INDIANAPOLIS—The Association for Rubber Products Manufacturers unveiled new content for rubber manufacturing training.
The association said users can take training courses related to job setup and production flow. The job setup module involves installing a mold into a press and other tasks to prepare the press for molding a specific part. It is closely related to the production process, during which parts are made.
Other topics included in the ARPM training library are orientation to rubber manufacturing, introduction to nonmolding operations, quality, pyrometers and more.
ARPM said members who sign up for the training through 180 Skills also will gain access to the 180 Skills library of more than 700 online courses that cover topics ranging from baseline to advanced manufacturing content.
