Hans-Peter Heim studied engineering and business administration at the University of Paderborn in Germany. He completed his diploma thesis in 1996 at an automotive supplier company in Italy. Following this, he carried out different projects on quality assurance and quality improvement in plastics processing at this same company. Since 1997 he has worked in the field injection molding, quality improvement and quality assurance at the KTP Institute of Plastics Engineering in Paderborn. He completed his Ph.D. thesis on gas-assisted injection molding in March 2001. H.-P. Heim has been chief engineer at the KTP from 1999 until 2007. Since 2008 he is Professor for plastics technology at the University of Kassel and head of the plastics innovation centre in Kassel.
