Carbon fibre composites has been introduced in low quantities in the body of exclusive cars or in larger quantities in semi-structural applications. High cost, low production capacity and technical challenges on how to integrate composite components with a metal body has slowed down the introduction of carbon fibre composites in automotive industry. By using a multi-material strategy carbon fibre composites can be introduced in large scale in automotive applications.
Dr.-Ing. Andreas De Palmenaer | Head of research group carbon fibre of Institut für Textiltechnik der RWTH Aachen University
Derek Buckmaster | Director of Carbon Nexus
Additive manufacturing (popularly known as “3D printing”) has become widely accepted for the rapid prototyping of relatively small components. This presentation will review the capabilities of the technology and identify the challenges to be met for it to be truly ready for high-volume production of structural composite products.

It’s a fact that such things, whilst being a hot topic, usually fizzle out due to lack of action, if not interest.
Standardisation on materials is a scary subject for the carbon fibre producers, if all materials meet the same criteria the only differential is price….which is the bit that worries the manufacturers most.
Chaired by: John Davidson MSc, Product Director – Oxidation & Carbonisation, Cygnet Texkimp – UK
Featuring by: Corebon AB and GP Marketing Consulting Sas
Carbon fibre properties and new fabric range of products
Example of production processes-related costs-saving (RTM, Autoclave, infusion, press moulding, and more)
Yuri Svistunov | CEO deputy and Chief Technical Officer of UMATEX
Oxidation part of the most world operated carbon fiber lines is the most energy consuming and dangerous areas of any carbon fiber plant. The scientific and engineering focus to make it more efficient and safe is something very often studied and published in the specific papers. This presentation gives the review on the approach which was theoretically engineered and realized on practice on the existing carbon fiber line with the annual capacity up to 1500 metric tons. The paper will include:
Dr. Erik Frank | Head of Carbon Fiber Development of German Institutes of Textile and Fiber Research Denkendorf
Mikael Nordlander | Head of Industry Decarbonisation R&D Portfolio, Industry Decarbonisation of Vattenfall AB
Featuring by: Cygnet Texkimp, CarbConsult, Unamex Group, and Lux Research
Dr.-Ing. Andreas De Palmenaer, Head of research group carbon fibre, Institut für Textiltechnik der RWTH Aachen University
