The preliminary line-up has been announced for SpaceAM, a conference and exhibition highlighting the use of advanced materials in space technology that is scheduled to take place Sept. 15-16, 2020 in Leicester, U.K.
According to event organizer Fluency Marketing, SpaceAM will provide the opportunity to join the growing global space community. Among the conference speakers, representatives from the European Space Agency (ESA), the UK Space Agency (UKSPA), the Satellite Applications Catapult and London Economics will be joined by end-users and material suppliers, who will highlight technology and material advances across the sector. In addition, speakers from Oxford Space Systems (Didcot, U.K.), Toray Advanced Composites (Morgan Hill, Calif., U.S.), SHD Composites (Mooresville, N.C., U.S.) CRP Technology (Modena, Italy) and Haydale (Holmes Chapel, U.K.) will be joined by the University of Manchester and the University of Nottingham to highlight projects and case studies in the sector.
Sponsored by R&R Space (Montijo, Portugal) and TISICS (Farnborough, U.K.), the event is intended for innovators, suppliers and investors who are interested in hearing about the latest material developments and how to access funding opportunities.
Opportunities are still available to exhibit, attend or submit an abstract: visit spaceamcon.com for more information and to register.
“Additive manufacturing is nothing short of a revolution and its applicability doesn’t stop here on Earth. From CubeSats to interplanetary missions we’ll be talking about how to make the most of additive manufacturing advantages from here on out,” says Tony Mears, technology roadmapping and harmonization lead.
Siobhan Longhurst, events and communications director at Fluency Marketing, adds, “This exciting sector continues to be an area of high interest and growth globally. We’re looking forward to hearing from speakers and attendees about how the sky is no longer the limit.”
Applications aren't as demanding as airframe composites, but requirements are still exacting — passenger safety is key.
There are numerous methods for fabricating composite components. Selection of a method for a particular part, therefore, will depend on the materials, the part design and end-use or application. Here's a guide to selection.
