Have Something to Say About Injection Molding?

Facebook Share Icon LinkedIn Share Icon Twitter Share Icon Share by EMail icon Print Icon

Do you have knowledge that if shared could positively impact injection molding?


Plastics Technology is once again gathering papers for its annual Molding conference; a two-and-a-half-day conference devoted to all things injection molding, from technological advances in materials, molds and machines, to winning management tactics. (Read about some of the technologies presented at Molding 2016).


Molding 2017 will take place April 3-5 in Charlotte at the Le Méridien Charlotte. Are you an expert in a particular aspect of molding or a technology or service that could be of use to injection molders? If yes, we encourage you to submit a 200- word or less abstract today.


General conference topics will include:


Emerging Technologies: Additive Manufacturing, Industry 4.0, predictive maintenance and more.


Materials: Engineering materials, thermoplastic composites, bio-based plastics, LSR, recycled/reprocessed materials and more.


Tooling: Intelligent molds, servo-electric tool actions, 3D printed production tooling, advances in hot runners and more.


Robots & Automation: The rise of collaborative robots; adding vision and weight sensing to robots; when should you automate and more.


Adding Value Through Decorating, Assembly, Packaging: Going beyond simple assembly and decorating, to packaging, inspection, shipping and more.


Establishing & Maintaining a Robust Process: Applying principles of Scientific Molding and other strategies to create repeatable molding processes.


If you have a presentation that lies outside these topics but still impacts molding, please send it our way. At last year’s event, speakers ran the gamut, coming from the processor end of the injection molding supply chain spectrum, with molders and moldmakers; through to suppliers of machinery, robotics and materials; all the way to OEMs.
