Need Help with a Molding Project to Counter the Coronavirus?
Expert help at a steep discount, and the fee goes to a COVID-19 related charity.
John Bozzelli, veteran injection molding consultant, trainer, and all-around molding guru—not to mention, a frequent contributor to Plastics Technology’s Injection Know-How column—has made a generous offer to others like him who want to help beat this pandemic any way they can. This is what John writes:
“Let it be known that I am available for consultation to troubleshoot, speed production, or provide machine time for any injection molded part that is directly involved with combating the coronavirus. The fee will be 30% of my normal rate, and it can be donated directly to any charity that responds to those suffering from the virus. No NDAs. Contact by email only: John@ScientificMolding.com. If the project involves more issues than I can handle, I will see if I can get others to help.”
