Hi-tech heats up
Innovation… What does it mean? How do you inspire it? And which innovations are poised to make the biggest impact? What was sci-fi yesterday is reality today, as innovations we once saw only in movies have become commonplace technology.
In this issue, we hone in on innovation. We point out some examples of technologies and concepts that originated in science-fiction, but can now be found in everyday life. From drones to additive manufacturing or nanotechnologies, standards are being developed to help develop solutions. It is from these solutions that advanced technologies continue to thrive to create efficiencies and simplify our worlds.
With around 250 million tonnes of plastics consumed worldwide, ensuring the highest possible levels of safety is one of the industry's greatest priorities.
Here, as the new Chair of the ISO technical committee for plastics and rubber machines, Claudio Celata shares his thoughts about the industry, its exponential growth, and why uniform and consistent standards are important.
Plastics have become essential in a wide range of sectors.
