Tour at Reliance World Corporation and Seminar at Autodesk

Updated: Feb 6, 2019

This SPE event will commence with a tour of the Reliance Worldwide Corporation (RWC) factory in Croydon before moving to Autodesk in Kilsyth for the seminar.

Autodesk has become a global organisation and in this process has absorbed the Moldflow technology which had its beginning in Melbourne. This seminar will feature an update about Moldflow under the title: Past, Present and Future.

The seminar will commence with a presentation about Reliance Worldwide Corporation which has grown from a brass and copper materials based company into an important plastics converting company. The company is the World’s largest manufacturer of push to connect plumbing fittings and specialist water control valves.

Before making a laboratory tour at Autodesk we will have a demonstration of Virtual Reality applications.
