The CAMX 2020 Webinar Series features four complementary education sessions, including two of our most popular and two new sessions. Open to all members of the composites industry, these webinars were designed by experts to help attendees gain a better understanding of composites.
Whether you are new to the composites industry or are interested in an overview of all aspects of composites materials and manufacturing, this is the program for you. The session provides basic information on the technical components of composites including the most common materials and manufacturing processes, and examples of how composites were specified and used in many applications across various market segments.
TOOLING 101 FOR COMPOSITES MANUFACTURING
Tooling forms and shapes every composite part or structure across many manufacturing processes and market applications. The materials used in making tools covers project phases from initial prototype periods through production runs which may be very few (like 10 parts) to several thousand (golf shafts or automotive parts). This presentation will cover the various types of tooling options.
This session builds on the information presented in Composites 101 with more focus on fiber reinforcements, polymers, and comparisons of materials to provide a greater understanding of FRP composite materials and properties and performance. An in-depth overview of common manufacturing processes including the process and product characteristics will be covered, as well as fundamental criteria for designing with composites, highlighting and comparing the benefits and advantages of common materials.
COMPOSITES FACTORY OF THE FUTURE
Composite manufacturing is changing as the manufacturing industry is more digital, more connected, and more agile to meet the growing demands of the industry.
