ANTEC rolls into Motor City

DetroitThe center of gravity for plastics engineers can be found in Detroit next week, when the 77th edition of SPE ANTEC comes to town.

Dozens of sessions will explore a cornucopia of technical topics ranging from applied rheology, injection molding and single-screw extrusion to composites and medical materials.

Featured speakers at the four-day event include Greg Breyta from IBM Almaden Research Center talking about the breakthrough Volcat recycling technology (which we recently covered in PlasticsToday); Paul Krajewski from GM presenting a keynote on plastics in the future mobility ecosystem; and Mark Spalding from Dow Chemical, recipient of the 2019 SPE Research/Engineering Technology Award, discussing a fundamental approach to process design and troubleshooting.

More than 70 industry suppliers will be camped out in the exhibition hall, almost half of which are new to ANTEC.

A full program guide is available for download.

ANTEC 2019 runs from March 18 to 21.
