SPE 8th European Thermoforming Conference: Experts Met in Venice
The European Thermoforming industry’s main event of the year, the 8th European Thermoforming Conference (April 26th – 27th 2012), was held in Venice and attracted nearly 200 experts to attend.
The biennial conferences are proving to be the most important platform for leading business decision makers, suppliers and technologists to meet, network and to discuss the latest developments within the thermoforming industry. It is agreed that they are fast becoming the major international forums for technological advancement within our sector.
A combination of technical presentations, discussion workshops and an exhibition of associated technologies which ran in parallel, all contributed to ensure the event was relevant and informative to the international participants.
This year’s subjects presented by industry experts were again comprehensive and all-encompassing, covering advancements in terms of the materials and processes technology.
The discussion workshops focused on the subjects of “Transformation within Plastics Packaging”, “Handle the Output of Thin Wall Production” and “Mechanical Fixation / New Bonding Techniques in Thick Gauge Applications”.
The next European Thermoforming Conference is scheduled to take place in April 2014.
