Thus there had been several tech-talks with leading automotive companies and suppliers. The interest persists also through out the follwing days, mainly in the projection and measuring laser Z3D/ZLP-Control and the ZLP-Laser projector. Both Z-LASER products are primarily used in the processing of composite materials, but also at the alignment of components and the scanning of its surfaces.</p></div><p><a href="http://www.jeccomposites.com/news/composites-news/z-laser-products-high-attention" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Business Innovations Aeronautics & Aerospace Automotive Construction & Infrastructure Marine Mass Transportation Pipes & Tanks Sports & Leisure Wind Energy Other sectors Robots & Automation Other Equipment Fri, 06 May 2016 07:00:00 +0000 editor 49466 at http://www.jeccomposites.com Solvay announces new application testing laboratory in Shanghai http://www.jeccomposites.com/news/composites-news/solvay-announces-new-application-testing-laboratory-shanghai <div class="field field-type-text field-field-news-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Solvay Engineering Plastics announces the creation of a dedicated part testing laboratory in Shanghai, China, to support the growth of its customers in the Asia region.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-news-square-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/news/composites-news/solvay-announces-new-application-testing-laboratory-shanghai" class="imagecache imagecache-news-square-image-view-list imagecache-linked imagecache-news-square-image-view-list_linked"><img src="http://www.jeccomposites.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/news-square-image-view-list/content/images/square_image/32428-19593-v97e7km8t0-whr.jpg" alt="Solvay announces new application testing laboratory in Shanghai" title="Solvay announces new application testing laboratory in Shanghai" class="imagecache imagecache-news-square-image-view-list" width="74" height="49" /></a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-field-body"><p><strong></strong> Starting end of this year, this first Application Performance Testing (APT®) center outside Europe aims at accelerating the development and validation of Technyl® applications for automotive, consumer and electrical markets.<br /></p></div><p><a href="http://www.jeccomposites.com/news/composites-news/solvay-announces-new-application-testing-laboratory-shanghai" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Business Asia-Pacific insight Automotive Mass Transportation Other sectors Thermosetting Resins Fri, 06 May 2016 07:00:00 +0000 editor 49472 at http://www.jeccomposites.com CFM LEAP-1B achieves joint EASA / FAA certification http://www.jeccomposites.com/news/composites-news/cfm-leap-1b-achieves-joint-easa-faa-certification <div class="field field-type-text field-field-news-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>CFM International’s advanced LEAP-1B engine was simultaneously awarded Type Certificates by both the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), paving the way for entry into commercial service in 2017.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-field-body"><p>CFM is unique in that it is the only engine manufacturer to gain dual original certification from both agencies, rather one lead agency issuing a type certification and the second agency validating that certification.
