Have you checked out Plastics Technology’s upcoming Extrusion 2015 Conference? It’s going to be held Nov. 2-3 in Charlotte, N.C. at the Omni Charlotte Hotel in the downtown section of the city.
This two-day event is packed with presentations from more than 60 technical experts covering a wide range of subject areas. The format is a little different than what you might be accustomed to: The morning sessions on each day will include presentations on general extrusion topics. During each afternoon there will be three concurrent breakout sessions that hone in on your particular process: film/sheet; pipe/profile/tubing; and compounding.
If you extrude sheet or film, during these two afternoon sessions you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about best practices in winding, drying, purging, product changeovers, troubleshooting nettlesome issues such as gels and black specs, as well as new developments in no-dry systems for PET, and much more.
But don’t sleep in because there is plenty on the agenda each morning for you: screw design basics, troubleshooting conveying systems, new developments in filtration and melt pump technologies, how to make more efficient use of reclaim, new approaches in foaming, and more.
In addition to the technical program, there will be ample opportunity for you to mingle with the more than 30 companies who will be exhibiting at this event.

In terms of accommodations, once again it’s best to act quickly. The Omni is the show hotel, but is filling up at a fast and furious pace. As a result, we have negotiated a similar discounted rate with the Aloft Charlotte, which is nearby.
We at Plastics Technology believe the Extrusion 2015 Conference is the event of the year for extrusion processors of all kinds. We hope to see you there.
