On the occasion of the next conference of the Society of Plastics Engineers – European Thermoforming Division from 3– 4 April 2014 in Prague, Czech Republic, thermoformers are invited to participate in the 5th European Thermoforming Parts Competition.
Originality, creativity, mould complexity and technical ability will be the judging criteria in order to promote advanced design and developments from a structural innovation perspective.
Entries with thick gauge parts will be possible in the categories Vehicle/Automotive, Industrial, Point of Purchase/Displays, Technical Applications and Sanitary. Thin gauge parts will be judged in the categories Food Applications, Medical Applications, Electronical Applications and General Packaging.
The essential points of the European Thermoforming Parts Competition are the design-orientated application of materials and the successful combination of technical innovation and design quality.
Exceed the bounds of materials applications, present new application opportunities, combine the traditional with the innovative, take new steps in combining material and design to present the importance of materials for a design-orientated application: these are the aims of the European Thermoforming Parts Competition.
The award winners will be presented at the 9th Biennial European Thermoforming Conference.
We look forward to receiving your contribution to the European Thermoforming Parts Competition 2014!
