Establishing & Maintaining a Robust Process at Molding 2017 Conference

Get a better handle on your process with valuable tips from roughly a dozen speakers on topics such as Process Monitoring & Control and Establishing & Maintaining a Robust Process at Molding 2017 Conference.

Get a better handle on your process with valuable tips from roughly a dozen speakers on topics such as Process Monitoring & Control and Establishing & Maintaining a Robust Process at Plastics Technology’s Molding 2017 Conference, April 4-6 in Charlotte, N.C. Now in its 27th year, this annual conference and exhibit is targeted only at injection molders.

 

Here’s a sampling of some of the 65 technical presentations over two and a half days. You will see that they address process monitoring control in the machine, the mold, LSR metering, and in upstream auxiliaries such as dryers:
