JEC Forums will promote efficiency in design and high volume production at Boston, US on 22-23 September 2015, at the newly enhanced Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC).
According to JEC, as planes and cars use composites extensively, all the key products present in these transportation-based topics take advantage of the many properties of composites materials. Superior strength/weight, durability, tailorable physical properties and corrosion resistance are just a few of the factors that make composites such a compelling materials alternative in both the Aeronautics and the Automotive Industries. JEC explains that the first day of the Forum will focus on Design, Optimisation and Simulation while the second day will underline mass production and cost-reduction of composites in Aeronautics and Automotive. The 2-day forum will also organise networking sessions over the 2 days with table-tops exhibitors and a JEC Leadership Circle dedicated to Simulation.
The Program includes the following:
SABIC is launching its STADECK heavy-duty panel for the building and construction industry. Made from glass fibre reinforced thermoplastic resin, the lightweight panel is said to offer significant advantages across a range of applications where weight saving is important.
On 27-28 June 2018, composites manufacturing business leaders and experts from North America and Europe assembled in Las Vegas, Nevada, US, for the inaugural Global Composites Conference. The new international composites industry event, hosted by American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) and NetComposites, was designed for corporate leaders in the industry with a focus on global business, trends and insights for the global composites market.
3M is adding Scotch-Weld Multi-Material Composite Urethane Adhesives DP6310NS and DP6330NS to its portfolio of structural adhesives. These products are designed for lightweight assemblies in trucks, buses, RVs, speciality vehicles and passenger rail, and other markets like sporting goods and panels.
