ToolingDocs Expands its Hot Runner Curriculum

Manifold systems must be handled with great care while cleaning, inspecting and reassembling using mold-specific documentation as a guide. Methodical practices must be used to prevent potential disasters that are easily created through a lack of knowledge of how hot runner systems operate and the critical components within.

For this reason, ToolingDocs, a leading authority on mold maintenance, established a unique, intro level hot runner repair and maintenance program that has been extremely well received and attended. Now, in answer to requests from class attendees, ToolingDocs has expanded the original program into a comprehensive, 4-day advanced curriculum.

The first class will be held June 24-27 and the at the ToolingDocs Maintenance Center, and seats filled almost immediately. The next course is scheduled for August 12-15.
