Sumitomo (SHI) Demag to provide new training courses for 2023 DIP finalists

We are delighted to announce that our finalists in this year’s competition are to be given a two-day

training course tailored to DIP, as part of their prize, thanks to one of the world’s leading

manufacturers of injection moulding machines.

In a brand new industry-sponsorship from Sumitomo (SHI) Demag, the training course will be offered

to all six finalists, and will take place on May 3-4 at the company’s training academy in Daventry.

The course will take place three weeks before the six DIP finalists present their products to the

competition’s panel of industry judges at the final judging session in London, giving them time to

take on board new ideas as they finesse both their products and their presentations.

Sumitomo (SHI) Demag is part of a global organisation which is a world leader in its field, specialising

in the production of electric, hybrid and servo hydraulic injection moulding machines. These are

supplied to all sectors, including automotive, packaging, electric/electronic, medical and

pharmaceutical, building products and leisure.

The company is also renowned for its outstanding training, with a range of courses organised on an

annual schedule from its UK based training academy.

Chairman of DIP, Martin Sixsmith, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have Sumitomo (SHI) Demag

on board for the 2023 competition, welcoming them to our ‘stable’ of highly valued sponsors. This is

a really great opportunity for our finalists to gain some hands-on experience from industry experts in

the world of material processing and manufacturing. It will help them refine their ideas prior to the

DIP final judging session and will stand them in great stead in their future careers as product
