For this 2019 edition, JEC World, which takes place from 12-14 March in Paris, organises a full programme of conferences, round tables, dedicated showcases for aerospace professionals to present trends and innovations, where composites are at the heart of the challenges to come.

“The aerospace industry is one of the biggest users of composite materials, but where do the next-generation opportunities lie? How will the composites industry meet aerospace demand for higher performance materials and designs with increased functionality and technologies to enable high rate production? This is the reason why JEC World has developed a full programme to address these questions linked to the aerospace industry challenges,” the organisers explain.

The programme will include technical conferences, round tables, innovative area and pre-arranged business meetings. These include a session of technical conferences on 12 March that will focus on Aeronautics: technologies for the future legacy programmes, with speakers from Cetim, Hexcel, Airbus, Chomarat, MTorres, Plataine, Aerocomposit, and more.

On the same day, the Agora stage will host the Aerospace Composites Circle with an exclusive keynote presentation by Dirk Gebser, from Lilium, on Call to action for a new world, followed by the Hexion conference welcoming speakers from Composyst, Hexion Research and Hübers, on Technology for Advanced Composite Epoxy Systems.

During the three days of the show, the Composites Exchange programme will present workshops for aerospace, among which are Boosting AFP material efficiency with fibre patch placement, as well as Innovative solid lubricant made from water soluble resin.

In terms of innovation, aerospace professionals will be able to discover more than 40 innovative parts within the Aero&Space planet, reducing costs and raising production rates, with workshops sponsored by Huntsman and Saint Gobain and with Toray, Porcher Industries, and more.

Visitors can also attend the pitches of the 10 Start Up Booster finalists selected by Airbus, on 12 March at the Agora.

The Innovation awards finalists in the Aerospace Application category include Compo Tech Plus SPOL, for its composite aileron structure cured in one step; and Deutsches Zentrum für Luft, for primary structure for sounding rockets. In the Aerospace Process category, Applus+ Laboratories has been shortlisted for its automated manufacturing process; and Cecence became a finalist for its fully compliant 16G composite aero seatback. Winners will be named on Wednesday on the Agora stage, starting with the keynote speech by Bertrand Piccard, initiator and Chairman of Solar Impulse Foundation.

Finally, aerospace professionals can discover within the 1,300 exhibitors solutions and processes dedicated to their challenges, as well as join the Composites in Action for Aerospace, presenting the most recent scientific and technologic developments in this sector. And they can participate to the official business meetings programme to meet with pre-qualified companies.
