Composites One to Hold Closed Molding Super Session at IBEX 2014

16 September 2014

Composites One, along with the Closed Mold Alliance, will present a free Closed Molding Super Session at IBEX 2014 in Tampa, Florida, US on Monday, September 29 from 12-4 pm.

 

The company states the session will provide manufacturers with a roadmap through the closed molding process. Attendees will hear real-life conversion stories and learn about time studies, cost estimates and manufacturing efficiencies.

 

Composites One explains the session will be divided into four key segments. “The goal is for all attendees to leave the session with the knowledge they need to make the decision to convert to Closed Molding,” said Marcy Offner, Director of Marketing Communications for Composites One. 

 

According to Composites One, the session will focus on examining real manufacturers’ case studies to determine what drivers motivated them to convert to closed molding. Necessary cost models will be reviewed along with critical tooling decisions needed for the conversion. Finally the session will look at creating manufacturing cells, which will guide attendees through the production flow of a closed mold shop. 

 

Composites One knows converting to closed molding is an important decision, and once the decision has been made there are many factors that will be part of moving to these more efficient processes. This super session was designed for those decision-makers and will provide manufacturers with the necessary tools to switch to Closed Molding.

 

Also at IBEX this year, Composites One will present a live 45-minute Advanced Composites Workshop. The session will be held on Wednesday, October 1 from 4-5 pm.

 

Composites One will be exhibiting at stand 941 at the show.
