IML is a rapidly growing market sector in the Asia Pacific region and
is committed to establishing
a strong regional presence to support this growth and to build a strong specialty business.
Working in partnership with Shanghai Darong
has been a mutually beneficial relationship and a
good strategy to bring this goal closer to fruition.
The IML technical seminar was our first attempt to collaborate to a wide audience in China
about various important IML topics and bring together all those involved in the supply chain in
order to educate, network and share information. As a global provider of packaging solutions,
hosting these events not only allows us to share our expertise, but also to listen and learn from
the market and help promote a better understanding between those involved. All presentations
were communicated in Chinese and topics covered included global IML market review,
product range and film solutions, IML ink and overlacquer technology, injection mold and
machine technology, robotics technology and Shanghai Darong’s IML live examples. In addition, various exhibits of IML samples from local
and global markets were on display to demonstrate to delegates the diversity of end-user applications for IML technology. Attendance for the
seminar was excellent with 110 delegates filling the function room.
is highly appreciative of everyone who attended the event, with many

The delegates were from a range of IML related sectors from several different divisions like Procurement, Production, Technical Service and R&D.
