Moldmakers are teaming up with machinery manufacturers to show what their molds can do when running in a press or thermoforming machine. Here are some of the really cool molds that you can see in action at NPE2018.
NPE2018 premieres, innovations and highlights from Next Generation Recycling Machines (Feldkirchen an der Donau, Austria) range from FDA-allowed 100% post-consumer rPET bottle flake to downgauging of sheet, mobile connectivity and more.
The impact of this technology will be visible all over the NPE2018 show floor: Verstraete IML (Maldegem, Belgium) has joined forces with 25 companies to showcase no fewer than 12 in-mold label projects.
De-polymerization technology developed by Agilyx Corp. (Tigard, OR) will be deployed at or near an Ineos Styrolution facility in North America. The aim is to convert post-consumer polystyrene waste into styrene monomer that can be used to re-manufacture new polystyrene products.
