Intertek Exhibiting at VDI 2018, International Plastics in Automotive Engineering Conference

Meet Intertek experts at the VDI Kunststoffe im Automobilbau congress, the international plastics in automotive engineering (PIAE) conference, booth 86, March 14 - 15, 2018 in Mannheim, Germany

Plastics today, bring many benefits to lightweight technical design in automotive body construction and sophisticated mounted parts and components. The VDI event will focus on developing innovative solutions for automotive plastics, in particular, the themes of interior, exterior components, materials/technologies, engine components and, of course, lightweight design. Whilst automotive plastics can be tailored to the requirements of the design and performance specifications it is, however, important to gain a full understanding of the materials properties and its performance in the finished application. 

During the VDI congress, our automotive plastics and composites experts will be present to discuss material characterization for automotive applications and testbeds for plastics processing. Our thought leaders will be available for meetings to establish how our capabilities for automotive plastic testing, functionality testing, perceptivity testing, weathering testing and physical testing can accelerate your product development and help you to meet your automotive testing requirements. Our experts on automotive materials failure investigations will be on hand to discuss how our capabilities could help you to resolve and prevent failures through identifying root causes of degradation, malfunction, damage, ageing, misuse, stress and processing issues. Our automotive polymers processing engineers can provide updates on our injection moulding, extrusion and compounding facilities help to troubleshoot processing issues, select materials and support product innovation.

Contact us now to schedule a meeting during the event.

About VDI, the International Plastics in Automotive Engineering Conference: 

For more than 41 years, the international VDI Plastics in Automotive Engineering conference in Mannheim has been throwing light on the traditional themes areas of interior, exterior, simulation, materials/technologies, engine/technology and, of course, the key issue of lightweight design. Nowadays even recent topics, such as Industry 4.0 and 3D printing, or hot topics, such as sustainability and recycling, are also moving further into the focus of discussion..
