Milacron hosts open house at new High Impact Technical Center

Following an eventful 2013, which included the acquisition of Mold Masters, Milacron is starting the new year by flinging open the doors of its brand new High Impact Technical Center (HIT) in Irvine, CA, next month. The company will host an open house from Feb. 10 through 13 to showcase developments in plastics technologies and delve into manufacturing issues during a number of technical presentations.

milacron-HIT300.jpgHighlights will include demos of an all-electric machine and other energy-efficient platforms running a 4-in. disk, dinner plate, and two-component poker chips. Throughout the day, Milacron executives will lead discussions on topics centered around how the plastics processing equipment and services company can help to maximize customer success and the support capabilities it offers.

Given the HIT's location in Irvine, where a number of medtech companies have set roots, trends and challenges in medical manufacturing will be part of the conference agenda. Ronald Baumhoefer, Global Market Manager, Medical and Packaging, will offer insights into medical molding, including optimized gating methods, multimaterial molding options, and cleanroom applications.

The center is located in proximity to the Anaheim Convention Center, where PLASTEC West and MDM West will attract thousands of attendees from Feb. 11 to 13. Showgoers with an interest in plastics processing technologies are encouraged to make time for the open house.

The event is free, but reservations are encouraged.
