The 5th Teijin Aramid European Conference was a success with many visitors and interesting speakers from the reinforced rubber products industry. Siebe Nooij, managing director of TANIQ, gave a technical presentation on fibre reinforcement of rubber products. The focus of the presentation was on how an improvement of the reinforcement structure can improve your product performance or reduce your material costs. The second topic was on how industrial robots can be used to manufacture reinforced rubber products of high quality in an automated fashion. Besides a technical presentation, TANIQ made a series of aramid reinforced Champagne bottles for Teijin, which were presented to the speakers at the Conference.
