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.
The Latin American Composite Materials Association (ALMACO) is organising the event Pultrusion – Innovations, Solutions and Trends at the Petrobras Research Center (CENPES) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on 23 August.
Project 12 has collaborated with Total Composite Solutions (TCS), the UK partner of Microtex, on automotive OEM projects for bespoke carbon parts.
On 27-28 June 2018, composites manufacturing business leaders and experts from North America and Europe assembled in Las Vegas, Nevada, US, for the inaugural Global Composites Conference. The new international composites industry event, hosted by American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) and NetComposites, was designed for corporate leaders in the industry with a focus on global business, trends and insights for the global composites market.
