Once again, Composites One and the Closed Mold Alliance, along with more than 15 industry partners, will demonstrate in Booth V27 the latest advancements in closed molding and advanced processes for building real-life parts for marine, aerospace and other markets. “Last year, we shortened our demos into succinct, dynamic watch-and-learn presentations with practical tips and takeaways that attendees can then share with their employees and co-workers,” says Marcy Offner, director of marketing communications, Composites One. “This year’s event will build on that success with presentations on carbon fiber, a brand new 3D innovation, and another featuring multiple processes for building the same part, providing manufacturers with more options to consider.” Each presentation is focused on processes and products used in a key market segment such as marine, aerospace, architecture, automotive and consumer recreation.
