Learn more about what you will learn about flexible film by attending this year’s Extrusion 2019 Conference. 

In my previous blogs I explained why more and more processors have registered to attend the Plastics Technology Extrusion Conference since the event was launched in 2015: To Learn. In my most recent blog I focused specifically on the topics that will be discussed in our sessions on General Extrusion. Now I’d like to take a deeper dive into the afternoon breakout sessions and what you will learn there, starting with Film Extrusion.

The Extrusion 2019 Conference will take place Sept. 17-19 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill. It is the only conference of its type: sessions devoted to general extrusion—issues that pertain to all extrusion processors regardless of what comes out of their die—coupled with breakout sessions on specific kinds of extrusion: Film, Sheet, Pipe/Profile/Tubing and Compounding.

The General Extrusion sessions will be held the mornings of Sept. 17-19 and feature a veritable who’s who list of experts in extrusion processing. The afternoon sessions of Sept. 17-18 are where attendees will be able to drill down on talks specific to their process.
