Composites UK has announced the program for its next sector showcase event, which will look at the opportunities and challenges of using fibre-reinforced polymer composites in the aerospace industry.

The event, which takes place on 6 December in the Knowledge Transfer Centre of AMRC with Boeing in Rotherham, UK, will cover four topics: the aerospace industry – the big picture, technology strategy, composites in the aerospace supply chain and case studies from some Composites UK member companies already developing products and services for use by the aerospace industry.

Companies who are lined up to speak include Achieving the Difference, ADS Group, AMRC with Boeing, Composite Innovations, Composite Integration, GKN Aerospace Services, Heraeus Noblelight, Ipeco, M. Wright and Sons, Metrology Software Products, North West Aerospace Alliance, and TenCate Advanced Composites.

‘Our members asked us to provide more opportunities for them to ‘meet-the-buyer’ which has meant a natural progression of our sector showcase events,’ said communication manager, Claire Whysall. ‘This is the first time we have focussed on the aerospace industry.’
