Gary Broadhead, sales director of our Industrial Lasers Group, reports back on the recent PDM show in Telford.
Billed as the leading exhibition and conference for the UK plastics industry, PDM Event 2016 didn’t disappoint. Held over two days at the Telford International Centre, the show welcomed plastic moulders from all different industrial sectors, a great deal of whom were extremely interested in the different laser solutions we offer.
The show proved to be the ideal platform for us to discuss our laser marking, welding and cutting solutions for the plastics industry. We took a Datalogic Ulyxe laser marker along with us, which enabled us to demonstrate first-hand the high-quality and high-speed marking that can be achieved on plastics.
Suitable for use as a standalone product or as part of an industrial production line, this compact laser marker is extremely cost-effective, without compromising on performance.
For the majority of the visitors to the show, their go-to technologies for marking are vibro etching, tampo printing or ink jet. What impressed them most about the Ulyxe in particular was the quality of the mark that can be achieved, as well as the flexibility of a programmable solution.
Alongside the Ulyxe we had a whole host of samples on display. Representing applications from across many industries, including automotive and white goods, our various samples showed the outstanding results that can be achieved with laser cutting, welding and marking technologies.
A great deal of the visitors to our stand were amazed by just what can be achieved with the various technologies we offer. Operating in industries where time and cost efficiencies are paramount, delegates at the show were impressed at the time savings that can be made with laser cutting, welding and marking, at an attractive price point.
We have come away from the show with a large number of companies that want us to visit them for product demonstrations, across all the different technologies we provide. It is important that people see for themselves the great results that can be achieved by working alongside our team to ensure the most suitable solution not only for their industry, but also their business too.
Overall, it was a really enjoyable, vibrant show and we’re looking forward to joining the next event in Manchester next year.
