The National Composites Centre is bringing together international businesses across all sectors and research institutes to present and discuss advancements in composites overmoulding technology.
Composite overmoulding technology specifically allows for the rapid manufacture of net-shape 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.
Through NCC Discover: Composites Overmoulding 2019, we are connecting research and industry to enable attendees to discuss the key challenges they currently face, and the new technology innovations that that may assist with solving those challenges.
The one day conference, to be held at the NCC will also feature manufacturing demonstrations of the NCC's Engel Duo 1700T organomelt research cell, technical presentations and guided collaborative workshop sessions.
- Graeme Herlihy, President, Western Europe, Engel Austria
- James Myers, Head of R&D for Aerospace and Composite Applications at Victrex
- Alan Banks, Suspension Supervisor, Commercial Vehicle Chassis Engineering at Ford Motor Company
Who should attend
The conference is open to all interested businesses, however a broad spectrum of representatives from plastics injection-moulding, composites manufacturing, OEMs, tier-suppliers, tool manufacturers, universities and material suppliers are anticipated to be in attendance.
£100 or £75 for NCC Member organisations
