The topics at the Leistritz Workshop, which took place in Nuremberg on November 8 and 9, 2017 were trendsetting and in tune with the times. Under the motto "Make the Compounding XXperience" the international participants witnessed the proven concept: interesting lectures of renowned experts and live demonstrations in the technical center.
Not only were topics like cable compounding, EPS extrusion or engineering compounds on the agenda, but Leistritz also showed the participants the company's history. After all, Leistritz is celebrating their 80th anniversary. "Our history is marked by technical highlights and it is the basis of our future," summerized General Manager Sven Wolf in his presentation. It primarily dealt with the megatrends which will define global population in the years to come. He specifically described the effect those trends will have on the business model of a machine builder like Leistritz. The topic of (future)trends was also embraced in other papers, which dealt with smart engineering, smart services of smart sensors.
