NetComposites will be running one of its Live Online Training modules, ‘Introduction to Composites’ during the Advanced Engineering Show 2015 taking place on 4 – 5th November at The NEC, Birmingham, UK.
This module will be available to all show attendees, free of charge, in Forum 2 at 11:00 on both days. It provides a general introduction to composite materials and assumes no prior knowledge, covering the basics of what a composite material is, how composite materials work, and their advantages and disadvantages compared to metals.
This module is suitable for both commercial and technical staff.
The full programme is as follows:
Composite Materials – An Overview
Pros and cons.
Constituents of a Composite
How a Composite Works
Stiffness and strength.
The roles of the constituents.
The directionality of composites.
Live Question and Answer Session
Registration for the forum is not necessary.
During the show, NetComposites will also be offering its initial advice and signposting service, "Ask the Expert", for the fourth year running. Attendees are invited to visit the NetComposites team during the show at its stand, E131, to ask any questions they have.

Composites UK reports that its members are supporting the new 2018-2021 Safety in Manufacturing Plastics and Composites strategy (SIMPLC).
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.
