CAMX 2017 EXHIBITORS Continued CAMX 2018 23 MARKET GROWTH CATEGORY ACMA's Awards for Composites Excellence (ACE), a prestigious composites industry competition, recognizes outstanding achievement and innovation in technology, manufacturing, and product development. Congratulations to all the 2018 finalists! The full list and description of finalists is available in the app and on-site at the ACE Awards pavilion in the back of aisles E-G in the Exhibit Hall. Join fellow industry peers in the ACE Awards Pavilion in the Exhibit Hall on Tuesday, October 16 at 2:00 PM to celebrate the innovative companies that are shaping composites as the 2018 ACE winners are revealed and receive their awards. Sponsored by DESIGN CATEGORY MANUFACTURING CATEGORY 26 TH ANNUAL AWARDS FOR COMPOSITES EXCELLENCE (ACE) Innovation in Green Composites Design Award This award is presented to the composites product that best exemplifies innovation that lowers/minimizes the environmental footprint or offers an attractive life cycle assessment (LCA) of the product. The product design should demonstrate application of new or innovative materials, or it should apply a unique design that contributes to efficient manufacturing, delivery, installation and in-service performance leading to energy savings. Equipment and Tooling Innovation Award This award is presented to the equipment, tooling, production aid, or software that is designed to improve manufacturing production, environmental sustainability, or product quality and performance in composites manufacturing. The entry must demonstrate improvement or efficiency in the manufacturing of a specific end-use composites product. Infinite Possibility Award This award is presented to the composites product that demonstrates the potential to significantly increase the use of composites in existing markets or generate the greatest impact to open new and emerging markets for composites. This product exemplifies innovation, creativity, and commercialization leading to market growth. Most Creative Application Award This award is presented to the composites product that showcases composites use in a unique, new application or uses composites' attributes in an imaginative, innovative, or artistic way. The composites product should show evidence of significantly replacing traditional materials, or show innovative use or refinement of existing composites materials that impacts current or new markets. Candidate product entries for this award include both production and prototype/research and development. Materials and Process Innovation Award This award is presented for a material or process that best contributes to efficient manufacturing and product sustainability. The entries should demonstrate use of innovative materials, production techniques or methods that result in better quality, reduced production costs, increased production rates and volume, or reduced life cycle costs. The entry must demonstrate its application in the manufacturing of a specific, end-use composites product.
