Lightweight Technologies Forum goes into second round

Composites Europe, the European Trade Fair and Forum for Composites, Technology and Applications, will take place in Stuttgart from 19-21 September 2017. © Composites Europe The Lightweight Technologies Forum at Composites Europe 2017 will for the second time cover issues and questions of user industries concerning modern multi-material systems, from 19-212 September in Stuttgart, Germany. Because of its successful premiere in 2016, the second edition of the forum in Stuttgart will be expanded, organisers report.

Reducing energy and material consumption is essential for long-term economic success in virtually all industrial sectors. Lightweight construction offers a sustainable solution for that, along with great growth potential.

The lightweight construction forum tackles the issue from this perspective. Up to 20 exhibitors, more than 30 presentations and several panel discussions make up the content of the Lightweight Technologies Forum 2017, with the main focus being on multi-material lightweight construction.

Cross-material interface

Combining an exhibition and a presentation forum, the event thus serves as the cross-material interface between metal and fibre-reinforced composite technologies in structural components. In several application-focussed modules, experts will present their real-world experiences with issues revolving around material composites in the automotive, aerospace and architecture segments.

Also on the agenda will be cross-industry thematic blocks emphasising manufacturing and production technologies such as the joining and combining of different materials.

ICC

Kicking off Composites Europe 2017 on 18 and 19 September 2017 will be the 3rd International Composites Congress (ICC) hosted by the trade association Composites Germany in Stuttgart.

Current trends, new applications and technologies, and a comprehensive overview of market developments in Europe and worldwide will be the centre of attention at the 3rd ICC. This year’s partner country, South Korea, will be represented with several exclusive speakers.

Composites Europe

Composites Europe, the European Trade Fair and Forum for Composites, Technology and Applications, will take place in Stuttgart from 19-21 September 2017. The trade fair will showcase the full range of fibre-reinforced plastics, from raw materials to processing methods to lightweight construction innovations in automotive engineering, aerospace, boatbuilding, wind energy and construction.

Composites Europe is organised by trade fair organiser Reed Exhibitions in cooperation with the European industry association EuCIA and the trade association Composites Germany, a coalition whose members include the industry associations and clusters AVK, CCeV, CFK-Valley Stade and the VDMA Working Group Hybrid Lightweight Technologies.
