Plastics reinforced with carbon fibre (CFRP), glass or natural fibres are seen as the key technology to reduce energy consumption. Especially with CFRP there are wide opportunities, most promising in their performance.
The big challenge at the moment is to bring the material into volume production and reduce costs to come to automation, efficient processing technologies and shorter cycle times.
The variety and specialty of composites makes them not only demanding but also interesting versatility applicable. While simulation, testing and developments go on, appearing challenges and innovative applications shall be discussed at this year´s conference about automotive composites.
Topics to be discussed include:
The event will take place on the 02 - 04 December, 2013, at the Hilton Bonn Hotel, Bonn, in Germany.
