CLEVELAND – PolyOne is gearing up with a multi-faceted presence at NPE 2015 next week, including a customer innovation center and NPE3D Printing sponsorship and exhibit. In addition, five exceptional new technologies will be unveiled at NPE, widely recognized as the premier global showcase for the plastics industry.
“We’re excited to talk with customers at NPE about the ways in which our specialty formulations, technical and design services, and innovative polymer science can be used to energize their product development process and business objectives,” said Cathy Dodd, vice president, Marketing, at PolyOne.
PolyOne’s customer innovation center (Room S230 BC) will highlight advanced polymer formulations that help brand owners and manufacturers grow and evolve while also enabling their customers to get more done and enjoy life more. As a co-sponsor and exhibitor at NPE3D Printing Premier (Booth S35014), PolyOne will display its progress in developing materials for 3D printing under the Ohio Third Frontier initiative, as well as examples of 3D printed prototypes and tooling.
“We are working to find ways in which 3D printing can take our customers to a new level of innovation. Together with our design resources, we are exploring this technology to help customers evaluate multiple iterations faster and optimize their manufacturing process as well as their product’s performance and aesthetics,” Dodd explained.
New technologies that will launch at NPE 2015 include:
IQ Design Labs and InVisiOSM Color and Design Services will be featured at NPE as well. Combining design and market insights with specialty colorants and polymers, these services inspire creativity and leverage design, materials and color development expertise at the beginning of product development projects to reduce risk, strengthen brand equity and increase speed to market.
Additionally, a number of PolyOne experts will be speaking at the following conference events during NPE:
