New Concept for AVK-conference 2011

Juni 3rd, 2011 | By Thorsten Holtz in aerospace, Aerospace Industry, Allgemein, Automotive Industry, Awards, Business, COMPOSITES Forum, General, Innovation | No Comments »

I just got information that in 2011 AVK-conference set up a new new concept.

Compressed into two lecture series high-level speakers inform about various applications of fiber reinforced plastics. Thematically, the two series be divided into decision-makers and technicians blocks. In this way the needs of stakeholders are met even more.

  • Structural lightweight applications of thermoplastic composites by Joachim Graefe, Quadrant Plastic Composites AG
  • Carbon-thermoplastic manufacturing for the A350 XWB – From Idea to Series Production by Dr. Klaus Edelmann, Airbus Operations Ltd.
  • SMC tailgate, which are used in automotive premium segment by Dr. Walter Aichholzer, Mercedes-Benz.

These are just some Topics for 2011 convention. As I am a big supporter of panel discussions I am looking forward to this: „Future prospects of fiber reinforced plastics in the automotive“.
Stuttgart is well known for Automotive so I guess there will be some interesting heads discussing this.

See you there!

DYNA-MESS: New software for multi-axis, dynamic component testing

Oktober 19th, 2009 | By Angela in Exhibitors, Software | 1 Comment »

1Dnynamess_FahrradlenkerAt COMPOSITES EUROPE DYNA-MESS will present a new software programme for multi-axis, dynamic testing of composites. The new software combines phase control of exceptional accuracy with high ease of use. At the trade fair, DYNA-MESS will demonstrate the new DYNA-TCC (Test Control Center) software in a testing set-up with several servo-pneumatically actuated axes for dynamic tests of carbon fibre handlebars for bicycles.

Components subjected to complex loads and made of composite materials must be tested under realistic conditions. Handlebars of bicycles, for example, must withstand heavy, low-frequency loads during acceleration from rest and high-frequency loads on bumpy tracks. By no means must they break under extreme loads as, for example, during downhill runs or jumps. DYNA-MESS systems are ideally suited to realize such varying load situations.
