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.

Expansion of renewable energies creating boom in composites

August 31st, 2011 | By Angela in Allgemein, Architecture, Business, Construction Industry, Design, Electronics, Engineering, Innovation, Technology, Wind Energy Industry | No Comments »

Done and dusted. The German government’s decision to withdraw from nuclear energy has also paved the way for the development of renewable forms of energy. The proportion of electricity generation from renewable sources is expected to rise to at least 80 percent by 2050. Wind energy is planned to play a major role in this. Last year the sector contributed 7.9 percent to the total amount of electricity generated in Germany.

The energy policy of the German government includes giving greater support to offshore wind farms. The remuneration for this power is to be raised to 15 cents per kilowatt hour. Operators of onshore wind turbines will continue to receive up to 10.2 cents per kilowatt hour. 0.5 cents are paid for power from new wind parks if the old equipment went online before 2002. The new turbine should also deliver twice the amount of power than the old one.

These factors therefore represent healthy prospects for the future of the wind power sector. The manufacturers of fibre-reinforced composites are also expecting to benefit from this development – because modern wind turbines are inconceivable without glass and carbon fibre-reinforced plastics. The organisers of the international Composites Europe (CE) exhibition, to be held from 27 to 29 September 2011 in Stuttgart, recognised this early on and are giving the industry the platform it deserves. Well-known producers and processors of fibre composites for the wind energy sector and the relevant machine producers and suppliers get together each year at the event.

But it is not only the presence of the big names which makes a visit to the exhibition so worthwhile. Jens-Hagen Wüstefeld from Starnberg, for instance, has developed a crystalline structure as a lightweight construction element. It yields an 85 percent reduction in weight, lower manufacturing costs, outstanding rigidity and design flexibility in comparison to a solid material. Starting out with a geometric concept, he made a three dimensional lattice from triangles, similar to a crystal structure. Any forces applied to such a symmetrical grid are distributed optimally to adjacent surfaces and edges.

These lightweight elements can be manufactured to any scale, from any materials and in any form – including those appropriate for wind turbines. The resulting reduced weight of the tower would allow the foundation to be simplified. And the lower weight of the rotor would result in lower bearing loads and therefore reduced wear and greater efficiency in the entire turbine. The reduced amounts of materials required would also reduce production costs. Individual segments can easily be joined together, simplifying both transportation and erection.

Form and colour for fibre composites

Juli 26th, 2011 | By Thorsten Holtz in Business, Consumer, Design, Electronics, Engineering, Household | 1 Comment »

„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.
