BOLTON, Ontario -- In September 2014, Husky Injection Molding Systems hosted the next stop on its 2014 Husky World Tour – the Schöttli Medical Conference in Shanghai, China. This targeted event featured in-depth presentations and discussions with nearly 70 attendees, made up of both current and prospective customers.

The one-day event included networking opportunities and presentations from industry experts, including John Taylor from B. Braun Group, Mark Thompson from Keller and Heckman LLP, and Sophia Wang, Consulting Director at Frost & Sullivan. Discussing trends in the medical part industry, the day provided topical technical presentations focusing on improving production quality while reducing cost and risk for high precision, high volume, plastic medical parts.

The first Husky World Tour event co-hosted by Schöttli, an organization recently acquired by Husky, delivered insights on several topics, including The Potential of Lightweighting Medical Components, Innovations in Medical Mold Technology for Complex and High Precision Parts, and Medical Market Trends in the Asian Market. These technical presentations offered attendees insight into solutions to some of today’s most pertinent injection molding challenges, and demonstrated the latest technologies available from Husky that respond to these challenges.

“The Husky World Tour event in Shanghai was a great way for us to connect with our local customers, and featured excellent discussions, fascinating presentations, and really great networking opportunities,” said Husky’s Henry Zhang, Director of Business Development for Medical and Specialty Packaging. “Focusing on the challenges facing such a specific market really allowed us to delve deeply into issues and trends that the Medical market in Asia-Pacific deal with on a regular basis, and gain a better understanding of where Husky and Schöttli can position our solutions. The precision required in today’s competitive medical market requires us to go above and beyond, and targeted events like these provide a great opportunity for us to share the tools and insights we have as an industry-leading organization.”

Husky also presented its comprehensive range of products and services to help medical customers improve product quality, reduce variability and increase efficiency.

The Husky World Tour 2014 is a series of global customer events taking place throughout the year, in various locations across the globe. With multiple events spanning multiple locations, the tour gives both 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. Other Husky World Tour events are scheduled for 2014, including a Specialty Closures Conference in Bangkok in November, and a Beverage Packaging Conference in Casablanca in November.
