Almost 400 participants from the plastics industry visited the TER Plastics POLYMER GROUP’s event series focussing on Structural Integrity and Thermal Management in Aschaffenburg on 11 May 2017.
The TER Plastics POLYMER GROUP positions itself as a development partner for the plastics industry, with innovative solutions and products. A large number of these product innovations were presented to almost 400 participants at the 5th Polymer Forum in Aschaffenburg.
“The significant increase in the number of participants each year shows us that we have correctly recognised the industry’s need for such an event,“ said Goran Brkljac, Applications Engineering and Product Development Manager at TER Plastics with pleasure.
High-calibre speakers covered topics ranging from in-situ pultrusion for long-fiber reinforced pultrudates to the use of plastics in the form of high-performance polymers in fuel cells. The expansion of the event to cover two concurrent lecture series was very well received by the visitors.
The Polymer Forum offered not only technical lectures but also a rousing keynote by Dr. Carl Naughton with the topic: “Inspiration – that is how you encourage innovation and change”.
Further experts of the presenting companies were available to the participants within the scope of a trade exhibition during the breaks. Furthermore, the numerous trade visitors from development, processing, purchasing and quality assurance departments had great opportunities for establishing and maintaining contacts.
A further innovation: TER Plastics developed its own question tool for the Polymer Forum. It allows the event visitors to ask questions online during the lectures and their questions are then answered immediately by the speakers.
