In particular, innovative solutions for more sustainability in injection moulding and further digitalisation of production processes met with great interest. The two topics are closely linked. “Digitalisation is an important precursor to the circular economy”, said Steger. “Smart assistance systems and interconnected systems help us to leverage the full potential of injection moulding machines, for […]
