Laser Finishing of composites opens up efficiency potentials
The benefits of laser-based technologies include high flexibility and non-contact, wear-free finishing. In addition to this, the introduction of energy precisely tailored to the given application makes it possible to also finish materials sensitive to temperature.
Powerboats, cruise vessels and sailing yachts: maritime applications are a small but steadily growing segment for composites. In North America most powerboats and sailing yachts are built. This is also where the most extensive development efforts are undertaken. Composite applications in boat and shipbuilding are also in focus at COMPOSITES EUROPE.
COMPOSITES EUROPE 2018 - Statement by Event Director Olaf Freier
Which aspects were in focus of COMPOSITES EUOPE 2018? What topics will COMPOSITES EUROPE take with it to the upcoming event? Answers to these questions are given by Event Director Olaf Freier in his interview.
COMPOSITES EUROPE and Foam Expo Europe to be held in parallel in Stuttgart starting in 2019
Foam Expo Europe, trade fair and conference for the supply chain of technical foam production, and COMPOSITES EUROPE, European trade fair and forum for composites, technology and applications, will take place in parallel in Stuttgart from 2019. Together, the two fairs combine the technologies and applications of composite materials with the entire supply chain of foam production.
10 - 12 September 2019, Messe Stuttgart, Germany at the COMPOSITES EUROPE
In the Lightweight Technologies Forum, information is presented on the subject of multi material lightweight construction and hybrid solutions. The development of lightweight material systems will go more on individual material groups and be an optimal configuration of different material components.
