JEC Forums to Discuss Efficiency In Design & High Volume Production

22 September 2015

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:

  • Design optimisation: the end of the black metal approach - this session will delve into the optimisation of this first and crucial step in concept development. With speakers from CETIM, Chomarat, Composites Agency, Dassault Systèmes, GSEa Design, Stanford University.
  • Simulation: combining speed and accuracy - with speakers from CompoSIDE, GE Global Research Center, Stanford University.
  • How can you production ramp-up goals be met in the aeronautics industry? - this session will delve into all the questions and possible solutions the industry is working on. With speakers from Altair Engineering, e-Xstream, MIT, Surface Generation.
  • Cost-competitive solutions for mass production in the automotive industry - this session covers how the industry is planning on overcoming these obstacles. With speakers from CETIM, Coriolis Composites, Dieffenbacher North America, IACMI, SGL Group, TUM.
