Description 

The use of plastic, in both consumer products and industrial applications, has come under much scrutiny recently. But with increasing levels of innovative technology and proven cost savings, is there still a place for plastic in an ever more environmentally conscious world?

We have teamed up with igus a global producer of motion plastics, to find out what is being done to address these challenges and how they are engineering sustainable and recyclable plastics for a better future.

Covering a wide range of industrial applications, this digital event will take a look into the medical and automotive sectors, to review the manufacturing methods and uses of motion plastics that are creating smart, efficient engineering solutions.

 

Format

This event will be run online, via the Microsoft Teams platform.

Following the headline presentation, a participant-led Q&A session will take place, providing an opportunity for you to delve deeper into a particular area of interest, pick the experts’ brains or ask any queries you have specific to your business needs.

We would encourage engineers, product designers, students, technicians, manufacturers, researchers and anyone else with an interest in the future of industrial plastics to take part.
