Dr. Elmar Witten, spokesman for the management of the Composites Germany trade association, reveals the trends that the ICC is following this year.
Which topics currently occupy the composites industry the most?
In international competition, solutions with a high degree of automation are particularly important for the composites industry. The entire industry is working on this. In the mobility sector, reducing the cost of a component and also reducing the number of individual elements in a final product are important goals for manufacturers.
What topics will you be highlighting at the conference?
Multi-material solutions are a topic for the future. In the construction sector, we will also be dealing with the increasing use of carbon concrete. In process technologies, we will focus on the processing of thermoplastic materials for series production and stable processes in thermoset processing.
Be ready for the new opportunities of the Composites market!
The composites industry is currently providing important impetus - for modern mobility concepts, for material innovations in the growing construction sector or for sustainability in many other applications. In international competition, solutions with a high degree of automation are in demand for the composites industry. The International Composites Conference 2019 shows the progress made in process technologies and brings fresh ideas for innovations to the market.
From 10 to 12 September, the industry meeting will bring together processors and users of fibre-reinforced plastics from all over Europe.
