It is with no small amount of pride that we can announce that ColVisTec’s very own Fuat Eker, the Director of Sales, Marketing, and Customization, has been asked to participate in the upcoming “360° Masterbatch Workshop” as a lecturer.
Organized by the renowned company Leistritz, this comprehensive seminar is set to take place in Nuremberg, Germany, on November 6-7, 2018. This two-day workshop will primarily be held at the Sheraton Carlton Hotel but will also include a visit to Leistritz’s state-of-the-art laboratory.
The purpose of the seminar is to provide a thorough overview of the many aspects involved in masterbatch production. It is important to point out that this includes both extensive theoretical lectures as well as practical explanations and live machine demonstrations.
What is more, attendees will find themselves with an exclusive opportunity to meet and interact with masterbatch experts from around the world. These specialists all bring unique points of view that come from their many years of successful work in the extrusion industry, making them invaluable sources of information and know-how. By asking their questions directly, attendees will be able to assess the merits of adopting new approaches, clear up any lingering doubts they may have, and receive in-depth observations regarding this stimulating subject.
As such, this event is suitable for a wide range of potential attendees. On the one hand, newcomers to the plastics extrusion industry can use the wealth of knowledge this workshop offers to give their burgeoning business a head start. On the other, industry veterans can ensure they stay up-to-date with the latest developments and use the experience of the lecturers to build upon their existing expertise.
