Finding Opportunities

The year is off to a great start for the plastic’s industry. Plastic shapes continue to provide new solutions, led in part by innovations in some of the materials you will find in this issue. Fabricators and machinists also have incredible machinery and tooling to create parts and assemblies that meet the growing and changing needs of their customers.

And with those growing and changing needs comes opportunity. Any company that wants to succeed in the continuously changing landscape of business today must look for ways to stay vital. New and innovative materials can help you explore those opportunities and new industries leading to new customers.

So to get you started, we kick off with a variety of saws and tooling for cutting plastic sheet. Our spotlight features some of the best options available to plastic distributors and fabricators today. From high precision horizontals to space saving verticals, these saws offer increased output and accuracy at a variety of price points and configurations to meet your production needs. When it comes to saw blades that run faster and cut smoother, we have those too.

Next up, with more to offer than ever before, the wide range of see-through plastics finds applications almost everywhere you look. They can be found in industries from architectural glazing and P.O.P. displays to aerospace and medical devices, there is almost nothing these plastics cannot do. This year our See-Through Plastics PLUS spotlight has a mix of materials, machinery, polishes and tooling for working with these versatile plastics.

Finally in Safety Solutions, Jack Podojil reviews OSHA’s top 10 violations for 2018. According to OSHA, the list serves to increase awareness of these standards so employers can take steps to find and fix the hazards to prevent injury or illness. Fall protection has topped the list for eight years in a row.

We hope your year is off to a great start and is filled with innovation. To find more materials, machinery, products and services that will help you find new opportunities this year, manage your subscription or contact our advertisers, search our website.
