An all new magazine, M&MT, is due to launch in November, covering the full range of lightweight materials currently available in the UK, as well as newly developing solutions, it will also show how to machine/process and produce parts faster that are both stronger and lighter.
According to the magazine, regardless of the industry sector you work in, if you can reduce weight you will save costs, M&MT can show you how. M&MT says it will reach a combined audience of 32,000 decision makers/influencers, across the entire lightweight materials supply chain and into the large OEMs, through both printed and digital copies.
Issue 1 will contain features on:
The Manufacturers of the Month section offers an advertorial opportunity, PLUS an in depth show preview of Advanced Engineering UK 2015 held at The NEC in November with 1,000 of the printed copies being distributed at the event.
Coriolis Composites has been selected by the National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR) at Wichita State University (WSU), US, to provide a thermoplastics capable Automated Fibre Placement (AFP) system.
UK company Prodrive Composites has developed a process for manufacturing recyclable composite components that can satisfy future end-of-life requirements without any compromise in the performance of the original parts. The company says the P2T (Primary to Tertiary) process not only simplifies recycling, but endows a composite material with the potential to fulfil three or more useful lifetimes.
Boeing and Thermwood have employed additive manufacturing technology to produce a large, single-piece tool for the 777X programme. The project is demonstrating that additive manufacturing is ready to produce production quality tooling for the aerospace industry.
