"Wind Energy meets Composites":
Exhibition Tour at COMPOSITES EUROPE
New adhesives for wind turbine blades, automated manufacturing processes for layering of NCF layers and innovative PET foams for enhanced form stability: more than ever before, this year's COMPOSITES EUROPE, which will host more than 400 exhibitors from 25 countries in Düsseldorf from 7 to 9 October, will focus on solutions for the wind energy sector. New materials, automated manufacturing processes as well as repair and maintenance services will play central roles.
This year's COMPOSITES EUROPE will provide quick and targeted access to the latest developments, particularly for manufacturers and operators of wind power plants. Heeding the motto "Wind Energy Meets Composites", guided tours of the show floor, organised in cooperation with OMWINDENERGY, will take place at 10:30 am and 1:00 pm on 8 October. The 90-minute tours will present opportunities for background discussions with associations and corporations along with insights into the manufacturing process.
A noontime networking reception at the Composites VIP Lounge will provide a venue for talks and an exchange of experiences among industry participants.
The exhibition tour will make stops at these locations, among others:
• Dow: new line of adhesives for resilient wind turbine blades
• 3A Composites: PET foam core material with optimised formability
• Zoltek: production-ready CFRP materials as structural components
• 3B Fibreglass: new composites for wind turbine blades
• Saertex: two-dimensional automated layup of NCF layers
There is no charge for attending the tour. If interested, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
"Wind power is faced with steadily increasing cost pressure, which requires the use of improved materials and automated manufacturing processes", says "Mr Wind Energy" Hanno Fecke, who supports COMPOSITES EUROPE in his role as "Wind Energy Ambassador". "The products and services on display at COMPOSITES EUROPE are the tools that will enable the technological and economic advancement shaping the wind energy of the future", says Hanno Fecke with conviction.
Already today, nearly one in seven COMPOSITES EUROPE visitors are wind energy professionals seeking information on materials solutions, manufacturing processes and maintenance options.
