Australian organisations Austrak, Laing O’Rourke and the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) have joined forces to develop polymer composite solutions for bridge transoms in a $10 million project titled Polymer Composite Transoms for Rail Bridge Deck Replacement (CompTrans).
Composites One and the Closed Mold Alliance, along with more than 15 industry partners, will demonstrate the latest advancements in closed moulding and advanced processes for building real-life parts for marine, aerospace and other markets during CAMX 2018 in Dallas, Texas, US, on 16-18 October.
With its new ‘Process Live’ format, processing and manufacturing processes will become a visible focus of this year's Composites Europe exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany, on 6-8 November. Mechanical and plant engineering companies will get together in group exhibits to showcase their technologies in live interactions, enabling visitors to experience sub-processes in a larger context.
