The 2nd CIRP CCMPM follows on from the success of the 1st conference of its kind, which was founded in 2017 by our esteemed colleagues, Professor Jürgen Fleischer and Professor Roberto Teti. The need for such a conference was identified during a namesake CIRP Collaborative Working Group (CWG). Since the formation of these CWG meetings, the topics “Design and Lifecycle”, “Part Generation” and “Part Finishing and Assembly” were each discussed in every meeting, and always with a focus on industrial use-cases. The aim of the conference is to bring together and share novel production research, technologies and solutions to the global composite manufacturing community. This is underpinned by an international scientific committee of highly esteemed researchers of composite material parts manufacturing and other related research areas.
The 2nd CIRP CCMPM will take place at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC). The AMRC is a network of world-leading research and innovation centres working with manufacturing companies from micro-SMEs to multi-national giants around the globe. Within this network, the AMRC’s Composite Centre aims to utilise innovative manufacturing methods to produce ultra-lightweight components from composite materials. The plan during this conference is to demonstrate and exhibit a number of new and innovative technologies under the topics of ‘Design and Lifecycle’, ‘Part Generation’ and ‘Part finishing and assembly’ that deliver real world benefits. These will be interspersed within three parallel sessions concerning the aforementioned topics.
