After several JEC Forums editions focusing on advances in design and simulation of composite materials in various industries, for the first time JEC Forums becomes an event entirely dedicated to composites in the Automotive industry. Hosted in Knoxville, home to the University of Tennessee and one of IACMI’s lead institutions, the event will bring new developments in automotive manufacturing and materials.
The Automotive industry remains by far the largest market for composite materials in the US, rendering it a key player when it comes to innovation and advancements in materials and manufacturing processes. The main challenges: raw material cost reduction, light-weighting, and achieving mass production, are direct consequences of environmental requirements becoming more rigorous as concern about carbon emissions grows.
