METYX Composites will host METYX Fourth Composites Summit on October 22-24, 2014 in Istanbul, Turkey.
The event will take place at Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Istanbul Tuzla. The organisers claim METYX Fourth Composites Summit is the most comprehensive event for high-performance composites in Turkey.
According to METYX Composites, industry leaders from around the world will meet to discuss and present the most innovative approaches to high-tech composites at this three-day event. The format of this year's Summit is a one-day composites conference followed by two days of practical training (RTM school and infusion training). Participants can attend one, two, or all three days.
All parts of the Summit were designed to provide the maximum amount of targeted content, including theory and hands-on practice. The goal is to teach, challenge, and inspire attendees.
METYX states this year's presenters represent world renowned-companies and institutions: Arkema (France), Composite Integration (UK), eCon Engineering Kft. (Hungary), METYX Composites (Turkey), Neo Yachts (Italy), Onuk-BG (Turkey), Turkish Aerospace Industries (Turkey), and Walder Mader AG (Switzerland).
METYX Composites says the conference topics will include developments in infusion technology,RTM process and tooling strategies and new materials and processes in thermoplastic composites.

Solvay has signed a ten-year agreement for the supply of composites and adhesives to be used across Bell's military and commercial rotorcraft programmes, including the Bell 429, 407, 505, 525, V-22, and UH-1.
SGL Carbon and Fraunhofer IGCV have officially opened the Fibre Placement Centre (FPC) at SGL's site in Meitingen, Germany. Compositence, BA Composites and the Chair for Carbon Composites at the Technical University of Munich have also joined the alliance, and Coriolis Group and Cevotec are planning to come on board as partners.
With the aim developing a broader platform for additive manufacturing (AM) technologies, the University of Exeter, UK, and Victrex, have formed a strategic partnership to introduce next-generation polyaryletherketone (PAEK) polymers and composites while improving the performance of the underlying AM processes.
