About this conference:

Conference Topic:
The conference focuses on the dynamic automotive industry and its current challenges, which will be examined from the perspective of injection moulding. The discussions will particularly revolve around sustainability, new opportunities for structural components, optical applications, applications of plastics specifically in the battery sector, and the potential of additive manufacturing in series production, addressing various aspects to unravel the complexity of these topics.

About the Conference:
The automotive industry is currently undergoing a remarkable metamorphosis, driven by the growing awareness of sustainability and the associated shift towards electrified vehicles. There is a symbiotic relationship between the automotive sector and the injection moulding process. Therefore, the 6th International Injection Moulding Conference (IIMC) will comprehensively address the resulting challenges in the areas of sustainability, structural components in exterior and optical components. These central themes will be explored from various perspectives in the sessions, while the networking breaks and the accompanying exhibition of the IIMC will provide an ideal platform for exchanging ideas with experts from the automotive industry. By hosting the conference in the state-of-the-art facilities of the Plastics Innovation Center at IKV, the event seamlessly connects the latest research breakthroughs with industrial advancements, creating extremely valuable synergies.

The conference is specifically aimed at international executives and experts from various fields such as design, development, parts and mould-making, application technology, production, and quality assurance in the automotive industry. Additionally, scientists and researchers are also invited to participate. The IIMC serves as a global networking hub and this year, it focuses more strongly on the automotive industry. The carefully curated selection of topics and high-calibre speakers fosters collaboration among stakeholders across the entire value chain, encompassing both product and technology development. The core themes are carefully selected based on real-world challenges and prevailing industry trends, providing a solid foundation for numerous stimulating discussions.
