Second international convention for filament winding technology
17 - 19 October 2001 - Brussels, Belgium
After the great success of the first filament winding convention in 1998 with over 120 visitors from 25 countries world-wide Material organises this event for the second time. Filament Winding 2001 features 22 speakers from 11 countries. The presentations will focus on process technology and new developments in filament winding machinery and software. The convention program includes a panel discussion with all major winding machinery manufacturers. An extended table top exhibition will be on display. Suppliers of raw materials, machinery, software, engineering services and other equipment for filament winding technology will present their products.
One main objective of the convention is to bring together filament winding engineers. There will be enough time between the presentations for these important informal talks and the direct exchange of know-how and experience.
