9:00 am TRAM Aerospace Conference 2016

TRAM (Trends in Advanced Machining, Manufacturing and Materials) is an international aerospace conference and table top exhibition focused on transferring advanced manufacturing technologies to the business leaders, managers and engineers who lead or play a key role in a facility that serves the aerospace sector. Presented by a coalition of academia, media and industry, the conference program offers the most relevant insight from top executives, professors and engineers on the cutting edge of research and development.

TRAM was started in 2009 by the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), part of University of Sheffield, and has since been co-located with the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago in 2012 and 2014. In 2015 the conference returned to the UK, where it was very well received by attendees, exhibitors and sponsors.

In 2016 the event will once again join forces with the IMTS – North America’s largest display and demonstration of global manufacturing technology.

Topics to be Covered

– Novel materials
– Smart machining systems
– Reconfigurable manufacturing systems
– Near Net and net shape primary processing

9:00 am AMRC Forum - Composites Machining

As industries such as aerospace, automotive and renewable energy look towards reducing the structural weight of their components, composite materials are growing in demand.

The growth of carbon-fibre applications has created machining challenges for industry, for example current large scale commercial aircrafts consist of more than 50% composite materials with a typical wing requiring in the region of 5,000 holes and more than 50,000 holes in the entire aircraft.

Composite materials behave very differently to metals. Consequently, new machining technologies have been developed for composites covering areas such as cutting tool
design, workholding, coolant and measurement.

On 21st September 2016, the AMRC Forum will discuss the latest developments in composites machining and look forward to the challenges that lie ahead.

Speakers from:
• BAE Systems
• OSG
• Alicona
• DMG Mori
• Metrology Software Products
• AMRC Composite Centre

Where: The AMRC Knowledge Transfer Centre (KTC), Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, Brunel Way, Catcliffe, S60 5WG.

When: 09:00 to 13:00 on Wednesday 21st September 2016.
