In order to ensure the transfer of know-how and technology in times of the pandemic, the Manmade Fibers segment of the Swiss Oerlikon Group will commence a new webinar series in November. Four interesting technology lectures are planned to take place in 2020, which will be held in English. Current trends in the production of manmade fibres as well as Oerlikon’s technology solutions will be presented and discussed with participants.
