TEL: 734.741.7000 Plastics Technology Executive Editor Matt Naitove posted two early reports on the Fakuma plastics fair (Friedrich- shafen, Germany; Oct. 16-20). Trexel highlighted a non-destructive method to test the internal structure of molded parts, while Milacron showed the first integra- tion of the iMFLUX low- pressure molding technology into its machine controller. (For more news from Fakuma see Naitove's report on p. 14.) Plastics Technology was on hand in late October in Ann Arbor, Mich., when injec- tion molding machine manufacturer Ube Machinery Inc. officially opened the new fourth bay of its factory. The expan- sion will allow it to double capacity for machine assembly and rebuilds. To mark the occasion, Ube invited local dignitar- ies to participate in a traditional Kagami Biraki ceremony, replete with mallets and sake barrels. Kampai!
