New Innovative Conference Focuses on Developments in Lightweighting Structures with FRP’s

09 October 2012

NetComposites is organising a new technical conference to take place at the NEC Birmingham the day before the Composites Engineering Show, the showcase exhibition for the UK composites industry, on 6th November 2012.

The conference will highlight the trend towards lightweight structures across many industries which therefore pose considerable challenges to the designer. It will look at material and manufacturing developments in fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composites which could offer a solution to this issue, exploiting their high strength-to-weight ratio and excellent durability properties in particular. The event will provide a forum for the exchange of information on this recent trend and follow the process of design through manufacture.

The event is aimed at composite users, material suppliers, manufacturers, environmentalists, designers, engineers, researchers and technicians from industry and academia.

The programme includes speakers from:
e-Xstream Engineering
Epsilon Optics
Kingston University
MSC Software UK Limited
National Composites Centre
NetComposites Limited
SGS Carbide
Surface Generation
University of Newcastle
University of Nottingham

The full programme and registration information can be found on the conference website at
