From 30th to 31st of October this year the 4th International Conference on Thermoplastics (ITHEC) will take place in Bremen. ITHEC is the first and unique expert conference focusing on The conference covers the latest developments in high performance thermoplastic composite applications in aerospace, automotive and energy applications, as well as transport and engineering.
At the same time, the accompanying 4th International Exhibition on Thermoplastic Composites also will take place. Here new lightweight concepts, material trends and innovative manufacturing technologies in the field of thermoplastic composites are displayed. The range of topics also includes measurement techniques, processes, welding techniques, quality control concepts, layout and simulation tools etc.
Presentation on the High Volume Thermoplastics Line
Experts in the thermoplastics industry as well as institutes, colleges and universities will come together at this conference. Airborne will be represented by Mark Muilwijk, process specialist thermoplastics at Airborne Composites Automation. Together with SABIC, Mark Muilwijk will give a presentation on the High Volume Thermoplastics Line, designed in the context of Industrialised and Digital Manufacturing of Thermoplastic Composites.
The main focus of the presentation will be automation of high volume production processes for thermoplastic composite parts. More specific: how to design and build a line that converts UD tape material to a consolidated product with minimum human intervention and scrap.
Join us October 30th 14:50 – 15:15
Mark Muilwijk´s presentation will take place on Tuesday 30th of October in Session D: Emerging Technologies (Borgward Saal, 14:50–15:15).
