According to the organisers, the conference will provide a forum for both the academic and industrial delegates. It will be a platform for those interested in composites manufacturing to share ideas and approaches.
There will be five major themes within the conference:
Assembly and Metrology - acknowledging that composite components are assembled into larger and more complex structures
Automation - covering both AFP/ATL and flexible automation approaches
Design for Manufacture in Composites - including related areas such as cost modeling
Factories of the Future - including manufacturing sustainability and waste recovery
Skills and Training issues - including the development of effective supply chains
