TIME: 3pm (CET - Paris Time) / 9am ET
Composite structures are experiencing rapidly emerging opportunities.
Automakers strive to reach their goals for extending the range of electrified and traditional vehicles without sacrificing strength, stiffness, or performance. The aviation industry is seeing an increased need for larger volume production of components used throughout the aircraft. Moreover, if the buzz about personal airborne mobility and autonomous air logistics are not just fads, they will stress previous methods as production volumes shift closer to automotive numbers than aero numbers.
Join us as we discuss the challenges facing the product and process engineering for higher volume composite parts. We will be addressing parts and components ranging from large structures to smaller components, from low production volumes to more mass-produced objects.
Topics we’ll explore:
- When part design and materials design intersect
- Composites value stream and life cycle
- Validating product performance with manufacturing intent
- Trends and industry solutions
Examples of how top companies from Automotive, Aerospace, and Marine are finding success with composites simulation tools.
