Coventive Composites will be making its debut at Advanced Engineering 2017, where it will highlight several recent material developments together with its consultancy and training services.
Coventive Composites was launched on 1 October 2017 when NetComposites Ltd separated its technical services from its media business. The company will be showcasing a number of its recently-developed materials, including long natural fibre reinforced thermoplastic pellets for lightweight injection mouldings, carbon fibre reinforced thermoplastic tapes for the localised reinforcement of structures, and lightweight ballistic protection materials for personal and vehicle body armour.
Also in attendance will be a number of Coventive Composites’ consultants who will be happy to discuss their business support services encompassing materials and process development, design and structural analysis, market intelligence and training. They will also be running their introductory 'What is a Composite Material?' training module free of charge at 10.00 am on 2 November as part of the Show’s Open Forum programme.
Coventive Composites will exhibit on Stand M120 at Advanced Engineering 2017 on 1-2 November in Birmingham, UK.

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.
