Each topic covered includes some basic well known aspects of rubber mold design and also touches on some lessor known rubber mold design techniques and concepts. The novice rubber mold designer will be overwhelmed with useful design information and the seasoned practitioner will find plenty of valuable bits of information well worth the day. The instructors draw upon their combined extensive career knowledge for this material, inviting and encouraging the attendees to participate in a work-shop format presentation by addressing their questions and specific rubber mold design applications. Attendees are encouraged to bring drawings or parts giving problems in production for discussion by course instructors.
