Building on an successful 2014 conference with nearly 400 attendees, over 100 presentations and more than 75 exhibitors, the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) and the Association of IndustrialMetallizers, Coaters, and Laminators (AIMCAL) will again present a combined event in 2015.
A program of parallel tracks will address extrusion, coating, lamination, metallization, converting, and the performance requirements driving design for flexible packaging. Presentations are anticipated to include recent developments in machinery, materials, and packaging designs targeted to an assortment of applications from food to electronics to transportation. Issues facing consumer product companies from food preservation to supply chain security are program considerations.
The event will begin with a series of seminars or tutorials providing in-depth overview of the technologies addressed in the event.
The conference will be held in conjunction with the AIMCAL Web Coating and Handling Conference offering additional in-depth presentations on coating, lamination and metallization.
Conference Topics include:
The objective of the Society is to promote the scientific and engineering knowledge relating to plastics.
Every day the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) helps people and companies in the plastics industry succeed. How? By spreading knowledge , strengthening skills and promoting plastics. SPE is the only place where people from all parts of the industry can come together around important issues and technologies. SPE’s contribution to the plastics industry for over 70 years has made a significant difference to the technologies and innovations the industry enjoys today. In the process, we've developed a 20,000-member network of leading engineers, scientists and other plastics professionals, including technicians, salespeople, marketers, retailers and representatives from tertiary industries.
