Readers of Plastics Technology magazine will have noticed a flurry of activity by injection machine builders in recent years to upgrade all-electric and hybrid presses to compete in the “Indy 500” of molding—high-speed, thin-wall packaging. Recent trade shows have showcased a slew of “packaging” and “speed” versions of high-tech presses.

At Molding 2019 in Indianapolis (March 19-21), you’ll have a chance to learn more about what makes the difference between standard models and the new breed of speed demons. In the afternoon breakout session on Medical, Packaging & Precision Molding on Tues., March 19, two speakers will address this topic:

  • Trevor Pruden of Arburg: “What Does a Packaging Machine Need?”
  • Jim Overbeeke of Engel: “All-Electric Machines Prove Capable for High-Speed, Thin-Wall Packaging”
