Graco (Minneapolis, Minn.) is presenting a paper in the conference titled, "Point of Use Resin Handling for Prepreg Manufacturing Processes." The presenter will be Mac Larsen, director of application development. This paper will discuss the current methods used to manage resins in a typical prepreg manufacturing facility and review how point-of-use melting and meter-mix successfully address increased capacity and yield.
The paper will be presented Tuesday, Oct. 14, 8:30 a.m.
