Brian O’Rourke, Chief Composites Engineer at Williams Grand Prix Engineering, has been confirmed as a panel member for Multicomp 2017, taking place on 14th and 15th June, 2017 in Nottingham, UK.
The conference is set to bring together researchers, designers, manufacturers and end-users to showcase the latest developments in hybrid composite solutions within high value sectors such as automotive, aerospace, rail and energy.
A panel session will take place on the first day of the conference where delegates will be able to address the panel on subjects such as the opportunities, challenges and trends of employing and joining multimaterials for lightweight structures.
Gemma Smith, NetComposites Marketing and Communications Manager, explains, “We’re really looking forward to this event and are pleased to announce Brian as a member of the panel. Brian has been with Williams since 1982 where he has gained experience in the design, analysis and manufacturing of composite materials. I am sure his knowledge and experience will add to an already fantastic programme”

The Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI) has announced the Phase I completion of a project led by DuPont, partnering with Fibrtec and Purdue University, focused on the creation of a new carbon fibre composite manufacturing process that exhibits improved fabric formability characteristics compared to traditional woven materials.
CGTech will showcase its expanded range of software applications for the aerospace industry at the Farnborough International Airshow on 16-20 July 2018.
Powertrains, be they conventional, hybrid or fully electric, will need to be light in weight if carmakers are to meet the stringent regulations on carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) to come into force in 2025 – and composites will be key to making this happen. This was the message highlighted at the Lightweight Composite Solutions Conference organised by Vyncolit and Sumitomo Bakelite Co Ltd and held in Gent, Belgium.
