Selective Tape-Laying for Cost-Effective Manufacturing of Optimised Multi-Material Components

Composites Innovation 2016

22nd Jun 2016, Sheffield, UK

NetComposites presents COMPOSITES INNOVATION 2016, an international conference taking place on 22-23rd June 2016 at the Mercure Sheffield St Paul’s Hotel, UK.

This conference will explore developments related to new and advanced manufacturing processes for products made of composite materials, with particular focus on innovation related to the automation of processes for light-weighting and increased composites production rates, including:

  • Automated fibre reinforced thermoplastic taped placement
  • Advanced joining technology for hybrid structures
  • Next generation of thermoset composite manufacturing and post-processing
  • Rapid manufacturing using new environmental friendly processes for Resin Transfer Moulding

A tour of the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), Sheffield will also be available to delegates.
