Walailak University by Science Park in collaboration with the Center of Excellence in Wood and Biomaterials Center for Scientific and Technological Instruments and Network Partners Organize skill development activities “Innovation and Technology of Latex Processing Course” for farmers and rubber latex processing entrepreneurs Have knowledge and practical skills related to latex processing to create added value for products and services It was honored by Professor Dr. Sombat Thamrongthanyawong, President of Walailak University. presided over the opening remarks along with Assistant Professor Dr. Anurak Thungthong, Director of Science and Technology Park. Welcome speech and report, with a large number of farmers, rubber latex entrepreneurs from 15 enterprises participating in meeting room 4, 2nd floor, Technology and Innovation Development Building on February 23, 2021.
Professor Dr. Sombat Thamrongthanyawong, President of Walailak University said, “Walailak University Continuously aiming to promote research to meet the needs of the industrial sector in the area. This gives us researchers capable of innovating new innovations, such as the Petrochemical and Polymer Research Unit, which has Assistant Professor Dr. Prachid Samolee, a professor at the School of Engineering and Technology. It is one of the research units that has created many innovations such as student police rubber guns. At present, there are many government agencies that have been bought and used, such as the Royal Thai Armed Forces Headquarters, the Border Patrol Police Headquarters, Provincial Training Center, Region 8, Nakhon Si Thammarat Province And recently also invented a rubber cup to prevent touching the knob. which is an interesting invention to reduce the infection of the Covid-19 virus. It is a testament to the ability of researchers. Walailak University In regards to latex processing technology as well. I strongly believe that Participants develop skills in the course. “Innovation and technology of latex processing” today will gain knowledge and develop skills in the field of latex processing to the fullest.”
Anurak Sangthong, Director of Science and Technology Park said, “Science and Technology Park Walailak University It is an organization that focuses on the economic development of the upper southern region. through driving the use of technology and innovation of the university to be used in the industrial sector Create added value for products and services of entrepreneurs. through various services such as the Industrial Technology Promotion Center science lab food innovation city extension Design Innovation Center research industrial park Entrepreneur Development Center business incubator and the Intellectual Property Center. Today’s activities are to expand and transfer knowledge. about rubber which is the main economic crop of the south But due to the problem of the global economic slowdown causing the demand for rubber to decrease and rubber oversupply As a result, the price of rubber fell. Processing of latex into products Therefore, it is one channel that can add value to rubber. for the rubber latex processing operators have knowledge Appropriate processing skills can produce quality rubber products. to increase knowledge skills expertise for industrial personnel to be in line with the country’s development policy in the future.”
Skill development training activities This “innovation and latex processing technology course” was held during February 22-25, 2021, with honors from Assistant Professor Dr. Prachit Sramope, Assistant Professor Dr. Surerk Kongthong and the team of experts in the processing of products from rubber latex. School of Engineering and Technology Walailak University to be a speaker in transferring knowledge to develop skills in this Another activity to bring academic knowledge to benefit society and industry of the Petrochemical and Polymers Programme.
