SAMPE celebrates 75th anniversary at SAMPE 2019
Dr. Greg Hylsop from Boeing will give the keynote presentation at SAMPE 2019 in Charlotte, N.C., U.S. Technical and young professional awards will also be presented.
The Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE) will hold its annual event from May 20-23 at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, N.C., U.S.
Marking its 75th anniversary, SAMPE will host a special celebration that includes opening keynote speaker, Dr. Greg Hyslop, chief technical officer at Boeing (Chicago, Ill., U.S.), technical paper presentations, tutorials and multiple exhibitions. The culmination will be an awards breakfast to recognize young professionals and outstanding technical content.
Hyslop will open the conference by sharing some of his perspectives on these innovation, exploration and scientific discovery, and on how the community represented within SAMPE can leverage and maximize such world-changing impacts in the coming years.
In addition to recognizing several young professionals, three technical paper awards winners will be announced:
First place: Drexel University’s “Multiscale Approaches to Formation of Thermoplastic Prepreg Short Carbon Fiber”
Second place: Arevo Inc.’s “Reliable Optimized Structures with High Performance Continuous Fiber Thermoplastic Composites from Additive Manufacturing (AM)”
Third place: Boeing’s “Spring Frame Press Fabrication of Aerospace Production Components”
“SAMPE has been known, since its inception 75 years ago, as the place where people who work in materials and processing can come together and get their industrial and manufacturing problems solved. At our core, we have always been a technology ideas aggregator,” says Gregg Balko, CEO. “We are happy and excited to celebrate this special SAMPE anniversary — a major milestone to commemorate the goals accomplished by some of the hardest working professionals across multiple industries — people we’re proud to call our members.”
SAMPE also recently announced a strategic partnership with Boeing earlier this year.

Compared to legacy materials like steel, aluminum, iron and titanium, composites are still coming of age, and only just now are being better understood by design and manufacturing engineers. However, composites’ physical properties — combined with unbeatable light weight — make them undeniably attractive.
