AIMPLAS, European Plastics Converters and Polymer Comply Europe to host workshop on producing flexible semi-finished products using extrusion technologies
The workshop will be held on 24 September at the PCE Conference Centre in Brussels (Belgium).
The workshop is aimed at company technical staff members interested in strengthening their knowledge of extrusion and control processes and technologies for producing flexible semi-finished products.
AIMPLAS, the Plastics Technology Centre, is organizing a training course in collaboration with European Plastics Converters (EuPC) and Polymer Comply Europe (PCE) on the production of flexible semi-finished products using extrusion technologies. It will be held on 24 September 2019 in Brussels (Belgium).
The workshop is aimed at company technical staff members interested in strengthening their knowledge of extrusion processes, control processes and technologies for the production of flexible semi-finished products. The main objective of the course is to help participants understand the importance of monitoring parameters in extrusion processes and learn about specific parameters and troubleshooting techniques inherent to blown film extrusion, cast film extrusion and co-extrusion.
To do so, the workshop’s aims include identifying the parameters of extrusion processes, highlighting the need and advantages of process monitoring, understanding the effect of process parameters on the performance of the plastic material and the quality of the final product, understanding the importance of screw selection in the plastic material’s melting behaviour, identifying the different components of blown film and cast film extrusion lines, and identifying possible defects in the final product and ways to solve them.
The workshop will be given by Rosa González and Vicent Martínez, researchers at the AIMPLAS Extrusion Department. It will take place at the PCE Conference Centre in Brussels (Belgium) from 9 am. to 5:30 pm.
AIMPLAS, the Plastics Technology Centre, is located in Valencia, Spain, and is listed in the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness’s Registry of Technology Centres. It is a member of the Spanish Federation of Technology Centres (FEDIT) and the Network of Technological Institutes of the Valencian Community (REDIT).
AIMPLAS is a non-profit organization that acts as a technology partner for companies in the plastics industry by offering them comprehensive, customized solutions through R&D&I projects and technology services (analyses and tests, technical support, training and competitive and strategic intelligence).
About European Plastics Converters (EuPC)
Created in 1989 and based in Brussels, EuPC is the EU-level trade association of European plastics converters. Its four divisions Packaging, Building & Construction, Automotive & Transport and Technical Parts represent the different markets of the plastic converting industry.
In June 2006, the Senior Executives Forum was created to incorporate industrial participation on senior management level into the EuPC agenda. In 2012, the NPA director platform was renamed Members Executive Forum (MEF), now composing of all representatives of the EuPC National Association Members.
Today, EuPC represents 28 national associations and 18 sectoral organisations, forming a powerful voice for the European plastics converters industry.
EuPC's aim is to contribute to an open and fair-trading environment for plastics converters in Europe. It focuses on market development, regulation, issue management and trade.
EuPC members are national plastics processing associations representing the plastics converting industry. It also represents 18 European sectoral associations of particular plastic markets or industry materials.
Health, safety and sustainability are key issues we work on, as well as the steady supply of raw materials and a well-functioning internal market.
