Held from March 29-31 at the Westin Canal Place in New Orleans, Molding 2016, the 26th edition of the venerable event and second since it was acquired by Plastics Technology parent Gardner Business Media, was by nearly all measurements an unqualified success. There were 237 attendees ranging from machinery, material and services suppliers, as well as molders, moldmakers and OEMs. They had their choice of 53 different presentations and the chance to speak with the event’s 14 exhibitors and seven sponsors about the latest in injection molding.

 

Over two and a half days, attendees could sit on presentations covering a variety of topics, including emerging technologies, robotics/automation, tooling, materials, process monitoring/control, mold qualification, simulation, materials drying/blending/conveying, and medical and automotive molding.

 

The breadth and depth of topics covered is of a kind with Plastics Technology’s editorial mission, according to Rick Kline, Jr., Group Publisher.

 

“Gardner views the Molding Conference as an extension of Plastics Technology magazine, connecting and informing molders to help them improve their operations. The line-up of speakers and sponsors reflects Plastics Technology’s core mission to provide insights into the latest technologies as well as practical advice to improve day-to-day manufacturing.”
