Conference contents

LIGHTWEIGHT design, LIGHTWEIGHT parts, SIMPLE machines, STRONG performance

Savings without sacrifice: that is the slogan of the foam injection moulding process, which makes it possible to produce high quality components up to 20% lighter than solid versions. These components are particularly beneficial where, alongside a specially shape fidelity, dimensional accuracy, weight reduction, insulation properties and efficiency of production are of importance. With a balanced mix of sound theory and practical case studies, the event will summarise the current state of physical and chemical foam injection moulding.
