  The thing with most successful companies is that they get involved.  This is no different among plastics processors.



The thing with most successful companies is that they get involved.  This is no different among plastics processors. They stay on top of new technology by reading publications like this, by attending trade shows like NPE, K, Chinaplas, and others. They send their people out for training wherever possible…or develop the tools themselves.


And they attend conferences.


A quick look at the processors who have registered for Extrusion 2015 reveals a veritable who’s who in film/sheet; pipe/profile/tubing; and compounding. Companies like Toray, Placon, RJ Reynolds, Zip-Pak, Sonoco, Printpack, 3M,  Dart, Scholle, Klockner Pentaplast, Raven Industries, Ethicon, Triad Polymers, Asahi Kasei Plastics, North Star Windows, Johns Manville, Apeldoorn Flexible Packaging B.V, Charlotte Pipe, A. Schulman, and lots more.


At the end of Plastics Technology’s two-day conference, to be held Nov. 2-3 at the Omni Charlotte Hotel in Charlotte, N.C. , these and other companies will hear presentations from experts in virtually every aspect of extrusion, and will come away armed with tips, techniques and best practices that could possibly help make their companies more efficient and competitive.


Put yourself on equal footing by registering to attend this landmark event. Mingle with the more 60 speakers who will be presenting technical papers, and the 40 companies who will be exhibiting.


Download complete agenda details. Check out all of the companies that are exhibiting. We also have special pricing if your company is thinking of sending more than three people. Ready to register? 


In terms of accommodations, while 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.

Don’t be left out.


  • Get Smart About Screens

    Almost all extrusion processes pass melt through wire-mesh screens on the way to the die to provide filtering and improved mixing.

  • 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.
