Composites initially touted as “Aerospace Materials” are fast emerging and finding their applications in Defence, Automotive and other industrial applications. Composite materials are finding increased applications considering their advantages of improved performance through parts consolidation, weight saving and ability to tailor materials properties. The advent of improved CAD and CAE tools have been instrumental in designing optimized composites products considering directional properties. Today’s composites designers can choose their fibres, resin, fibre-resin ratio, changing cross-sections and materials distribution to enhance and optimise performance parameters of end-product.
Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing an online programme on “Industrial applications of composites and their manufacturing”. The program will cover wide range of composites application in Aerospace, Defence and Automotive industries. This program will illustrate various tooling and manufacturing processes currently being used. Program will highlight the Opportunities & Challenges faced by the composites industry and how to get this started. Emerging trends in composites technology and their growth and applications is also the part of this program.
At the end of the program, the participants shall be able to understand:
