Compounding Workshop goes digital...

Especially during the pandemic, we would like to stay in dialog with you and continue to actively shape the future of the plastics industry together. That's why we are now bringing our presentations to your screens. This year, everything revolves around

Digitalization and the challenges of the future in the plastics industry.


Here you will find an overview on our presentations.

Presentation 2 Smart Sensors & Digitalization in the Plastics Industry

Dr. Klaus Straka will share his experience on the possibilities smart sensors offer in plastics processing.

His presentation focuses on "Smart Sensors & Digitalization in the Plastics Industry". The Linz Institute of Technology (LIT) has committed itself to set up and run an Industry 4.0 pilot plant. The objective is to simulate industral production being penetrated by digital systems and to push potentials and synergies already existing. Of course always focussing on the human being, the environment and the economy. Klaus Straka will pinpoint this concept, explaining how digitized information can work for us, finally resulting in the development of new business models.

Keynote The Plastics Industry 2025: Future Challenges

Dipl.-Ing. Sven Wolf provides insights into research and develops strategic targets for implementation together with you.

According to forecasts global plastics consumption will rise up to 400 or 500 mio tons by 2030. World population, too, keeps rising and requires among others hygienically flawless food packaging, medical products like syringes or infusion bags, electronical devices as well as components for the car, the construction or the energy industry. Simultaneously, plastic poses one of the major threats to our world. So plastic is regarded as both relevant and destructive to the system. Hence the only solution is to re- or up-cycle instead of permanently producing new plastic products. With a more sustainable circular economy concept in mind, plastic is thus processed and recycled.

Already today extruders play a vital role in processing and recycling plastic waste.
