The health crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic has pushed prices up in transport modes during 2020 and continues its upward progression so far in 2021. This increase has been more pronounced in maritime transport.
Another difficult year for trade fairs and events:
As every year, at this time, we would be preparing our trip to Cologne to attend ISM 2021.
Fair managers took the difficult decision to cancel the event and to delay to the next year 2022, that is because the current situation of COVID-19 makes it difficult to celebrate an event of these characteristics (37,000 visitors from more than 148 countries).
The automotive quality management system:
Some years ago, the association “International Automotive Task Force” (IATF), formed by different manufacturers with the aim of improving the quality in automotive products, developed IATF 16949: 2016.
Coextrusion is a process by which we obtain a final product from the mixture of two or more materials that are different. These two or more materials are extruded simultaneously.
Coextrusion seeks to cover certain requirements, whether functional or aesthetic, when these cannot be covered with the use of a single material.
For years our company which is dedicated to extrusion of plastics, has been developing, together with its customers, environmentally friendly products, such as bio-compostable or PLA. There is currently an increase in interest in this type of product. However, this interest has allowed us to see that there is still a certain confusion of concepts regarding this field. Let's look to clarify them.
