New composites show set for Germany in September

A new international trade show for composite fiber materials and lightweight construction will be held Sept. 21-23 in Augsburg, Germany.

“Experience Composites powered by JEC Group," a new international trade show for composite fiber materials and lightweight construction, will be held Sept. 21-23 in Augsburg, Germany.

Organizers said the use of carbon and related materials in mechanical and plant engineering will play an important role at the event.

The collaborative project from Messe Augsburg, Carbon Composites e.V. and JEC Group will display composite fiber innovations and projects for mechanical and plant engineering in one of six industry display windows.

Organizers said exhibitors from the industry, research institutions and universities will depict what new materials can do in the machine and plant engineering industry, including increasing resource efficiency and development of mass production.

"This sector is a cornerstone of German industry and traditionally has also been especially strongly anchored in our region,” Experience Composites project manager Philip Häußler said in a statement.

“We want to show how composites applications and lightweight construction can provide new impetus to mechanical and plant engineering. Our exhibitors will provide live presentations of everything that is already possible and where development is headed."
