Machining and kit cutting specialist MSA Manufacturing will exhibit at Advanced Engineering 2017.
MSA Manufacturing was established in 1969, providing kitting tool chests to the defence and aerospace industries. The company then moved into the marine industry to begin kitting foam core and reinforcement parts. MSA’s kitting service, which includes flattening surfaces, managing the material supply and organising the kit as well as cutting, provides customers with reduced manufacturing and lead times, improved productivity, lower waste/disposal and administration costs and consistent build quality.
Today the company provides additional services including prepreg and dry reinforcement cutting, digital engineering, 3D scanning, reverse engineering, reinforcement 2D preforming and machining of different materials including e-plate, c-plate and ballistics plate. MSA is particularly active in the marine, automotive, renewables and aerospace industries.
“We are very much looking forward to returning to the NEC for the Advanced Engineering show," says MSA CEO Max Osmond. "Our capability in machining and cutting many different types of materials does mean we can offer clients a unique and full service and we look forward to the opportunity to meet potential new clients and to catch up with industry colleagues.”
MSA will exhibit on Stand L163 at Advanced Engineering 2017 on 1-2 November in Birmingham, UK.

The Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI) has announced the Phase I completion of a project led by DuPont, partnering with Fibrtec and Purdue University, focused on the creation of a new carbon fibre composite manufacturing process that exhibits improved fabric formability characteristics compared to traditional woven materials.
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.
