CAMX 2019 preview
The Composites and Advanced Materials Expo (CAMX) will be held Sept. 23-26, 2019 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Calif., U.S. The event is co-produced by the Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE; Diamond Bar, Calif., U.S.) and the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA; Arlington, Va., U.S.).
The exhibit hall will be open Sept. 24-26, and is expected to reflect nearly 600 exhibiting companies and more than 800 brands.
Alongside the exhibit hall, the conference program, which is divided into technical paper presentations and education sessions, is scheduled for Sept. 23-26, 2019. Campfire sessions for learning and networking with subject matter experts will return to the show this year at either end of Innovation Park.
Announced topics for CAMX 2019’s featured sessions include education, large-scale additive manufacturing, non-destructive inspection (NDI) technology, automation, tooling technology, composites recycling, bonding for hybrid systems, influences of the Materials Genome Initiative (MGI), the future of FRP concrete reinforcement, the evolution of transportation and its effect on material needs, and urban air mobility.
On Monday, Sept. 23, visitors can attend a number of more comprehensive, three-hour courses on focused subjects. Topics will include:
- Thermoplastic Composites
- Textile Technology for Advanced Composite Materials
- Composite Processing Technology – Reduced Risk by Using Digital Tools
- Engineering Ethics: Issues and Examples for Composites Technologists
- Additive vs. Traditional Composites Manufacturing
- Manufacturing of Honeycomb Sandwich Structures by Co-Cure Processing
- Troubleshooting Composites Production
- Engineering Concepts and Applications of Architectural and Structural FRP Materials
One industry topic stealing the spotlight this year is composites recycling. In the exhibit hall, attendees can network with manufacturers presenting recycling technology, and a featured display will highlight recycled parts and showcase innovations and current trends in composites recycling. Recycling will also feature in various conference presentations and in a featured session.
