Mikrosam Host the 2<sup>nd</sup> Bi-Annual Automation in Composites Manufacturing Seminar - ACMS 2014

According to Mikrosam, this was the second ACMS seminar that has united over 50 professors, scientists and other professionals from the industry for composite materials.

It explains, ACMS 2014 combined a theoretical part, where experts from the industry gave presentation on specific topics and had panel discussions regarding the market expectations, innovations and potential development, with a practical part which integrated multiple workshop sessions including demonstrations of filament winding (FW) of a type IV CNG tank, elbow, rings and winding of non-axis symmetrical shape, calibrated prepreg slitting, and automated fiber placement (AFP) of a double curvature mandrel. 

During the seminar, an exclusive workshop session was dedicated to the new automated tape laying (ATL) patent pending head developed by Mikrosam and the newest version of the MikroPlace offline software for programming, design and simulation.
