On Thursday evening, 16 June 2022, after a long time, the FTPO hosted the Polymer Evening on the topic "Drying of technical plastic polymers".
The lecture was led by Ing. Robert Tesar from Vismec Srl. (Italy). Ing. Robert Tesar studied plastics Engineer at the technicalinstitute TGM in Vienna. His work experience includes production of plastic molding in HB-Plastic and Philips in Austria, technical applications in Arburg in Germany and Engel in Austria and finally sales and technical consultant in Maguire in UK and USA and Piovan, Moretto and Vismec in Italy.
Quite some time has passed since our last Polymer Evening, so we were extremely happy with the response of the participants. More than 40 representatives of various Slovenian companies and representatives of our faculty, received answers to many questions regarding the drying of plastic materials. Different types of plastic materials and drying principles were presented, as well as which drying technologies are available on the market. After the lecture, a rich discussion on the topic was developed among the participants, and at the reception there was an opportunity for networking.
With such events, the FTPO wants to continue to offer current content in the field of polymer technology and to maintain its connection with the economy. The next FTPO polymer evening is already planned for the fall months.
