Sebastian Huennefeld, Product Manager of Blown Film Extrusion at Windmoeller & Hoelscher (W&H), will present “Packaging 4.0: Fiction or Reality” at the first-ever Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) conference co-located at SPE’s ANTEC Anaheim 2017 on 10 May.
The inaugural, all-day conference – called “Industry 4.0” (www.4spe.org/industry4.0) – will take place at the Anaheim Hilton, during the final day of the May 7-10 ANTEC event.
Huennefeld’s presentation will address hopes and expectations created by smart manufacturing and the trend toward the interconnected factory generally known by the term Industry 4.0, and begin to differentiate between fiction/perception vs. strides that have been made.
He will present two case studies within the flexible packaging industry – one about stretch film and the other barrier film production – and focus on how the value chain can be transformed to benefit consumers, manufacturers and the equipment manufacturers under Industry 4.0.
Sebastian Huennefeld has worked at W&H in extrusion for six years. He holds a degree in Management and Engineering from the University of Bremen in Germany.
