The 2nd edition of Composites United's Innovation Day on “Tailored Structures” focuses on the lightweight design of fibre-reinforced composites (FRP) based on minimal material usage. Exploiting the anisotropic properties of unidirectional composites plays a key role in this respect. At the event, recent developments in the design, manufacture, and use of such ultra-lightweight structures will be presented and discussed with international partners from science and industry. This will form the basis for sustainable and resource-conserving product development of future lightweight FRP applications.
Don’t miss Ruth Courtney, Engineering Capability Lead for Complex Deposition at the National Composites Centre (NCC) share insights into low-cost and large-scale manufacture using Tailored Fibre Placement (TFP) work. Expect to learn more about the Innovate UK KTN Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) scheme, and how a collaborative approach is enabling the UK SME, Carbon ThreeSixty Ltd to innovate and develop optimised products using TFP, supporting the business’ growth ambitions.
This session will be held online on Thursday, October 19th at 8:00 CET.
