Elmia is now opening new doors to make it easier for the manufacturing industry to do business. Matchmaking within the framework of Productivity Connect is a unique initiative during Elmia Polymer and the parallel fairs Elmia Automation and Elmia Welding & Joining Technology.

The new BOY 22 E plastics injection moulder uses just half as much energy as its predecessors. After its world première at Fakuma last year, it is being shown for the first time in Scandinavia at Elmia Polymer.

Future graduate engineers in design and product development are taking part in the fair this spring, thanks to a collaboration with the Institute of Technology at Linköping University. The brief: to suggest new product ideas with the help of exhibitors at the fair. The event is in the form of a competition, but the main aim is to create a meeting-place between the industry and university.

On 8-11 May the plastics and rubber industry will meet at Elmia Polymer in Jönköping, Sweden. This year the event has additional support from our Western neighbour, as the Norwegian Injection Moulding Forum is holding its annual spring conference at the fair.

“We want to see new technology, and Elmia Polymer is the ideal place for that,” says Lars Stenerud, chairman of the Norwegian Injection Moulding Forum.
