Germany, Hamburg

For the  fourth time the Association of German Engineers (VDI) has the pleasure of inviting you to the International VDI Conference "EUCOMAS" taking place on 7 and 8 February 2012 in Hamburg.


Experts from industry and science will be discussing new material developments with particular emphasis on development, simulation and component manufacture using CFRP, TiAL, ceramics and metal lightweight stuctures. Representatives with a broad industrial background will talk about subjects like:

  • SAFRAN: Cast TiAL components: Process engineering and Research Challenges
  • Aleris: Innovation AlMgSc-Solutions for Aircraft Applications
  • MTU Aero Engines: Forged TiAL components: Process engineering and research challenges
  • TITAL: ß-heat treatment of TiAl6V4 investment casting parts
  • Embraer: FSW Applied to Mid Size Aircrafts
  • EADS: Custom-made Friction-Stir-Welding solution by DeltaN
  • Eurocopter: Virtual Autoclave Implementation for Improved Composite Part Quality and Productivity
  • MT Aerospace: CMC composites in aerospace and terrestrial applications


With their keynote speeches Axel Krein, Airbus S.A.S and Dr. Karl Echtermeyer, Lufthansa AG will try to give a better understanding of how the aircraft industry views future technology developments.


To make this conference a true success, there will be a special evening reception at Hamburg Town Hall as well as a plant tour at Airbus where you will have the chance to see the sub-assembly of the Airbus 320 and 380.


Get yourself up-to-date and make new contacts - don't be shy to grab a seat at the "EUCOMAS 2012".
