  Have you registered yet for Plastics Technology’s upcoming Extrusion 2015 Conference?



Have you registered yet for 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. Your have until Friday to register and save $100 off the full-conference fee. 


Over the two-day affair, more than 60 technical experts will deliver presentations covering a wide range of subject areas on all things extrusion. 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.


In addition to the technical program, there will be ample opportunity for you to mingle with the more than 40 companies who will be exhibiting at this event.


Download complete agenda details. Check out all of the companies that are exhibiting.  In terms of registration, click here to see the pricing details. We also have special pricing if your company is thinking of sending more than three people. Ready to register? Click here and begin that process.


In terms of accommodations, once again it’s best to act quickly. The Omni is the show hotel, but it is sold out. 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.


  • Extrusion: How to Adjust for Polymer Shrinkage and Orientation

    Polymers shrink and orient. Sometimes orientation is unbalanced, resulting in misshaped parts. But there are steps beyond tweaking the die that can mitigate these effects.

  • Fix Thickness Variations in Extruded Sheet

    Non-uniform thickness in extruded sheet is a serious problem.

  • High-Speed Extrusion: Are You Ready for the Fast Lane?

    Around three dozen, mostly European, processors are pushing commercial development of high-speed single-screw extrusion. They have installed more than 100 of the small hyper-drive machines whose screws turn at up to 1500 rpm, about eight to 10 times faster than standard extruders. At least two German machine builders are working on machines that will go to 2000 rpm and even higher. The goal is to raise output without increasing extruder size.
