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.
Composites One and the Closed Mold Alliance, along with Magnum Venus Products and IACMI–The Composites Institute, are organising Advances in Wind Energy, a two-day workshop exploring advanced materials, manufacturing processes and repair techniques for wind energy applications.
