Future Composite Manufacturing virtual symposium for AFP and AM
A demonstrator part combining AFP and AM processes.
Future Composite Manufacturing, a virtual symposium on automated fiber placement (AFP) and additive manufacturing (AM), is occurring Sept. 9-10, 2020 from 10:00 – 17:00 (CEST). The symposium is co-hosted by Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Australian National University (ANU), and supported by Composites United, MAI Carbon, one of the largest networks for fiber-based multi-material lightweight construction, and will discuss the current state, trends and opportunities for research and development in AFP and AM.
Some topics include:
- Additive manufacturing with short and continuous fiber reinforcement, automated;
- fiber placement with in-situ consolidation, industrial applications in the aerospace and automotive;
- industries, functionalization and characterization of composites for AFP and AM;
- and simulation of additive processes.
In addition to ANU and TUM, others will be leading the discussions including AFPT, Airbus (Toulouse, France), BMW (Munich, Germany), CEAD (Delft, Netherlands), the German Aerospace Center (DLR; Cologne, Germany), Fraunhofer (München, Germany), INOMETA (Herford, Germany), SGL Carbon (Wiesbaden, Germany) and Victrex (Thornton Cleveleys, U.K.).
