European conference explores latest advances in injection molding technology

Injection molders today have to deliver the highest quality parts at the lowest cost and on the shortest leadtimes. With resin prices moving up, margins are being squeezed so it is more important than ever to use the most efficient and effective processing techniques.

Produced by European Plastics News, the second Advanced Molding Technologies conference – to be held June 28-29 in Brussels, Belgium – will take a close look at some 15 different advanced molding techniques that can help injection molders produce better parts faster and at less cost.

One of the key areas that will be explored at the conference is assisted molding, an area once mired in patent disputes, and variothermal, or mold temperature cycling, will also be covered in detail with expert speakers explaining how it is being exploited by processors in the automotive and electronics to deliver new levels of quality and aesthetics.

Speakers taking part in the conference include experts from academia – Prof Dr Christoph Jaroschek at Bielefeld University, the RWTH Aachen University and the Kunststoff-Institut Luedenscheid. Speakers also include senior technology specialists from Netstal Packaging Systems, Sumitomo (SHI) Demag Plastics Machinery GmbH and Wittman Battenfeld.
