Manchester Polymer Group highlights 3D printing and traditional Plastic Processing techniques at Manchester Science Festival
The MPG team will be running their interactive show at this very popular regional festival for the 5th year in row.
Various plastic samples ranging in size and complexity of
printed and moulded objects will be on display at The Museum of Science and
industry, Manchester during the Manchester Science Festival.
The MPG workshop, in conjunction with TRI-TECH 3D, explores the
rapidly-evolving field of 3D printing and its growing impact on society with 3D
printing enabling engineers and designers to manufacture things they couldn’t
make with traditional methods. In addition to the samples on display,
film of the 3D printing process will also be shown.
The workshop, Design and Moulding of Plastic, will also
feature actual and traditional plastic moulding using the vacuum forming and
injection moulding processes, in association with C.R. Clarke. Film of the various
plastic manufacturing processes will also be on display.
The Manchester Science Festival runs from 24 October to 3 November 2013 and is free
to enter. The MPG workshop runs on 29 and 30 October in the Science Platform area. Please come along and visit us.
