Dedicated to developments and insights of integrative production technologies and organized in partnership with universities, R&D and technology centers as well as startups, these thematical areas present the most recent technological developments, showcase innovative products or live demonstrations and give you the opportunity to freely meet in person with key interlocutors of these specific topics.

3D Printing Village

HALL 5, R92
The 3D PRINTING VILLAGE will showcase the latest technologies in additive manufacturing with live 3D demonstrations throughout the 3 days of the show by 9T Labs and Phoenix Composites Equipment.

Natural Fiber Village

HALL 5, C94
The strong growth of the composites market in multiple sectors creates key opportunities for biobased, renewable materials. They anticipate demands for sustainable development from consumers who are becoming more and more aware on such issues. In response to this acknowledgment and to the eco-design initiatives taking place within industry, JEC GROUP has been working in cooperation with the European Confederation of Flax and Hemp I CELC to set up a dedicated zone at JEC WORLD 2022 named the Natural Fibers Village.

The Village will give participants the opportunity to meet with some key players of the industry:

  • Design and market natural fibre reinforcements with high performance by BCOMP (Switzerland)
  • Transformation of composite materials: injection, thermoforming, and additive manufacturing of flax solutions by DEMGY (France)
  • TP prepregs from woven flax fibre, panels by FLIPTS & DOBBELS (Belgium)
  • 100% flax untwisted roving, weaves and hybrid reinforcements by DEPESTELE (France)
  • Low-twist flax roving, yarns and weave by SAFILIN (France)
  • Specifically selected and prepared flax fibers for composites – flax fiber roving production by TERRE DE LIN (France)
  • Collaborative development of flax preforms by FLOWER PROJECT (France/United-Kingdom)

Save the date: Composites Exchange on Tuesday 3rd May – 3.45- 4.10pm, Agora 5

  • Flax and Hemp Fiber Composites, a Market Reality: The Biobased Solutions for the Industry
  • Green efficiency European flax & hemp fibers: advanced natural materials for the composites industry.
    Presented by Pr. Ignaas Verpoest and PhD Gilles Koolen European Scientific Council of CELC.
