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: What’s in your opinion a strong advantage of composites in comparison to conventional materials?

A: The really fine thing about composites besides its mechanical properties is, that prototypes can be realized more cost efficient than in other styles, but offers many possibilities that can’t be realized with metal plates for example. In addition e.g carbon composites look impressive if they are clear coated – an eye catcher – what is in many cases important as prototypes should persuade customers, or should demonstrate the innovative power of a company.

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

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.
