8:30 am First step to composites - not black magic

Composite MachiningFibre reinforced polymer composites (FRP’s) are in growing demand from industries such as aerospace, automotive, marine and renewable energy (principally wind), as they look towards reducing the structural weight of their components, whilst maintaining the highest material and structural performance. NAMTEC alongside the AMRC’s Composite Centre, are hosting an event to encourage companies to envisage how the utilisation of composites might impact and improve their products.

Gathering leading experts in the field, the day will see both multinationals and SMEs discuss their driving force behind viewing composites as opportunities rather than threats. Presentation topics will cover design flexibility, technology transfer, implementation of composites from traditional products, manufacturing lines and machining techniques. In addition, how companies can gain a competitive advantage in the market by implementing this disruptive technology and exploring advanced materials.

The day will close with a tour of the AMRC Composite facility, including advanced curing technologies, tooling for composite machining and automated production systems (fibre placement and filament winding).

Presenters on the day include; Jaguar Land RoverPES PerformanceMcLarenSandvikTinsley Bridge.
