IWF 2008 Conference Program to Include Plastics

IWF 2008 will feature an expanded technical and business conference program designed to educate IWF 2008 buyers with the latest information on technology, manufacturing and business techniques. Experts from a wide variety of industry segments will headline the program at the International Woodworking Machinery and Furniture Supply Fair—USA®, in Atlanta, Georgia, USA Wednesday to Saturday August 20 to 23, 2008.

The 2008 conference program focuses on advancing business management skills; implementing profitable, efficient and safe production strategies; and providing information on new technology, processes and manufacturing techniques and industry and environmental standards and regulations. The diverse program includes technical and business sessions such as the economic and logistical impacts of going green, how to create a winning factory, CNC processing, lean manufacturing, expanding into new market segments, improving the bottom line and recruiting and retaining quality employees.

For the first time ever, there will be a technical conference directed to the plastics industry entitled Effective CNC Processing of Advanced Materials and Plastics. Speakers will discuss the importance of proper tooling and specific machinery options necessary for achieving a quality edge finish on both hard and soft advanced materials including thermoplastic materials. Both routing and sawing of plastics will be discussed. Speakers will also provide an overview of the use of advanced materials in architectural applications utilizing CNC technology for manufacturing processes. Speakers will discuss techniques in manufacturing processes and design applications of advanced materials such as: PVCs, resins, acrylics, mdf, quartz, synthetics spun cast fiber reinforced polymer (FRP), cellular PVC and engineered flat panel products. The session will target both wood processors interested in cutting plastics and plastic fabricators interested in increasing productivity and enhancing edge finish and part quality to serve new and developing markets.

IWF 2008 will present more than 1,300 exhibits of machinery, supplies and services for woodworking and related industries including plastics in more than 800,000 net square feet of floor space.
