Proximity will be presenting the benefits of DELMIAWORKS manufacturing software at three British Plastics Federation (BPF) events over the next few weeks – starting with the Thermoplastics seminar on 3rd October 2019 in central London.

On 5th November, we’ll be attending the Automotive Conference at Jaguar Land Rover’s facility in Castle Bromwich, followed by the Packaging Seminar on the 28th November.

Thermoplastic Composites Seminar 2019

When: 3 October 2019

Where: BPF House, London, EC2A 3JE

Run jointly by the Composites UK, the trade body for the composites industry, and the BPF, this seminar explores how thermoplastic composites will be used in the aircraft of the future, showcasing the latest technological developments and new approaches in the field of thermoplastic composites. The BPF and Composites UK event will look at topics including over moulding, hybrid moulding and perforated composites.

Composites are used in a range of aerospace applications, including engine blades, brackets, interiors, nacelles, propellers/rotors, single aisle wings, wide body wings. According to the Composites UK website, for example:

“The Airbus 320 uses a range of components made from composites, including the fin and tailplane.  This has allowed a weight-saving of 800 kg over its equivalent in aluminium alloy.  Composite materials comprise more than 20% of the A380’s airframe. Carbon-fibre reinforced polymer and glass-fibre reinforced are used extensively in wings, fuselage sections (such as the undercarriage and rear end of fuselage), tail surfaces, and doors”.
