Last week DSM Composite Resins, largest producer of structural resins in Europe, announced a price increase due to the continuous rise of raw materials, transportation and energy costs.
As an additional consequence of the rise in costs, DSM Composite Resins today says it is reducing the capacity of some of its standard products. The affected products are those that suffered most from the increasing raw material costs. DSM Composite Resins stays fully committed to optimize output and service of all its other products.
ZSK will hold its bi-annual technology showcase on 21-22 September 2018 at its Krefeld, Germany, headquarters. The Embroidery Technology Show assembles more than 25 exhibitors from around the world to discuss emerging trends in the embroidery manufacturing industry and demonstrate the latest products produced using techniques such as tailored fibre placement (TFP) or smart textiles.
SGL Carbon and Fraunhofer IGCV have officially opened the Fibre Placement Centre (FPC) at SGL's site in Meitingen, Germany.
