Late last year, we announced that we were putting togther a new series of “learning modules” to help people better understand HYTAC plug materials. The goal was to create short, narrated presentations beginning with some definitions and fundamentals then progressing all the way through to challenging, technical concepts related to the interplay of syntactic foam […]
The inaugural ANTEC Middle East in Dubai drew over 150 attendees from the Gulf Region, Europe, North America and Asia. While the technical program featured papers on technological advances in materials and machinery for a range of plastics processing, break-out workshops allowed for more a conversational approach between the presenters and attendees.

Over 200 delegates from 27 countries attended the 9th annual European Thermoforming Conference in the glorious Bohemian capital city that is Prague. The theme of the event was billed as “Forming a Sustainable Future” with major topical focus on innovation and competitiveness. Both heavy-gauge and thin-gauge sectors were well-represented in the technical program.
This is the second in our 2-part report from the 2014 European Thermoforming Conference. Here we discuss the heavy-gauge thermoforming panel and related topics in machinery and materials.
CMT recently exhibited at Chinaplas 2014 in Shanghai. With over 130,000 visitors and 3000 exhibitors, this year’s event was the biggest yet. According to some exhibitors, this show could become second only to K in terms of attendance and importance for the plastics industry.
We all know about the variables involved in thermoforming: sheet quality, machine configuration, ambient air temperature, mold design, plug material & geometry, sheet temperature, etc. And we know that there is science behind each of these items. So even after checking everything and documenting everything, why do we still see parts that have to be […]
The unofficial count of attendees was right around 800 in the Renaissance Schaumburg Conference Center Hotel for the 2014 SPE Thermoforming Conference. With almost 70 people in the thin-gauge seminar on Monday, CMT presented new information on plug materials and processing techniques, as well as discussing some early results from recent trials with clarified PP […]
