Registrations for the Opportunities for FRP Materials in Mass Transport Applications one-day event are now open; set to offer a unique meeting of minds, discussing key innovations in using FRP’s in transport applications.
NetComposites, the event’s organiser, explains that in an industry where light weighting is crucial, FRP (Fibre-Reinforced Polymer) composites can offer many advantages over more traditional materials. It says “Opportunities for Fibre-Reinforced Polymer Composites in Mass Transport Applications” will explore the current innovations within FRP materials, specifically within the transport sector, through a range of speaker presentations.
The event will bring together delegates from different areas of the transport industry, from designers to manufacturers, to exchange ideas and information on the material’s successes and challenges. Key topics which will be covered during the conference include light weighting, component design, crashworthiness and examples of good practice.
Sue Keighley, Events and Communications Specialist at NetComposites, commented “We’re delighted to be able to present such a wide variety of topics at this event. Delegates will also be given a unique and invaluable networking opportunity, as this event will provide an exchange of ideas from members throughout many disciplines within the transport industry.”

Composites are considered hard to join and researchers have predominantly focused on mechanical joining technologies including crimping, gluing, riveting or screwing. The Composites Europe exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany, on 6-8 November will show the advantages and drawbacks of each of these processes.
The Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) and the Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) at RWTH Aachen University are commencing a study into the use of thermoplastic tapes in injection moulded parts. Companies interested in joining the study are invited to a kick-off event during Fakuma 2018 in Friedrichshafen, Germany, on 18 October.
ZSK will hold its bi-annual technology showcase on 21-22 September 2018 at its Krefeld, Germany, headquarters. The Embroidery Technology Show assembles more than 25 exhibitors from around the world to discuss emerging trends in the embroidery manufacturing industry and demonstrate the latest products produced using techniques such as tailored fibre placement (TFP) or smart textiles.
