MMT Chats: The Science of Moldmaking, Part 2
MoldMaking Technology Editorial Director Christina Fuges chats with Don Smith, North American Senior Tooling Engineer for Scholle IPN in Northlake, Illinois about lean manufacturing, teaching mold design and our future generation of mold engineers.
Don Smith has a long history with moldmaking, which has resulted in a passion for lean manufacturing and teaching mold design and engineering. In Part 2 of this two-part MMT Chat, I continue my conversation with Don by exploring lean manufacturing and why he believes it is even more important today, as the industry continues to work through COVID-19.
I also delve into his love for teaching, which he still does today. And lastly, we chat about the next generation, and he shares his tips for how to attract, train and retain our future mold builders and mold engineers.
