basis for scale up projections.
is essential to convey information to the recipient in a fashion that is readily understood with the initial delivery and the subsequent reference. Communication in verbal and written form has been a strong point evidenced by the numerous published works on processing, products and general pultrusion technology over 25 years. Communication to machine operators, production supervisors and the degreed engineers require different levels of detail to avoid TMI (Too Much Information) that can affect comprehension and application of training tools.
can be provided on a per project basis or through an affordable
retainer relationship that allows for frequent and informal
requests for assistance to bypass the cumbersome quotation
and work definition process. The goal of SPRI is to always
be current and aware of global developments that are of
interest to the pultrusion community and to regularly convey
information to subscribers to the technology support programs
