Experts in the field contribute how-to and technical articles for the website that help fill the gap in training and education. Topics covered include CNC machining, mold design, electrical discharge machining, as well as the many manual skills required to build and repair a mold.
Veteran mold maker, Jon Arnett recently stated, "American plastics manufacturers are experiencing a dramatic shortage of skilled workers. Few companies offer apprenticeship programs and the tech schools rarely offer the necessary courses."
"Unless something is done on a local level this shortage of designers and mold makers will force more work to be outsourced to overseas companies," states Mr. Arnett. Moldmaking is a huge industry worldwide and the US can regain its prominence as a manufacturer of high quality industrial products through training and education, such as is found in this website.
MoldmakingResource.com was started in 2006 by Randy Hough as a resource for plastic injection mold makers and molders. Together with other industry experts they produce technical products and articles to train and educate apprentices and veteran toolmakers.
