Attendees at CAMX will be able to see the new site live at workstations in the Composites One booth. They will be able to navigate through the site and provide feedback to Composites One team members. A mobile version will also be available for those who prefer to use their phones to search for product or process information.

Once again, Composites One and the Closed Mold Alliance will present the Lean Mean Closed Mold Machine demonstration live on the CAMX exhibit hall floor. This year, the event has been dubbed the Super Demo and will feature five industry segmented demonstrations and one presentation focused on new technology. The featured market segments are marine, oil and gas, wind energy, aerospace and transportation/automotive.  The demos feature closed mold processes like light resin transfer molding (RTM), vacuum infusion, and reusable silicone bag molding. The demonstration will also feature prepreg on two large parts, cured using an oven supplied by Wisconsin Oven, also a CAMX exhibitor.   Products, including many high-performance solutions, featured in the demonstration are provided by partners: 3A Composites, AOC Resins, Airtech International, Arekma, CCP Composites, ChemTrend, Chomarat, ITW Plexus, Huntsman, Magnum Venus Plastech, Owens Corning, Sworl, United Initiators, Vectorply Corporation with tooling provided by Airtech  International, Carbon Craft, RTM Solutions and VX Aerospace.

In addition to the website launch and the live demonstration, Composites One is presenting two technical sessions at CAMX 2014. The first is a technical paper titled, "A Composite Manufacturer's Decision Process Leading to Silicone Vacuum Bag Selection," will be presented by James Noonan, technical support manager at Composites One. The second session, titled "Optimizing Surface Finish for Closed Molding," is a panel discussion featuring Composites One supplier partners and is moderated by Jim Noonan, technical support manager for Composites One.
