In 2015, an eclectic mix of blog posts piqued the interest of Plastics Technology’s readers. Not surprisingly the year’s biggest show, NPE, was prominent among the posts, registering three of the top 10, including items on machines boosted en route to Orlando, NPE2015’s Startup Garage and a rundown of the show’s biggest display—the Milacron booth.


Just as its popularity grows in the marketplace, 3D printing’s prominence on our site has increased, with two of the top 10 posts touching on the burgeoning technology, including a look at big-area additive manufacturing and a carbon fiber 3D printer.


The most popular blog of the year was a detailed break down of the PE stretch film market, part of a longer series of posts on the different market segments for PE films by Plastics Technology’s Executive Editor Jim Callari.
