Composites UK says that its Thermoplastic Composites event will explore how thermoplastic composites will be used in aircraft of the future.

The one-day seminar, which takes place on 3 October 2019 in London, will also cover topics such as over molding, hybrid molding and perforated composites.

Topics and speakers include:

  • ATI roadmap/strategy on the future for thermoplastic composites in aerospace, Alex Hickson, Aerospace Technology Institute
  • A new approach to hybrid molding, Chris Hare, Coventive Composites
  • Mechanical and damping performance of hybrid natural fibre, recycled and virgin carbon fiber laminates, Peter Wilson, WMG
  • Composites large scale projects, Hannah Tew, AMRC
  • Recent developments in thermoplastic composite overmolding, Sean Cooper, National Composites Centre
  • Perforated composites: manufacturing, modelling, and industrial applications, Chris Worrall, TWI Limited
  • Manufacturing process simulation for thermoplastic composites, louis barnes, wilde analysis
  • Over-molding potential for commercial structures, Jonathan Powell, Spirit AeroSystems (Europe) Ltd
