ANAHEIM, CA and FORT WAYNE, IN--(Marketwired - Feb 6, 2017) - MD&M West 2017 is the perfect venue for attendees to share ideas and encourage innovation using the hashtag #TrelleborgThinkTank, an exciting initiative from Trelleborg, the global leader in engineered polymer solutions. Its aim is to capture ideas, resolve challenges and innovate solutions -- all of which will be sketched and brought to life in booth 2818's designated wall of inspiration.
Drew Rogers, Global Director, Healthcare & Medical for Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, says: "#TrelleborgThinkTank is an ingenious way to collaborate and brainstorm with experts in engineering, R&D and the medical device community in order to develop ideas and provide advice. It will also help facilitate new solutions to address healthcare and medical challenges that face device makers, medical OEMs and pharmaceutical manufacturers today."
Design engineers have come to understand the importance of increased performance, agility and usage while managing evolving compliance requirements, which often starts with making the right choice, beginning with the smallest parts and materials. #TrelleborgThinkTank unlocks the innovation of smarter products, better engineered devices and next generation solutions.
A top priority for Trelleborg is to continue to learn from the industry by listening to customers and the challenges they face. In the spirit of innovation, Trelleborg invites attendees to share their ideas and challenges at booth 2818 and participate in the sketches of forward thinking and innovations to be displayed on the #TrelleborgThinkTank wall.
