"Innovative Thermoplastics Solutions for Automotive", 8th December, 2010, Gurgaon
Design and Engineering of new applications in Exterior, interior, Powertrain and Body Panel segments is important for the development of lightweight solutions and impact energy management for safety. For this reason, Thermoplastic application development has started for Industrial and Automotive Industry. The present focus is on the application technology development using STAMAX Long Glass Fiber Thermoplastic (LGF-PP) as metal replacement solution to give weight out, cost out and integration possibilities. SAE India (Northern Section) in association with Sabic Innovative Plastics organized a seminar titled “Innovative Thermoplastics Solutions for Automotive”, which was held on 8th December’10 at Gurgaon. The seminar covered the diverse applications of Engineering Plastics in the area of automotive interiors, exteriors, & vehicle safety. The seminar also gave insight into environmentally sustainable new materials. Among the keynote speakers were Mr. S.M Kumar, Manager, Automotive Applications, Dr. K.Srinivasan, Senior Scientist. The seminar started with an overview of Lightweight Thermoplastic solutions for exterior body and Advanced Thermoplastics for Interior Applications. The focus was on Environmentally Sustainable materials for Automotive. This was followed by a session on the Structural and Non Structural applications of Long Glass Fibre (LGF-PP). Also, a session on Crash and Energy Management Applications took place due to the need to study the role of thermoplastic energy absorbers for pedestrian safety, vehicle damageability and high speed crashes. The seminar saw participation of over a 100 people from the Auto OEMs & Suppliers including companies like Maruti Suzuki, Lumax, Subros, Minda, Motherson Sumi, etc. “Got to know not only the Life assessment of plastics but also the Thermoplastic energy absorber Technology in pedestrian safety and high speed crashes” was the view of Mr. Nirmal Kumar, Maruti Suzuki India Limited, who was one of the participants of the event.
