The organizers of the 2018 Composites Innovation Conference have issued a call for papers.

The conference takes place from 20–21 June 2018 in Nottingham, UK and focuses on innovation related to the automation of processes for light-weighting and increased composites production rate. The conference programme will cover engineering disciplines from manufacturing, design, industrial, tooling, quality, and mechanical.

  • Abstracts are now being accepted on subjects including but not limited to:
  • Automation solutions
  • Increased process productivity
  • Optimisation of manufacturing processes
  • Next generation of composite manufacturing and postprocessing
  • Development of quality control mechanisms
  • Production strategies
  • Software capabilities
  • Process simulation
  • Materials and equipment
  • Automated Inspection and quality assurance
  • Competitive advantages.

‘With a focus on emerging technologies and new innovations in the expansion of composites manufacturing, the event will showcase the latest efficient processes and automation solutions whilst exploring the challenges faced,’ said Sue Keighley, events manager at NetComposites.
