Composites UK reports that its members are supporting the new 2018-2021 Safety in Manufacturing Plastics and Composites strategy (SIMPLC).
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.
