Advanced Engineering 2017 in Birmingham

Friday, September 22, 2017

Advanced Engineering 2017 announced already in July that its composites zone was over 90 % full with only 10 stands remaining, with companies such as Meg­gitt Polymers & Composites, Penso, Rehau and Hexcel participating at the show.

The Composites Engineering zone has already attracted leading names from the industry including Mercedes AMG F1, Williams Advanced Engineering, Airbus, GKN Autostruc­ tures Ltd and 3M Advanced Materials UK, who will be looking to meet and do busi­ness with other industry individuals. The show has established itself as one of the world’s most important composite raw ma­terial, design, processing and applications events. New for this year are: a dedicated zone for Industry 4.0, Connected Manufac­turing; an expanded zone for start­ups spon­ sored by Magna International; and a brand new co­locating show, Lab Innovations, for laboratory manufacturers and suppliers. Advanced Engineering 2017 are pleased to also announce a competition to all exhibitors with prizes for those who bring the most vis­itors to the 2017 show through registering using their trackable link. The two exhibitors who bring the most visitors will win a free 6 m2 stand in the 2018 show and a free full­ page advert in the 2018 show guide. Visitors will see cutting edge technology and materials, everything that is needed in today’s composites industry, including: raw materials and chemicals; semi­finished and intermediate products; composites design, analysis and simulation; trade processors and fabricators; processing technology equipment; tooling and ancillaries; com­posites machining and joining; compos­ite assembly and automation technology; composites finishing technologies; com­posites maintenance and recycling; com­posites training; ... and many more. The rise of composite materials continues across an ever ­increasing number of appli­cations. The advances provided by compos­ite materials within automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, construction and oil and gas, to name just a few, are revolutionis­ing businesses and benefiting millions of people with the industry showing no signs of slowing down.
