The Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) Extrusion Division and the SPE Eastern New England Section will co-host the Screw Design Conference-Topcon on June 19-20, 2024, at UMass Lowell in Lowell, Mass. 

This highly technical program will focus upon screw design principles for single- and twin-screw extruders with areas of focus to include designs for melt temperature and gel management, gel minimization, bioplastics, recycled materials and foaming. Beyond screw designers, the program is open to anyone responsible for any type of extrusion operation to evaluate existing extrusion equipment, as well as prepare for future projects. 

To be considered to give a presentation, please submit a talk title and abstract on or before Dec. 15 to Technical Chair Eldridge M. Mount III, e-mail [email protected]. A limited number of corporate sponsorships are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
