The event on thermoplastic composites to take place on 3rd October 2019 in London

August 08, 2019

The event to be taken place in London on October 3rd will showcase the very latest technological developments and new approaches in the field of thermoplastic composites. The one-day seminar will look at topics including over-molding, hybrid molding, and perforated composites.

Alex Hickson, Aerospace Technology Institute; Chris Hare, Coventive Composites; Peter Wilson, WMG; Hannah Tew, AMRC; Sean Cooper, National Composites Centre; Chris Worral, TWI Limited; Louis Barnes, Wilde Analysis; and Jonathan Powell, Spirit AeroSystems (Europe) Ltd will be the speakers of the event.

Some of the topics to be discussed in the event are:

  • ATI Roadmap/ Strategy on the Future for thermoplastic composites in Aerospace,
  • A new approach to hybrid molding,
  • Mechanical and damping performance of hybrid natural fiber, recycled and virgin carbon fiber laminates,
  • Composites large scale projects,
  • Recent developments in thermoplastic composite over-moulding,
  • Perforated composites: manufacturing, modelling, and industrial applications,
  • Manufacturing process simulation for thermoplastic composites, and
  • Over-moulding potential for commercial structures.

The Communications Manager at Composites UK, Claire Whysall, said: “We’re excited to be working with the BPF again as this event is always well received and last year even sold out. We’ve never focussed on aerospace applications before but from the response to our call for abstracts it was apparent that aerospace is the sector where thermoplastic composites are a hot topic.”

Paul Baxter, the BPF Senior Commercial Events and Projects Executive also added: “We are delighted to be able to include this event in our 2019 schedule in partnership with Composites UK. The programme for the day provides a great balance between technical sessions and broader overviews of the sector and we are sure the programme will appeal to the industry. We are confident that once again this event will be a great success.”

The event Thermoplastic Composites 2019 is aimed at senior and middle managers from Thermoplastic Composites companies from all sectors and all parts of the UK. Registration for this even is now open to all.
