Italy, Carrara

Compotec is an exhibition in Italy entirely dedicated to research, production, making up and technologies of composite materials. Its target is to bring together universities, research institutes, industries, organizations and media in a three days event in order to present the composite technologies, processes and developments.

This event will take place on 5-7 February 2020 in Carrara, Italy.


Composite Sandwich Conference

Germany, Halle

Sandwich construction based on fiber-reinforced plastics enables highly efficient lightweight structures and thus already makes an enormous contribution to resource conservation in a large number of applications. While the topic of lightweight construction is widely discussed in many congresses and conferences, there are only a few conferences worldwide focusing on sandwich construction and sandwich core materials.

ThermHex Waben and Fraunhofer IMWS are organizing the Composite Sandwich Conference to exchange knowledge on current trends in material and technology development in the field of composite sandwich construction.

Besides the professional exchange and the opportunity to network, new fields of application of sandwich materials will be pointed out and discussed. On the evening before the conference the participants will also be offered a visit to ThermHex production plant and a guided tour at the Fraunhofer pilot plant center for polymer synthesis and processing.

The lecture part will be divided into 3 thematic blocks, in which the following aspects will be considered:

· Industrial applications

· Material properties and developments

· Technologies and production processes

This event will take place on 5-6 February 2020 in Halle (Saale), Germany.


Workshop on recycled carbon fibres for high value composites

Italy, Brindisi

The workshop aims to encourage an effective communication among the companies of the value chain. The last developments and innovations on recycled carbon fibres will be showed by important companies in the sector. The presentations will be focused on recycled carbon fibre properties, composite material transformation processes, equipment and applications.

Strategic speeches will be held by two leaders in the field of recycled carbon fibres at global level: Mr. Torsten Müller (Fraunhofer ICT), who will focus on transportation field, and Mr. Frazer Barnes (ELG Carbon Fibre), who will contextualize the role of recycling in the development of the carbon fibre industry. The workshop is part of the dissemination activities of the REVALUE project – “REcycled carbon fibres for high VALUE composites”. This event will take place on 28 November 2019 in Brindisi, Italy.
