Composite Materials Engineering (CME) has been awarded the 2014 Supplier Quality Excellence Award by General Motors in Australia.
This is the second consecutive year that CME have received the award and is recognition of CME’s ongoing commitment to providing high quality, lightweight composite components to the automotive industry.
The Quality Excellence awards are determined by Metric Selection Criteria, where Tier 1 suppliers and their performance is measured against a table of 13 key requirements.
CME Managing director Brian Hughes says, “CME’s primary focus has been to deliver weight reduction solutions to the sector through advanced technology. It is good to receive the award from General Motors as a lot of other prospective customers use the automotive industry as a gauge of a company's capabilities. We have been using this expertise to help diversify our business into other key industries for the past 5 years, but have not lost focus on the auto industry, which this award shows”.
Australian organisations Austrak, Laing O’Rourke and the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) have joined forces to develop polymer composite solutions for bridge transoms in a $10 million project titled Polymer Composite Transoms for Rail Bridge Deck Replacement (CompTrans).
Composites One and the Closed Mold Alliance, along with more than 15 industry partners, will demonstrate the latest advancements in closed moulding and advanced processes for building real-life parts for marine, aerospace and other markets during CAMX 2018 in Dallas, Texas, US, on 16-18 October.
With its new ‘Process Live’ format, processing and manufacturing processes will become a visible focus of this year's Composites Europe exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany, on 6-8 November. Mechanical and plant engineering companies will get together in group exhibits to showcase their technologies in live interactions, enabling visitors to experience sub-processes in a larger context.
