Husky World Tour for specialty closures stops in Austria

Husky Injection Moulding Systems hosted its next stop on the Husky World Tour 2013 – a two-day conference on Specialty Closures held at the Technical Centre in Waidhofen, Austria.

For this event, business leaders from throughout the packaging industry from more than 20 different countries came to collaborate and exchange ideas about the latest trends and innovations in specialty closures manufacturing.

The conference showcased Husky’s technology for specialty closures manufacturing. The event included tours, case studies, demonstrations, one-on-one discussions and presentations from both Husky and industry experts. Presentation topics covered advanced mould technologies, the value of complete specialty closure systems, as well as a presentation from guest speaker Joseph Everard, Senior Manager, Mold Management from Unilever.

François Styga, Husky’s General Manager, Husky-KTW, said, “Our specialty closures business is off to a record start in 2013, which has been made possible over the past year by the work of the combined Husky team along with our customers. This solid foundation will allow us to continue to develop solutions that will help our customers become more competitive and profitable.”

A central product demonstration included Husky’s unique EASYcube mould technology, which is designed to provide the best platform for moulding multi-material closures. As a standalone mould, EASYcube is uniquely designed to function in standard machines. This makes it a viable solution for new programmes, as well as for aftermarket tooling programmes to leverage existing assets. When developed as part of a complete Husky system, EASYcube brings the added benefits of improved cycle times, fast mould changeover and installation for reduced downtime and simplified operation and data management through integrated mould and machine controls.

David Head, Senior Purchasing Manager, Packaging for PZ Cussons in Great Britain commented, “The networking opportunities were excellent and I have come away with a much better understanding of what Husky can provide in terms of new innovations on tooling, the benefits of having a strong cross-functional team involved at the start of a project and the value in having Husky included at the front-end.”

The Husky World Tour 2013 runs a series of global customer events taking place throughout the year in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific. and imparts current and prospective customers more direct access to Husky’s latest technologies at a local level while providing targeted solutions to help customers reduce variability, improve part cost and increase productivity. The next event is a South American Beverage Packaging Conference taking place in São Paolo, Brazil on May 14, 2013.
