The European Pultrusion Technology Association (EPTA) has published an in-depth report on its 2018 conference, which took place in Vienna on 1-2 March.
The 12-page document, World Pultrusion Conference 2018: Attractive Long-Term Prospects for Pultruded Composites, is available to download from the EPTA website.
Global trends such as sustainability continue to drive the adoption of strong, lightweight and durable composite materials in numerous industries including construction, transportation, consumer goods, and the electrical and chemical sectors. Pultrusion, one of the few continuous processes for manufacture of composite parts, enables the cost effective, high volume production of structural profiles and the market for pultruded composites has been experiencing steady growth. The conference report addresses growth drivers for the pultrusion industry, promising application areas for pultruded composites, advances in materials designed to improve performance and productivity, research initiatives, and progress in standardisation in the US and Europe.
IMM CarraraFiere, creator and organiser of Seatec, the exhibition dedicated to technology, components, design and subcontracting for the yachting industry, has entered into a wide range of collaborations with the main associations and trade organisations of the respective sectors to increase the relationships between customers and suppliers, and cultural institutions and industry.
At the 2019 JEC Composites show, 12-14 March 2019 at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre, CGTech will demonstrate how advanced programming strategies and simulation can lead to better composite parts.
Composite Integration are excited to announce it has appointed TrioBotics Automation Solutions as their official distributor in India with immediate effect.
