Robot automation and injection molding technology company Wittmann Battenfeld has announced that it has canceled its Open House and Technical Symposium, which had been scheduled to take place at its Torrington, Connecticut, USA headquarters on September 24-25, 2020.
The event, which is held every two years at Wittmann Battenfeld’s USA headquarters, normally brings in hundreds of attendees to see the latest injection molding technologies in action. At least eight operating workcells were planned for this year’s Open House, showing Wittmann Battenfeld’s one-stop shopping solutions featuring the company’s molding machines, robots and auxiliary equipment. Numerous industry partners were supplying materials, molds and hot runners and were also going to be featured at the event.
“We made this decision now as it is too difficult for our customers and partners to make plans considering the current COVID-19 crisis,” said David Preusse, president of Wittmann Battenfeld Inc. “Also, we are busy working through this situation as an essential supplier, to help our customers stay up and running, and this must take priority over the Open House,” he said.
The Open House and Technical Symposium has not been rescheduled at this time.
