Francis Ward MD Jonathan Wurr has been asked to speak at the forthcoming Association of Rotational Moulders Australasia (ARMA) Conference in Sydney, 22-24 June 2014. The Conference and Trade Fair, which takes place at the Crowne Plaza Coogee Beach, is followed by Rotomould on the Road in Auckland, New Zealand on 26 June where Jonathan will repeat his talks on steel tank lining and special drum design. Details of Jonathan’s talks: Rotolining Steel Containers with Bondable PE ‘A look at the years of experience that Francis Ward have in rotolining steel chemical tanks for transport of corrosive liquids. Francis Ward regularly rotoline fabricated steel tanks from 250 litres to 10,000 litres for a variety of markets. Jonathan will discuss the practical and technical experiences of his company and give advice for anyone with an interest in this market.’ Design & Manufacture of an Annular Drum for the Nuclear Industry ‘A decade ago, Francis Ward solved a challenge of producing a self bunded, annular drum container for 45-litres of fissile material. Jonathan will share the rotomoulding design challenges of producing a drum just 50mm wide and how they overcame them to produce the most unique container ever certified in the UK.’ In addition to Jonathan’s talks there is an extensive Conference programme which includes workshops on latest trends in rotational moulding and crosslinkable solutions for the roto industry, a Qenos factory tour and, of course, the Gala dinner. For those members who are unable to attend the main Conference, ARMA are also holding a one day workshop in Auckland, which will feature a selection of the talks, including Jonathan’s. Jonathan will be providing a daily blog from the event, and his talks will also be available to download from the website afterwards.
