Columbia City, IN: MonTech USA’s sales and applications team will be speaking at multiple ACS Rubber Groups in November including the Michigan Rubber Group and Mid-Atlantic Rubber and Plastics Group.

Michigan Rubber Group:

MonTech Presentation Topic: Robotics, Automation, Smart Factories and Manufacturing Trends in the Rubber Industry  

A smart factory is fully connected throughout the value chain.  Smart factories integrate data from all assets of organization to drive activities throughout the manufacturing network.  The rubber industry is moving towards fully integrating all data in their processes.  Smart factory initiatives are crucial for staying ahead in today’s competitive market. This presentation explores smart factories and the different methods rubber manufacturers are using to become fully integrated.

Date & Location:
November 7th - University Club of MSU, 3435 Forest Rd. Lansing, MI 48910

Mid-Atlantic Rubber & Plastics Group:

MonTech Presentation Topic: Practical RPA Tests for Production Quality Control and Compound Development

The Rubber Process Analyzer (RPA) has become an integral part of modern elastomer processing control and compound development. With a broad range of strain/frequency and temperature/pressure combinations, the RPA is a highly versatile tool for executing dynamic tests that reveal the consistency of incoming polymers, modeling process performance of compounds, and predicting field performance of finished products.

These dynamic tests are easily implemented and can quickly reveal material properties that are useful to manufacturers of compounds and finished elastomer products. These properties can be measured for actionable quality control metrics and performance predictions for almost any type of elastomer component, in any application, including the oil and gas industry. This presentation will outline several of the most common RPA dynamic tests in use today, and describe the purpose, setup and execution of these tests, along with a practical analysis of the results.

Date & Location:
November 15th - Iacocca Hall, Lehigh University, 111 Research Dr. Bethlehem, PA 18015

Hope to see you at both events.
