The EPSRC Future Composites Manufacturing Research Hub has formed a strategic partnership with ICMAC 2018: the International Conference on Manufacturing of Advanced Composites.
ICMAC will be held in Nottingham, UK, on 11-12 July 2018. Organised by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, on behalf of the British Composites Society, ICMAC is now in its 11th edition.
The Hub is supporting the event, which promises to provide a forum where all those interested in composites manufacturing from the academic and industrial worlds can meet to interact and discuss their common interests.
On 10 July, The Hub will host a one-day conference and table top exhibition where partners will be invited to highlight progress to date and showcase any project outputs. This free-to-attend event will be an opportunity for those across the composites manufacturing supply chain to learn about the latest research and developments in this field.
The EPSRC Future Composites Manufacturing Research Hub, launched in January 2017, is a £10.3 million investment to expand the UK's research effort towards delivering a step change in the production of polymer matrix composites, whilst training the next generation of composite engineers.
More than 1,800 visitors attended the KraussMaffei Competence Forum in Munich, Germany, on 6-7 June to celebrate the company’s 180th anniversary under the theme ‘Technology Pioneers – from Tradition to Innovation.’
Technical Fibre Products (TFP) will exhibit nonwovens for use in surface finishing, imparting EMI shielding or fire protection, and other transport applications, at the JEC Conference on The Future of Composites in Transportation, taking place in Chicago, US, on 27-28 June.
