Thanks must go to Leisa, Michelle and the rest of the team from ARMA for treating the Australasian Rotational Moulding industry to an amazing event. There were a range of inspiring local and international speakers. Highlights included: Marco Serralunga inspiring us to play with our designs and seek beauty in everything we do. I think that everyone would agree that Oliver Wandres from Maus amazed us with what is possible if people take tooling and mould servicing seriously. Jonathan Wurr showed us that really standards and regulations can be our friends, helping us to create lucrative markets that scare most operators away. Finally, Bill Spenceley gave us some real life tools to get a bit more energy smart in our factories.

It is always difficult to judge how your own presentations are received. However, our talk about some of the issues we have discovered in comparing Internally Cooled parts with standard parts has generated some very interesting discussions. It is always nice to know that people are listening when giving a presentation – especially when discussing some quite technical problems!
