ITHEC 2020 5th International Conference & Exhibition on Thermoplastic Composites

ITHEC 2020, 5th International Conference and Exhibition on Thermoplastic Composites, October 13-14 in Bremen, Germany is accepting abstracts regarding cutting-edge topics in thermoplastic composites by February 15.  The organizers request a one-page abstract from engineers, scientists and industry experts working in the field of high-performance thermoplastic composites, as well as related manufacturing technologies and applications.

 

Growth in thermoplastic composites, new 3D printing Forum

ITHEC was launched in 2012 to focus on the latest developments in high-performance thermoplastic composites in aerospace, automotive, transport, energy and industrial applications.  The event has shown continuous, double-digit growth, including more than 40% for ITHEC 2018, which featured 370 conference delegates in a premium, two-day program including:  2 keynote lectures, 30 presentations and 20 research & development poster sessions. More than 50 exhibitors also presented their latest products and services. 

With 65% of participants from industry, ITHEC 2018 underlined the industrial relevance of this conference and the insight it offers into materials and processes that make high-performance composites more competitive for sustainable, high-volume production. 

ITHEC 2020 will continue to support this expansion of thermoplastic composites across a wide range of markets, featuring an enlarged exhibition and a new educational and networking experience: the Advanced Thermoplastic Composite 3D Printing Forum, powered by CompositesWorld.

Come and meet the leading international specialists to share expertise and to strengthen business cooperation and opportunities!

  • Supply and demand: Advanced fibers

    Demand for advanced fiber, virgin and reclaimed, is on an upswing after a dip during the recent recession. Fiber suppliers are gearing up to meet an expected increase in demand as manufacturers in a number of composites end-markets scale up or start up part development and production programs

  • Carbon fiber market: Gathering momentum

    All signs point to increasing demand from many market sectors. Will capacity keep pace?

  • Tooling

    Composite parts are formed in molds, also known as tools. Tools can be made from virtually any material. The material type, shape and complexity depend upon the part and length of production run. Here's a short summary of the issues involved in electing and making tools.
