Husky Injection Molding Systems of Canada hosted its first South American stop on the Husky World Tour 2013, a Beverage Packaging Conference at its Technical Center in São Paolo, Brazil on May 14.According to Husky, more than 130 people from over 70 companies attended the event.
“We are diligently working, both independently and with our customers, to develop a more sophisticated understanding of waste and how it affects the total cost to produce,” said John Galt, President and CEO of Husky.
“The competitiveness of today’s packaging market demands thinking about manufacturing solutions beyond simply output per capital. This event was a great opportunity to connect with customers to share the various tools we offer to improve their operations, from the application level to factory planning, as well as get their insights into what they need to be more competitive.”
The one-day event kicked off with a presentation from Mr Galt. More presentations were given by Husky and industry experts, including guest speakers Paulo Villas, Packaging Supply Chain Manager and Lucas Amendola, Chemical Engineer from Coca-Cola Brazil, highlighting current and upcoming industry trends.
Husky also presented its products and services, including H-PET AETM system for lower volume preform manufacturing, HyCAP system for the high output production of beverage closures, as well as mold conversions and aftermarket services to help preform manufacturers keep their operations running at peak efficiency.
