Exhibitors will showcase more machines in NPE 2012 than in its previous edition, according to SPI
Exhibitors will showcase more machines in NPE 2012 than in its previous edition, according to SPI
NPE 2012 will mark "The Return of the Machines", as announced by SPI: The Plastics Industry Trade Association in the US, organizer of Americas' largest plastics trade show, on January 30.

The triennial NPE international plastics exposition will next take place on April 1-5 in Orlando, Florida, after 40 years in which the show was held in Chicago. "The improved economies and logistics of the new venue have encouraged many NPE 2012 exhibitors to purchase more exhibit space and bring more machinery to the show, much of it to be operated on-site," said Gene Sanders, SPI Senior Vice President of Trade Shows and Conferences. "Contributing to this enhanced commitment by exhibitors is the steadily improving manufacturing sector of the US economy."

Mr Sanders cited reports from three exhibitors of injection molding systems and a fourth company specializing in auxiliary systems as representative of the positive responses to NPE 2012 from machinery companies, showing how the greater scale of exhibits can increase the return on trade show investment for attendees.

"We know molders want to see equipment making parts, touch the controls, witness tangible differences from what they already have, and experience for themselves what they otherwise might only see in a brochure," said David Preusse, President of Wittmann Battenfeld, Inc. "At the same time, since our company handles large projects such as new molding plant launches, NPE 2012 will give us an opportunity to show that we can produce a state of the art molding shop in only eight setup days."

Mr Preusse revealed that, in comparison with NPE 2009, the Wittmann Battenfeld booth will be larger and have more machines in operation, among which are six integrated turnkey molding cells up to 1,000 tons, complete with robots, temperature controllers, dryers, loaders, and downstream automation, along with web-based support service.

Engel Machinery, Inc will have 33% more equipment at its booth than in 2009, noted Engel North America President Mark Sankovitch. "All of our equipment at NPE 2012 will be in operation, including part molding, downstream processing, and automated part handling," he said. "A machine in operation allows visitors to see for themselves that the specifications quoted - cycle times, energy usage, and so forth - are achievable in operation, not just on paper."

Sumitomo (SHI) Demag brought only three machines to NPE 2009 but will be exhibiting 12 machines ranging in clamp force from 55-496 tons at NPE 2012, all of them running. "We're making a major investment in NPE 2012 because of the improved economy, everything Orlando has to offer, and the need for our industry to come together and strengthen its capabilities," said Jim Mitchell, Executive Vice President.

The exhibit of auxiliary equipment systems manufacturer Conair Group will be "the biggest we've ever had since we started exhibiting at NPE in 1963," said Larry Doyle, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing, "and we'll take about 30% more equipment to NPE 2012 than we did in 2009."

SPI also announced that it has extended the deadline for entering the International Plastics Design Competition (IPDC) to February 29.
