Mobility Transformed by Plastics
With plastics playing a growing role in enhancing safety, efficiency, and reliability across the entire transportation sector, NPE® is the industry’s forum to build upon those innovations. As consumer demand and government policy drive ever-more affordable and fuel-efficient transportation options, NPE will be the place to discover the latest solutions from pioneering manufacturers, processors, and automotive suppliers.
- Reinforced plastics and other lightweight composite materials and manufacturing techniques
- Advanced manufacturing, including 3D and 4D printing
- Automotive suppliers from the entire global supply chain
NPE2018 demonstrated how manufacturers continue to replace traditional components with plastic-based alternatives, expanding the boundaries of what is possible in the automotive products that consumers depend on in their daily lives—from cars and buses to seatbelts and airbags. While about 1/3 of a vehicle’s roughly 30,000 parts are made of plastic, you can expect that number to grow as NPE’s exhibitors refine and improve existing components, and new materials, processes, and applications are created to enhance transportation machinery and technology.
