Grand Prize, Sustaining Life: Motor oil dispenser with flexible spout & hinged lid
Grand Prize, Sustaining Life: Motor oil dispenser with flexible spout & hinged lid

During ANTEC 2018 @NPE2018 plastics technical conference in Orlando, FL, SPE (Society of Plastics Engineers) honored plastic products that meet the ultimate test of value by making lives better in some way.

The annual ANTEC is SPE’s largest event and the world’s important plastics technical conference. A panel of judges selected the winners of the 5th annual Plastics for Life Global Parts Competition from among a wide range of parts that had already won in competitions at previous SPE events during the past year.

In addition, a People’s Choice award was presented to the part that received the greatest number of votes from ANTEC attendees.

The award categories and winners

Grand Prize, Sustaining Life: Motor oil dispenser with flexible spout & hinged lid

The production of this part has allowed Silgan to stay relevant even as industries aim to reduce plastic consumption. Various design traits, such as the spout, handles and mouth allow for ergonomic use and can reduce product spillage.

People’s Choice & Protecting Life: 2017 Chevrolet Traverse engine clevis bracket

People’s Choice & Protecting Life: 2017 Chevrolet Traverse engine clevis bracket

This engine clevis bracket is the first composite mount designed for a 6-cylinder engine, and passing peak loads of 25 Kilo-newtons of force. The injection molded part replaces metallic solutions used previously resulting in a 45% weight save. NVH was also improved (reduction in cabin noise) due to the damping characteristics of the polyamide compared to aluminum.

Corrosion resistance is improved and the part can be recycled at end of life. Seven clevis brackets were developed for different powertrain combinations and there are no warranty claims after 1.5 years of production.

Competition winner: SPE Automotive Division Innovation Awards Gala, Chassis/Hardware Category

Improving Life: OmniPod dispenser

Improving Life: OmniPod dispenser750ml OmniPod liquid soap/sanitizer dispensing unit is produced on a six-cavity mold run on a Nissei ASB 650 NHll machine. The new OmniPod hand hygiene dispensing system is not only new in the commercial category, but uniquely different from competitor’s dispensing systems for its fewer components and less complexity. This design turns the traditional hygiene dispensing systems “inside out”.

It can also be replaced easily with 100% recyclable refill bottle. In addition, the dispenser has lower cost of assembly.
