JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Professor and Architect Mark Goulthorpe, of the MIT Department of Architecture, confirmed as guest keynote speaker for the Future of Composites in Construction.
JEC Europe 2012 - Equip’Aero Technique has been supplying composite parts to the cabin interior market for a few years now. From design, material characterization, environmental testing, prototyping, qualification and manufacturing, Equip’Aero Technique provides complete solutions to its customers.
The company has developed a new manufacturing process for secondary structural parts applications. This process consists in injection moulding of short fibres and thermoset resin. Finished 3D composite parts can be obtained directly from tooling.
The main characteristics of this new generation of composite parts are:
- High mechanical properties in all 3 dimensions
- Low mass compared to equivalent aluminium design (up to 40% saving)
- No delamination
- Short lead times
- Low recurring and non-recurring costs
