INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS FLOCK TO SHOW
Industry professionals from plastics companies across the country descended on Telford this Easter to find out about the latest innovations in the polymer industry.
A total of 60 representatives from processing organisations visited City of Wolverhampton College’s Polymer Training and Innovation Centre (PTIC) in March for its annual Techni-Vation event.
The free day had been organised to showcase the latest technology aimed at improving process efficiency and reducing cost.
Delegates took the opportunity to listen to presentations and live demonstrations from a range of experts, including: Kistler Instruments; Summit Systems; Sumitomo Demag; Arburg and Fanuc, on topics that included cavity pressure monitoring and control, holistic approaches to reducing unit costs and the energy efficiency of all-electric machines. Isocool, COGENT, Yudo-Suns UK, HB Therm and the University of Wolverhampton also attended to network or to provide practical demonstrations.
Georgina Parker, the Director at the College responsible for PTIC said: “The event was hugely successful and we are delighted that our suppliers and customers have come together to find out about the latest innovations within the industry.
“We have had really good feedback, with people saying how useful the day has been and are already looking ahead to next year’s event. We’d love to hear from companies wishing to take part.”
