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.

Form and colour for fibre composites

„Form follows function“ doesn’t always apply when it comes to consumer products. Because modern sports, household or electronic equipment has to be both functionally effective and also exhibit superior design and surface quality. Which is why plastics processors are investing so much time and effort into researching how to manufacture components which look and feel good.

With ColorForm, multiple-component parts - including those made from fibre-reinforced plastics - can be coated in a single process to give them a high-quality surface - as seen in this tool case.
