COMPOSITES EUROPE: now annually in Stuttgart

Die COMPOSITES EUROPE, seit 2006 eine der erfolgreichsten Industriemessen in Europa, findet ab kommendem Jahr jährlich in Stuttgart statt. Bislang veranstaltet Reed Exhibitions die Europäische Fachmesse für Verbundwerkstoffe, Technologie und Anwendungen alternierend in Düsseldorf und Stuttgart. Mit dem Wechsel in einen jährlichen Turnus am Standort Stuttgart folgt die COMPOSITES EUROPE dem Wunsch der Aussteller und dem einstimmigen Votum des Fachbeirats.

Die COMPOSITES EUROPE, seit 2006 eine der erfolgreichsten Industriemessen in Europa, findet ab kommendem Jahr jährlich in Stuttgart statt. Bislang veranstaltet Reed Exhibitions die Europäische Fachmesse für Verbundwerkstoffe, Technologie und Anwendungen alternierend in Düsseldorf und Stuttgart. Mit dem Wechsel in einen jährlichen Turnus am Standort Stuttgart folgt die COMPOSITES EUROPE dem Wunsch der Aussteller und dem einstimmigen Votum des Fachbeirats.

Ausschlaggebend sei die Nähe zu den Industriezweigen, in denen faserverstärkte Werkstoffe zum Einsatz kommen. Das gilt speziell für die Automobilbranche, den Fahrzeugbau, die Luft- und Raumfahrt sowie die Elektrobranche, wie Olaf Freier, Event Director der COMOPOSITES EUROPE, betont: „Die Region Stuttgart und Baden-Württemberg insgesamt sind Innovations¬treiber in vielen Anwendungsbranchen. Sie ist die größte und dynamischste Industrieregion in Deutschland und einer der wichtigsten Produktions- und Technologie¬standorte in Europa.“

Das unterstreicht auch Peter Egger in seiner Funktion als Beiratsvorsitzender der COMPOSITES EUROPE: „In Zukunft wird es darum gehen, mit modernsten Produktions- und Automatisierungs¬lösungen die Serienfertigung voranzutreiben, um weitere Markt-potentiale zu erschließen. Hier erwartet die Branche zusätzliche Impulse von der Standortentscheidung.“ Denn 25 Prozent der Maschinen- und Anlagenbauer haben ihren Sitz in Baden-Württemberg.

Breite Zustimmung für die Standortentscheidung kommt auch aus der Industrie und von den Partnern der COMPOSITES EUROPE.

Seit der Erstveranstaltung der COMPOSITES EUROPE 2006, damals mit 143 Ausstellern und etwas über 3.000 Fachbesuchern, hat sich die Messe zur Nummer 1 im wichtigsten europäischen Markt entwickelt und mehr als verdreifacht. Besonders dynamisch verlief die Entwicklung der COMPOSITES EUROPE in Stuttgart, wo zuletzt 470 Aussteller vertreten waren. In diesem Jahr zeigen in Düsseldorf über 350 Aussteller aus 27 Nationen den gesamten Produktions- und Fertigungsprozess von Faserverbundwerkstoffen. Damit spiegelt die COMPOSITES EUROPE die große Dynamik im Markt für innovative Leichtbautechnik in Europa wider, so Olaf Freier: „Mit insgesamt 48 nationalen und internationalen Verbänden und Industrieclustern, in denen weltweit 13.000 Unternehmen organisiert sind, bringt die COMPOSITES EUROPE bereits heute eines der international größten Netzwerke zusammen.

„Die Entscheidung „pro Stuttgart“ ist keine „Weg-von-Entscheidung“, macht unterdessen Hans-Joachim Erbel, CEO Reed Exhibitions Deutschland, deutlich: „Düsseldorf ist ein sehr guter Gastgeber und idealer Standort für die ALUMINIUM. Entscheidend dafür sei auch hier die Marktnähe. Denn Nordrhein-Westfalen ist sowohl bei der Produktion von Primär-aluminium wie auch bei der Fertigung von Halbzeugen das mit Abstand bedeutsamste Bundesland in Deutschland und Zentrum in Europa. Fast 60 Prozent des deutschen Branchenumsatzes werden zwischen Rhein und Weser erwirtschaftet.

Die kommende COMPOSITES EUROPE, 12. Europäische Fachmesse & Forum für Verbundstoffe, Technologien und Anwendungen, findet vom 19.09. bis 21.09.2017 in Stuttgart statt.

Q&A with Mr. Iain Fergusson from Fillworth – meet them at booth 7/E45 in Stuttgart – COMPOSITES EUROPE show

August 24th, 2015 | By Angela in aerospace, Aerospace Industry, Architecture, Automotive Industry, Business, Composite production, Construction Industry, consulting, Design, Engineering, Exhibitors, Fiber, Innovation, Manufacturing, Marine, Technology | No Comments »

Q: Please introduce yourself. What are your responsibilities within your company Fillworth UK Ltd?

A: My name is Iain Fergusson, Sales Executive at Fillworth (UK) Ltd, responsible for sales and new business development of our range of Industrial Mixing Equipment. To the UK / European and global markets.

Q: Could you give us a quick overview of your company Fillworth UK Ltd?

A: Fillworth (UK) Ltd specializes in the design and manufacture of high performance, advanced technology industrial mixing machines and the associated processing technology.  We are positioned in the upper, quality segment of the market for this type of equipment, which is sold predominantly but not exclusively to the various branches of the composites and chemicals manufacturing industries.

We focus by tradition on some of the more demanding applications in adhesives, fillers and sealants, and this includes the processing of advanced composite raw materials. This latter places special demands on the technology and equipment used to achieve the desired end results.

Our USP is that as a specialist manufacturer we can adapt and customize our machines to individual customer requirements more so than is the case with some of our larger competitors.  Where this results in a machine that is more fit for purpose, the advantages in the long term are obvious.

Many of our machines are still in active service after 25 years, with only the occasional need of attention from our dedicated mobile service engineers. Read Full Post

Interview with Michael Scharmer, Chief Executive Officer of MSC Polymer AG at COMPOSITES EUROPE show

Oktober 4th, 2011 | By Angela in aerospace, Aerospace Industry, Allgemein, Architecture, Automotive Industry, Boatbuilders, Business, Composite production, COMPOSITES Forum, Construction Industry, consulting, Design, Engineering, Exhibitors, Innovation, Technology, Wind Energy Industry | No Comments »

We met Michael Scharmer at our show in Stuttgart. For MSC Polymer AG it is a premiere to exhibit at CE show. www.msc-polymer.com

Q: Question

MS: Answer of Michael Scharmer

Michael Scharmer (man on the right side on the picture) www.msc-polymer.com/

Michael Scharmer (man on the right side on the picture) www.msc-polymer.com/

Q: Please introduce yourself and MSC Polymer AG.

MS: MSC Polymer AG is a capital markets company LC. I am in the bord of directors as a director of technology and the Chief Executive Officer. 1988 the company was founded as a technical consulting company. Later on it had been developed towards a distributor of materials. Glass fibre reinforced epoxy laminates are the backbone of the classical PCB. Our customers already expected that we supply materials for premanufactured and pretooled. So we had to invest in suitable machinery and step by step we became a manufacturer of glass fibre reinforced parts for broad applications (despite PCB, our core business). We are at at the COMPOSITES EUROPE show because we had more and more inquieries asking for new materials as they are being shown here.We knew nobody in this industry, now we know a lot! Exhibitions are not only to attract new customers, but also to come in touch with the industry. We wanted to find new suitable suppliers and tool makers. In addition, we have a lot of contacts, for example to science institutions. It is really worth to come here. The next time in Düsseldorf we will bring more examples with us made of carbon fibre. In a few years we want to become an important European player in the manufacture of 3D-parts for many application industries, especially for the machinery industry.

Q: So how did you come to the COMPOSITES EUROPE show?

MS: We observed the development within the composites industry and the COMPOSITES EUROPE trade show. I asked myself where is this industry going? Looks like it is getting really important. I would have come as a visitor anyway. So why not taking a booth? The stand is also a meeting point. It can not be replaced by google or other social platforms. In the evening you also meet your visitors in the same hotel at the bar. This trade show is very well organized, not bureaucratic at all and our administration efforts to manage our participation were markable low compared to other major German exhibitions.

Moreover, it takes place in one of Germany’s most beautiful exhibition centres!
