Caplugs Offers Free Supply Chain Virtual Conference

The conference will address designing product protection for greater supply chain agility and ROI. 

Caplugs announced it is hosting a free virtual conference via its new Caplugs Connect platform to educate viewers on various timely topics, including designing product protection for greater supply chain agility and ROI. 

The conference is intended for design engineers and other decision-makers on product protection solutions for applications in the aerospace, automotive, electronics, hydraulics, medical and other industrial sectors. 

Six experts from Caplugs will share insights to help users navigate their product protection and masking decisions across a wide range of industries. Viewers will learn how supply chain disruptions have impacted availability, and how alternative products and parts optimization with custom manufacturing or design for manufacturability can help mitigate delays and reduce costs associated with damaged products. 

Participants can attend one or more of the following sessions to attend:

Session 1: Product Protection and Masking: Ensuring Effective Solutions and Avoiding Costly “Band Aids.” John D. Gill, international sales engineer for Caplugs, and Senior Sales Engineers Jimmy Rodriguez and Todd Schuh, will discuss how choosing the right solution can impact product quality and drive cost savings. 

Session 2: Working Against the Clock: How to Navigate Tight Lead Times, Delivery Challenges, External Delays and Onshoring Strategies to Adapt to Today’s Supply Chain. In this session, Caplugs experts Christine Koch, vice president of quality and purchasing, and Vimal Venugopalan, director of business development, explain how the company has put practices into action to find greater flexibility, secure inventory and make recommendations on alternative solutions when design engineers face tight lead times, supply shortages and logistical challenges in today’s less-than-predictable supply chain.

Session 3: Design for Manufacturability – Work with Experts for an Optimized and Scalable Solution. Clint Badowski, design group leader at Caplugs, will discuss how design for manufacturability can optimize designs for higher-performing, more consistent and scalable part protection, as well as product improvements, mold longevity and efficiency.

Participants can register for free and access all sessions now on the Caplugs Connect platform at
