The Composites Innovation 2016 conference programme has been released featuring speakers from Altair, Plataine, Coriolis, Exel Composites, Flow International, Mafic and Sandvik.
This year’s conference will explore developments related to new and advanced manufacturing processes for products made of composite materials, with particular focus on innovation related to the automation of processes for light-weighting and increased composites production rates. Sessions will include:
Process Simulation & Planning
Automated Lay-up of Composites
Resin Transfer Moulding and Infusion
An added extra of the event is a tour of the Composites Centre of conference sponsors, Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), highlighting its technology streams:
Novel Materials and Processes
Delegate and exhibitor registration is open for the conference, which will take place on 22-23 June 2016 at the Mercure St Paul’s Hotel, Sheffield, UK.

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.
ZSK will hold its bi-annual technology showcase on 21-22 September 2018 at its Krefeld, Germany, headquarters. The Embroidery Technology Show assembles more than 25 exhibitors from around the world to discuss emerging trends in the embroidery manufacturing industry and demonstrate the latest products produced using techniques such as tailored fibre placement (TFP) or smart textiles.
