JEC World 2018 preview: Infiana and Fraunhofer
Specialty films manufacturer Infiana and the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM will jointly exhibit at JEC World 2018 in Paris March 6-8.
Specialty films manufacturer Infiana and the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM will jointly exhibit at JEC World 2018 in Paris March 6-8, at the CFK Valley community booth (H5A / E58).
In recent months, both partners have continued to intensively refine the FlexPLAS technology – which makes it possible to produce composite parts without liquid release agents – and developed new application options. Now Infiana and Fraunhofer IFAM are looking forward to presenting these ideas at JEC World 2018.
JEC World visitors can also look forward to a joint presentation from Infiana and industry partner AkzoNobel on March 7th in Hall 6/Room 611 of the Conference Center. The presentation will be delivered as part of the JEC Conference session "Renewable Energies: Wind & Beyond." Under the heading “The New Generation of Blade Production,” both partners will demonstrate the advantages of their combined industry experience and report on application and process opportunities.
Fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) replacing coated steel in more reinforced-concrete applications.
Lightweight, hard and stable at high temperatures, CMCs are emerging from two decades of study and development into commercial applications.
As the wind energy market continues to grow, competition heats up between glass and carbon fiber composites for turbine blades.
