UK plastics expert to share knowledge at AUSPLAS 2011


The Society of Plastics Engineers AN-Z have confirmed that Dr Robin Kent will be the Keynote Speaker for their technical day seminars at AUSPLAS 2011.

Energy Management in Plastics Processing will be the major topic for a round table masterclass during which Dr Kent will challenge long held manufacturing, engineering and financial beliefs on how, where and why energy is used in plastics converting operations.

Participants will be able to immediately identify and apply the cost saving opportunities within their own businesses. They will be given pre-attendance work to encourage active involvement and provide them with immediate and achievable deliverables.

The afternoon sessions are designed to provide value for a wider manufacturing, business and service audience.

These will feature Dr Kent’s presentation: There is no conflict! Sustainability-How to Make More Money and Still Be Green, where accepted concepts and “givens” will be further challenged.
