The Importance of Training
Running a manufacturing facility at 100% capacity means that all available resources, including personnel, equipment, and materials, are being used to their maximum potential. Maximizing personnel resources means investing in training for the workforce.
Investing in employee training will bring several benefits to your company, such as increased productivity, improved quality control, employee retention and enhanced safety. Here are some ways to justify the investment in training your employees:
- Improved productivity: Training can help employees become more skilled at their jobs, leading to increased productivity. This can result in cost savings for the company and increased output.
- Better quality control: Training can help employees learn more about quality control processes and procedures, improving product quality and customer satisfaction.
- Increased safety: Proper training can help employees operate machinery and equipment safely, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries. This can help to lower workers’ compensation costs and improve employee morale.
- Employee retention: Investing in employee training can help to demonstrate to employees that the company values their skills and development. This can lead to increased employee loyalty and retention, reducing the costs associated with recruiting and training new employees.
- Competitive advantage: Companies that invest in employee training may be able to gain a competitive advantage by producing higher-quality products more efficiently. This can help to attract and retain customers, leading to increased revenue and market share.
- New Opportunities: Employees who are trained may progress to learn new skills and technologies that could improve their job performance, provide a road map for career advancement, create higher job satisfaction, and contribute to the company’s success.
Kruse Training: Specialized Training for Injection Molding Professionals
The injection molding process requires a high degree of precision and skill to produce high-quality, defect-free parts. To meet the demands of the industry, injection molding professionals need to continually improve their skills and knowledge. That’s where Kruse Training comes in. As a leader in professional development and training, Kruse Training offers a wide range of courses and workshops specifically designed for injection molding professionals.
An Interactive Online Knowledge and Training System
Kruse Training is an online knowledge and training solution for part designers, mold designers, and senior process engineers. The interactive online program imparts foundational and expert knowledge and is designed to present information logically. The unique “focused-learning” system combines animations, simulations, videos, quizzes, and multimedia presentations that build skills and increase confidence. An interactive CAD tool provides users the opportunity to examine and manipulate sample part with various molding defects. Kruse Training lessons are developed with injection molding professionals in mind, from entry level to experienced engineers.
Kruse Training aims to develop synergistic teams of cross-trained professionals who can successfully design and mold plastic components.
Kruse VR Training
Virtual reality has become mainstream for many industrial applications, allowing users to explore, learn, and prepare for new technologies.
And now Kruse Training is developing the first fully functional molding shop floor VR solution. The goal is to create virtual reality classes for injection molding processing, teaching users how to become “VR Molding Experts”, and getting ready to work on an actual shop floor. These VR molding classes are being developed to support a molding company’s hands-on process training initiatives. The new technology will allow process engineers to walk and work through individual molding set-ups and processing tasks, giving them the skills and confidence to advance to the next level of molding challenges.
