IKV will present its latest composites research

Industry meets Science

In 2018, IKV attended again COMPOSITES EUROPE with partners from RWTH Aachen University to present some of the latest developments in process technology, design, quality assurance and repair in the field of composites. The Institute's stand was located on the "Industry Meets Science" area.

The following institutes participated in the project at the CE show: the AZL (Aachen Centre for Integrative Lightweight Design), the ITA (Institute of Textile Technology), the ika (Institute of Automotive Engineering), the ISF (Welding and Joining Institute), the SLA (Institute of Structural Mechanics and Lightweight Design), the IPT (Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology), and the WZL (Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering) of RWTH Aachen University.

Demonstration parts were shown, and guided tours to selected highlights were provided for the visitors. In addition, as part of a lecture session at the COMPOSITES Forum, the institutes discussed current developments under the motto "RWTH Aachen Research for Cost Efficient Thermoplastic Composite Solutions".
