TRANSPORTATION EQUIPMENT MANUFACTURING

The transportation equipment manufacturing industry includes products utilized to create and facilitate the transportation of goods and services. Applications include mechanical applications, such as conveyor belt rollers, bushings and plates, graphical applications such as safety signage, and see-through applications such as machinery guards.

Advantages of plastics

The advantages of plastics in the Transportation Equipment Manufacturing industries are numerous. Plastics are much lighter than metal, which equate into better fuel economy and cheaper to manufacture parts. Additionally, the lighter weight aids in safer material handling. Plastics can be designed to be impact and dent resistant, and modified for improved strength. Corrosion resistance, color and texture flexibility, the economical components and aesthetics are other advantages of plastics.

Materials Utilized Within Industry

Materials used in transportation equipment and manufacturing are often lightweight, high temperature and impact resistant, and include materials such as Polycarbonate, ABS and Kydex.
