Are You a Film Processor?

There’s plenty to learn at the Extrusion 2017 Conference.

Have you checked out Plastics Technology’s upcoming Extrusion 2017 Conference? It’s going to be held Oct. 18-20 in Charlotte, N.C. at the Sheraton Charlotte Hotel in the downtown section of the city.

This two-and-a-half-day event, Plastics Technology’s third such conference, is packed with presentations from more than 80 technical experts covering a wide range of subject areas. The morning sessions on all three days day will consist of presentations on general extrusion topics. During each afternoon of the first two days, there will be three concurrent breakout sessions that hone in on your particular process: film, sheet; pipe/profile/tubing; and compounding.

If you extrude film, either cast or blown, during these two afternoon sessions you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about Industry 4.0, eliminating gels, developments in extrusion controls, new options in thickness controls, and lots 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, tips on purging, predictive maintenance, and more. You’ll also have the opportunity to hear a presentation on Scientific Extrusion.

In addition to the technical program, there will be ample opportunity for you to mingle with the more than 80 companies who will be exhibiting at this event in what we believe is an unprecedented opportunity for anyone involved in extrusion (the Extrusion 2015 Conference attracted about 350 attendees, while the Extrusion 2016 Conference had an audience of more than 400).
