Technology Never Sleeps
Notwithstanding the global coronavirus pandemic, we at Plastics Technology have been as busy as ever reporting in depth on new products and technology trends. With that in mind, I’d like to introduce you to the Technology in Plastics Showcase (TiPS). Let me tell you what this is about.
On this site, TiPS features the latest new products in primary machinery, auxiliary equipment and materials. You can navigate to new product offerings using the navigation bar to the left.
TiPS is also packed with featured content on emerging technology trends you need to consider to gird yourself against future disruptions to your business. You might be thinking, “Another pandemic? Is he crazy?” Truth be told, disruptions come in all shapes and sizes, not just viral. So we’ll be focusing on “lessons learned” from this current disruption and what you might need to do differently so the next one isn’t so, well, disruptive.
We’ve tackled such issues as digital manufacturing, automation, additive manufacturing (aka 3D printing), and training tools—which have been around for years, but you need to revisit them now more than ever to make your processing operations more resilient. Click on Featured Article to the left to learn more.
Third, TiPS features on-demand videos from suppliers showing the latest new technology and solutions in action. We’re calling these “Digital Demos,” and they are 10-20 minutes long. Click on the Digital Demo link to see what we have in store.
