Abstract
Thin Wall Packaging Asia 2017 is aimed at the value chain participants in the thermoformed and injection moulded packaging. The growth of organised retail in Asia as well as more formalised approach to product branding will have a significant impact on packaging demand in the region. The industry is in need of a clearer definition to facilitate the change. The new requirements are expected to drive the development of fast-cycle lightweight packaging, barrier packaging for long-life products and packaging with superior decoration (IML). Thin wall plastic packaging like tubs, cups, pots, trays and clamshells, provides a means of supplying consumer appeal, convenience and product protection.

Wind Turbine Blade Manufacture 2017
ID
875871
Dates
12 Dec 2017 - 14 Dec 2017
Location
Dusseldorf, Germany
Abstract
The world continues moving towards a new era in renewable power technologies. Massive megawatt wind turbines are playing a key part in the current success of sustainable energy as they facilitate a continuous reduction of cost of wind energy. If long term reliability can be ensured then the costs of power generation are further reduced due to a lack of down time. There are now wind farms that are several decades old, providing vital information on durability and efficiency of power conversion for new plant development. Environmental factors represent the biggest hazard to structures, starting with lightning strikes, icing weighing down the rotor, erosion of blades caused by rain or sand in deserts, and salt water spray contact in offshore installations. AMI’s Wind Turbine Blade Manufacture 2017 conference examines the manufacturing and performance of wind blade composites for large windmills. There are challenges to be overcome in production such as bringing in cost-effective automation and speeding up manufacturing, as well as developing inspection technologies for quality control both in the factory and at the installation site of the turbine. Longer blades are coming on to the market to raise power generation capability and some companies are choosing to develop modular structures for ease of transportation. This is a global marketplace with suppliers going where the demand is greatest.
