The EPSRC Future Composites Manufacturing Research Hub will be attending the International Composites Summit (ICS) in London on 21-22 September 2022 and will be located at Pod 30.
The Hub aims to underpin the growth potential of the composites industry. With a valuable platform in ICS, development outcomes can be promoted from the fundamental research being conducted in automated composite manufacturing technologies across the 15 UK university partners. The research challenges address the needs of our diverse industrial partner network, covering sectors such as automotive, aerospace and energy storage.
The Hub will be showcasing research outcomes from five priority areas:
- High-rate deposition and rapid processing technologies.
- Design for manufacture via validated simulation.
- Manufacturing for multifunctional composites and integrated structures.
- Inspection and in-process evaluation.
- Recycling and re-use.
Dr Lee Harper, Hub Manager said: “The International Composites Summit is an exciting opportunity to showcase all of the innovative work on composites manufacturing being conducted within our research network. We look forward to meeting members of the community in-person and discussing how we can further utilise composite materials to provide lightweight solutions for structural applications.”
ICS hosts the discussion of global supply chains and growth in the composites sector. To register for this free-to-attend exhibition, please visit the International Composites Summit website:
