TREND TECHNOLOGIES SCIENTIFIC INJECTION MOULDING EXPERT TO SPEAK AT MEDICAL POLYMERS AND PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY SEMINAR

Trend Technologies Senior Process Engineer and Scientific Injection Moulding expert, Trevor Thornton will be speaking at the Medical Polymers and Processing Technology Seminar which is being held at First Polymer Training, Athlone on Thursday 16th February.

The event is most suited for Med tech professionals involved in research and development, new product development and technical roles, and will focus on material selection and processing.

Trevor will be one of a number of industry speakers. The synopsis for his talk is below.

Material manufacturers and injection moulding simulation companies invest a lot of time and effort trying to create the perfect part. Past methods have provided results but they are never repeatable and can change based on the user. The most important requirement is the actual melt temperature. Infrared (IR) thermography has really taken off in the past 7 to 10 years. Trevor will discuss the usage of IR cameras in Scientific Injection Moulding (SIM) studies, and their importance on a daily basis as a vital piece of equipment for both fault finding and as part of the part validation process.
