Manufacturing Methods of Composites
|Event Date/Time: Sep 08, 2009|
The manufacturing of composite parts is constantly advancing and new technologies are being developed; this one-day seminar will discuss novel methods and the materials developed to take these new methods into account.
Speakers from industry and academia will provide information on the use of the latest methods used within aerospace, and identify future techniques that are being investigated. Emerging technologies in the aerospace composite industry focus on several areas, including high performance materials, design and manufacturing methods. Talks will cover self-healing composites, recycling of composite materials and parts, out of autoclave technologies, 3D weaving, as well as applications on wings. Speakers include representatives from Airbus, Bombardier, BAE Systems, Milled Carbon and the University of Nottingham.
This event will be of practical use to structural engineers and manufacturers in the aerospace and related industries, interested in materials, manufacturing methods and new processes. It will also benefit academics and university departments, by giving the latest industry thinking on composites development and providing a forum to share and discuss information in their research area.
