Call for Entries in Parts Competition of SPE Thermoforming Division

The Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) Thermoforming Division has announced a call for entries in its annual Parts Competition, showcasing the latest advances in thermoforming design and application. The submission deadline is August 15, 2014.

The parts entered in the Competition will be on display during the 23rd SPE Thermoforming Conference, which will be held September 15-18 at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel in Schaumburg, Illinois, USA. Awards for winning parts will be presented at the Thermoforming Awards Dinner on Tuesday, September 16, at the hotel.

Competition entrants may submit parts in several categories, depending on the type of thermoforming operation:

  • Roll-fed categories are Industrial, Medical, or Food.
  • Heavy-gauge categories are Vacuum Form, Pressure Form, and two new categories: Twin Sheet and TPO.
  • Combined. For this new entry option, entrants may submit parts comprised of recycled material (minimum 40% recycled content), which include Value Added Assembly and represent Innovation.

“SPE has expanded the 2014 Parts Competition to better represent the changes that are taking place in the thermoforming industry,” said Steve Zamprelli, 2014 Parts Competition chair. “The new categories will showcase advances in the repurposing of materials and ingenuity.” Guidelines for Competition entrants and the required product entry form are posted online .
