Educational opportunities. Overviews of manufacturing and processing (M&P) technologies. Most recent technological advances. Critical materials support areas. These are all covered by the six tutorials selected by the SAMPE Organizing Committee for presentation at the International SAMPE Technical Conference in Baltimore, MD, November 4-7, 2002.
Tutorials have always been a strong focus of SAMPE in providing the most up-to-date and concentrated package of technology information to its conference attendees. Always popular, and a big draw to professionals, students and novices to the material and process engineering community, the six tutorials offer a broad opportunity for increasing education on critical topics.
The six tutorial topics, covering both “basic” and “advanced” technology subjects across the materials and process engineering industry are shown below:
Composite Materials: Introduction & Overview
Design and Analysis of Composites
Resin Infusion Processes: RTM, VARTM, SCRIMP,
RFI and VIP Technology
Manufacturing Aerospace Composite Sandwich
Printed Circuit Boards: The Electronics Composite Structures
Alvant has been appointed to work on a two-year, £28 million project titled Large Landing Gear of the Future, which aims to deliver a 30% weight reduction and assist the aerospace industry’s drive to reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
Hexadrone’s 3D printed Tundra prototype, manufactured by CRP Technology via laser sintering (LS) technology using Windform SP and Windform XT 2.0 carbon composite materials, has won the Red Dot Award 2018 in the drone category.
UK company Norco Composites has invested in a larger spray booth and a new cutting and kitting machine to enable the company to increase productivity in line with growing demand from its marine customers.
