Registration is Now Open for Molding 2022
Mark your calendars! Plastics Technology’s annual injection conference is scheduled for November 8-10th in Charlotte, North Carolina. The conference has been held for more than 30 years and provides excellent networking opportunities and educational programs for the injection molding community. This year’s program highlights topics from all aspects of the injection molding process. Molding 2022 will focus extra attention on sustainability, and comprehensively address machinery, processes, and materials. All registrants for Molding 2022 will also be given access to the MoldMaking 2022 conference, and between the two events, more than 50 experts will be presenting. After the conference, some attendees will be able to attend a workshop and tour at the Polymers Center of Excellence. The conference’s Hot Shots parts competition will return this year, and molders will have the chance to enter their molding achievements for the chance to win coverage in Plastics Technology magazine.

X2F and Covestro to Collaborate on In-Mold Electronics for Automotive Applications
Covestro and X2F have announced a unique collaboration to develop a thermally conductive automotive heat-sink with in-mold electronics. This project will make use of X2F’s transformative controlled viscosity technology and samples are set to be displayed in late October at the K 2022 show in Germany. This new component will be both lighter and more affordable than comparable cast aluminum heat-sinks. The processes used will allow in-mold assembly and integration of LED modules directly into the housing, which will eliminate much of the labor and weight associated with manual installation. X2F’s technology has been demonstrated in high-volume manufacturing and is production ready. X2F has recently added a rotary table to their manufacturing facility, which has reduced cycle times and allows for higher volume production of its controlled viscosity molding machine. Currently the company is producing up to four million parts per year, serving the electronics, automotive, industrial, and medical industries. Read more here.
