Annual Seminar and SME Table Top Exhibition, 26 February 2015
The SAMPE UK & Ireland Chapter Annual Seminar & SME Table Top Exhibition - Challenges for High Volume Composites Manufacturing, was held on the 26th February 2015, at the International Digital Laboratory, Warwick University and was sponsored by WMG and Cytec Industrial Materials
The motivation of the seminar was to address the intense needs to achieve environmental and economic targets for all industry sectors. The benefits of lightweight composite structures contribute to these targets, and are being brought to the marketplace. Investment is being focused on the high volume manufacture of high performance parts for the aerospace, automotive and energy generation sectors. Establishment of new processes and materials into a secure supply chain is essential.
The Final programme included presentations from key industry players as Penso, Coriolis Composites, The University of Nottingham, Bentley, Cytec, Kraus Maffei and AZL.
The Seminar and the associated exhibition were both fully booked and for the list of exhibitors follow this link. The available seminar presentations are given below. They will be password protected until 30 June, 2015. Delegates will be emailed with password details.
