North American Pultrusion Conference announces keynote speaker

The programme will feature sessions on pultrusion technology in existing markets, such as marine, automotive, aerospace, and infrastructure. © EPTAAfter a successful sold-out inaugural conference in 2017, the North American Pultrusion Conference will return after a two-year break. Nearly 200 composites manufacturing industry professionals will assemble in Rosemont, IL, from April 8-10, for the event, produced by the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) and the European Pultrusion Technology Association (EPTA). The associations join forces again to focus on broader application and expansion of pultrusion technology in the composites manufacturing industry.

“While pultrusion is providing a wide variety of solutions in different markets, ACMA recognises that there are more markets to penetrate. This conference builds the business case for pultrusion, delivering the latest knowledge and technical resources to current pultruders, as well as OEMs that want to learn more about how pultruded products can make their products better,” said ACMA President, Tom Dobbins.

The confirmed educational programme for the conference will feature sessions on pultrusion technology in existing markets, such as marine, automotive, aerospace, and infrastructure, as well as new applications and technology.

In addition to the education sessions, Keynote presenter Steve Gonzalez, Director of the Major Projects Unit – Americas at Finnish-based elevator manufacturer KONE, will share his predictions for the future of pultrusion and detail the development of UltraRope, a pultruded carbon fibre cabling system for elevators.

Gonzalez is a mechanical engineer and patent holder with more than 20 years’ experience in the design, construction, analysis and optimization of commercial and industrial building systems, with special focus on buildings’ utilities and infrastructure.

 “While some leading companies use pultrusion to stay competitive and deliver exceptional, innovative products and services to end-users, there are many OEMs, suppliers, manufacturers and engineers that are not using pultrusion. The North American Pultrusion Conference meets an important need to educate and inform the industry about pultrusion,” commented Dr Elmar Witten, Secretary of EPTA.
