The versatility of plastics and their processing provide the basis not only for innovation but also for the sustainability of our industry. Whether the subject is Industry 4.0, additive manufacturing, lightweight construction or production efficiency, plastics play a key role in all the relevant areas, and the Colloquium will offer answers to issues such as these. In plenary and keynote lectures, renowned experts from the industry will put forward their positions, and 36 specialist lectures from members of IKV will present the Institute's latest research. Within the scope of IKV 360°, they will demonstrate examples of this research live on their machines and testing equipment. Above all, however, they invite you to join in the discussion with the experts from industry and science, the IKV staff and the entire IKV network.
The event will take place from 24-25 February 2016, in Aachen, Germany.
