Highlights from Dieffenbacher at Composites Europe 2006, which will be held in Essen from 20-22 September 2006, are the new, energy saving Compress Plus press generation that reflect the rapid developments made to Dieffenbacher’s LFT-D direct processing system.
In addition, they will be showing automated SMC processing for manufacturing light-weight components for structural and semi-structural applications. Interesting innovations have also been added to the manufacturer’s process monitoring and production data acquisition system. An expanded service concept, which includes 24-hour online support, completes the range of services provided by Dieffenbacher.
As in the past years, Dieffenbacher will also be represented at the 9th International AVK Conference, which will be taking place in Essen for the first time in connection with Composites Europe 2006. In the morning of the first day of the fair, Mr. Heinrich Ernst will hold a presentation about “Production of the SMC trunk lid for the VW Cabriolet EOS and the production of thermosetting fiber composites parts by the SMC direct process”.
INEOS Styrolution announces that it is planning to set up a new production site for its successful composite StyLight.
Williams Advanced Engineering is working with the UK’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) and Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) to develop innovative battlefield shelter protection for troops using Formula One-derived technology and processes created in-house at Williams to create composite 3D structures that can be deployed in theatre.
On 11 April 2019, the 9 Partner Institutes of the AZL opened the doors of their machinery halls and research labs to provide an extensive and on-site insight into the research and development capacities in the field of lightweight production and composites at the RWTH Aachen Campus.
