Following on from technical collaboration and development between Sigmatex, an automotive OEM and an Automotive Tier 1 supplier, Sigmatex have secured the first in a number of targeting contracts.
Simon Green, Technical Sales Engineer of Sigmatex commented, “through the dedication and innovation of the Sigmatex technical team working in partnership with the OEM and Tier 1 supplier, we have again managed to develop a cutting edge composite solution that will help our partners to continue to push the use of composites in the Automotive market.”
The company state that this represents one of a number of opportunities that will see their organisation grow in 2013.
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.
