, who are considering the move to closed mould technology, with the tools and training they need to make the changeover successful. To that end, the three day training course includes extensive classroom lectures on the technology and techniques behind the process, the real costs and benefits of using Light RTM, and then moves to hands-on training from tooling the mould and counter mould, and finishes with the injection of a finished part.
Castmech Technologies hosted 10 students for this hands-on course in July at their facility in Ipoh Perak. Chan Yl, owner of Castmech Technolgies said, “""I enjoy seeing the participants' involvement and discussion. I appreciate Charles's input and useful advice.” He continued. “With this sharing and transferring of knowledge of the LRTM technology, we hope it will educate and assist clients in bringing higher quality and skill into their production"".
A student of the course wrote, “""I have not only reassured my decision to attend, but also had a real eye-opener. We will be working in a better way from now on.”
Mr. Chan continues, “We had one customer using the process before the training. We now have two more customers making their LRTM moulds!”
Joan Tracy, Vice-President of International Sales for MVP said, “We are very excited about the success of our first Malaysian LRTM Training, and look forward to watching the growth in this market. This comprehensive three-day training has proven to be a valuable asset to our global customers, and there are already courses scheduled around the world throughout 2009.”
