Experts discuss lightweight design innovations at the international Conference of the Association of German Engineers (VDI) “Plastics in Automotive Engineering” on March 18 and 19, 2015
Lippstadt, February 2015 – Plastics play an important role when it comes to fuel-efficient and environmentally-friendly vehicles. On March 18 and 19, 2015, more than 1,200 experts will gather at the Conference of the Association of German Engineers (VDI) “Plastics in Automotive Engineering” in Mannheim for an exchange of ideas. HBPO will present its product “Active Grille Shutter” at the conference. The Active Grille Shutter has been an integral part of the HBPO product palette since 2011. The feature can be implemented into the front-end module. With stricter regulations in European lawmaking, CO2 emissions will have to be reduced until 2021. The Active Grille Shutter is one of the innovations that will contribute to lower emissions. It will smooth out the vehicle front and will, therefore, reduce the resistance of the car. Because of the vehicle’s improved aerodynamics, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions will be lowered. See us at the VDI-Conference. For more information, visit vdi.de/gme.
