Get to know Munich Composites – innovative company – first time exhibitor – Interview with Martin Stoppel

September 3rd, 2013 | By Angela in Automotive Industry, Business, Composite production, Construction Industry, consulting, Design, Engineering, Exhibitors, Innovation, Sports industry, Technology | No Comments »

Have a look at this great interview with Martin Stoppel (MS). You can meet Munich Composites at COMPOSITES EUROPE 2013 – Stuttgart – booth 4/D02.

http://www.munich-composites.de

1. CE: Please introduce yourself. What are your responsibilities within your company Munich Composites?

MS: My name is Martin Stoppel, I work as the commercial director of Munich Composites.

2. CE: Could you give us a quick overview of your company?

MS: Munich Composites designs and produces hollow composite components with a new braiding technology. We have developed a holistic process from design to infiltration and setting. The advantage of our process is that we offer an automated production with a constant high quality also for complex geometries (e.g. undercuts, variable wall thinknesses). Depending on the quantity and geometry of the component, this results in cost advantages up to 30% in comparison to other manufacturing methods like prepreg, winding, or pultrusion.

International AVK Conference on 26 – 27 September 2011 – programme is online!

August 3rd, 2011 | By Angela in aerospace, Aerospace Industry, Automotive Industry, Awards, Biocomposites, Business, Composite production, Construction Industry, Engineering, Innovation, Technology | No Comments »

This year, once again, the AVK conference is the opening event of the COMPOSITES EUROPE trade fair, which is an important market place for your business with participants from the every stage of the industry’s value chain from 27 – 29 September.
The presentation of the AVK Innovation Award and Composites Night frame the event and provide an opportunity for informal communication.

The International AVK Conference in the ICS International Congress Center Stuttgart has a brand new concept.

In two series of lectures, prominent experts offer their insights into the many and diverse applications for fibre reinforced plastics. In order to reflect the needs of the different interest groups even more closely at the conference, the two series are divided into thematic blocks presented by executives and technology specialists respectively.

The speakers will focus on current developments and innovations in technologies, materials and new processes as well as on the general condition of the GRP and CRP market.
Some of the fascinating lectures include:

  • “Structural lightweight applications made from thermoplastic composites” by Joachim Graefe, Quadrant Plastic Composites AG
  • “Thermoplastic composites for the A350 XWB” by Dr. Klaus Edelmann, Airbus Operations GmbH.
  • Dr. Walter Aichholzer of Mercedes-Benz talks about the SMC decklid used in the premium automotive segment.
http://avk-tv.de/

AVK represents the interests of all companies and institutions in the value chain involving components made of fibre-reinforced plastics and engineering thermosets

In a special lecture block “Research for practical application” professors from renowned universities and institutes report on trends, comparative studies of materials, series manufacturing applications and the wide range of design possibilities offered by fibre reinforced plastics.
The conference closes with a panel discussion titled “The future of fiber composites and plastics in the automotive sector” in which well-known participants from the automotive industry and its suppliers consider the current state of technology.

Have a look at the AVK conference programme now here.

Composites giving the Airbus wings

August 2nd, 2011 | By Angela in aerospace, Allgemein, Business, Composite production, COMPOSITES Forum, Innovation, Technology | 1 Comment »

Airbus is outstripping Boeing. At the world’s largest aviation trade show held recently at Le Bourget near to Paris, the competition between the two largest aircraft makers for the custom of the airlines dominated the news coverage. The Europeans attracted 730 orders (418 of which were binding) to a total value of roughly EUR 50 billion whereas the Americans “merely” posted 142 orders (58 of which binding) worth EUR 15 billion.

The Airbus A320 NEO is to be launched in 2015 and consumes 15 percent less fuel than the current model (photo: Airbus/Fixion).

VDMA to be institutional patron of COMPOSITES EUROPE

Juli 27th, 2011 | By Frank in Allgemein, Business, Composite production, General, Innovation, Technology, VDMA | No Comments »

Fantastic news for Composites Industry. VDMA “Composites Technology Forum” is now an institutional patron of COMPOSITES EUROPE. This helps to create the leading platform for serially produced composites parts. Composite Technology Forum counts on serial production

The VDMA (Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau) is the largest engineering industry network in Europe. It represents 3000 mainly small- to medium-sized member companies in the engineering industry.
Accounting for sales of roughly € 173 billion in 2010, mechanical engineering is one of the largest industrial sectors and employers in Germany. Roughly two thirds of German production is exported.
VDMA has recently formed a Composite Technology Forum, a new network for machinery manufacturers engaged in the development and production of technologies for the manufacture and quality control of composite materials.
