AREVO Acknowledged for ‘Outstanding Technical Paper’, SAMPE 2019

AREVO announces that a technical paper focusing on continuous fibre thermoplastic composites was awarded second place as an ‘Outstanding Technical Paper’ at the SAMPE 2019 Conference and Exhibition.

The paper, ‘Reliable Optimised Structures with High Performance Continuous Fibre Thermoplastic Composites from Additive Manufacturing’, was authored by senior members of AREVO’s engineering team:  Dr. Danning Zhang, Dr. Natalie Rudolph, and Dr. Peter Woytowitz. The paper describes a new direct energy deposition (DED) process that improves the consolidation quality and mechanical performance of structural materials reinforced with continuous carbon fibre – and why this achievement is critical to the advancement of additive manufacturing (AM), also referred to as ‘3D printing’.

More than 250 abstracts and technical papers were submitted for SAMPE 2019 and three were selected as outstanding by the SAMPE Technical Committee, comprised of leading figures from a broad cross section of both industry and academia, and the SAMPE Technical Director.

“Choosing the Outstanding Technical Papers for a SAMPE conference is a challenge, as well as an honour,” said Scott Beckwith, PhD, FSAMPE, SAMPE Global Technical Director. “The down-selection process starts with 25 papers selected initially by the conference Session Chairs. The top three represent 1 – 2 percent of the total submitted. AREVO had several unique discoveries in their technical paper and we look forward to their presentation at SAMPE 2019.”

A special issue of SAMPE’s Journal of Advanced Materials containing these Outstanding Technical Papers will be published after the SAMPE conference and made available free to SAMPE members.

“I would like to congratulate Dr. Danning Zhang, Dr. Natalie Rudolph, and Dr. Peter Woytowitz for their leadership and this recognition from one of the leading organisations in the composites industry,” said Hemant Bheda, CEO and Co-Founder of AREVO. “This award reflects the top notch team we have here at AREVO, which includes 12 PhDs in computer science, materials science, and robotics. Their work is leading important advances in composite materials and additive manufacturing.”
