Overmoulded component in PtFS tooling cover. © NCCWorld leaders in composite innovation, design and manufacture, the National Composites Centre (NCC) is bringing together international businesses across all sectors to present and discuss advancements in composites overmoulding technology.

“Composite overmoulding technology specifically allows for the rapid manufacture of net-shape structural thermoplastic composites. It combines both laminate thermoforming and polymer injection moulding in one automated process, thus structural components with a valuable combination of high strength and integrated complex design features are able to be manufactured with a very low cycle time,” said Enrique Garcia, Chief Technology Officer at the NCC.

“Through NCC Discover: Composites Overmoulding 2019, we are connecting research and industry to allow them to discuss the key challenges they currently face, and the new technology innovations that may assist with solving those challenges.”

Keynote technical presentations will be given by:

  • Graeme Herlihy, President, Western Europe, of Engel Austria
  • James Myers, Head of R&D for Aerospace and Composite Applications at Victrex
  • Alan Banks, Innovation Supervisor – Lightweight Technology Engineering at Ford Motor Company

The one-day conference will also feature manufacturing demonstrations of the NCC’s Engel Duo 1700T organomelt research cell, technical poster presentations and guided collaborative workshop sessions. The full agenda will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
