SHOWdaily CAMX 2018 8 TUESDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2018 / DALLAS, TEXAS #CAMX18 The premier source of technical information for the Materials & Processes (M&P) community. BACK FOR 2018 SAMPE HONORS DISPLAY View the SAMPE Honors display at booth BB63, next to the SAMPE Booth AA63, in the Exhibit Hall. We are pleased to showcase our 2018 Awards recipients with a special exhibit highlighting their career accomplishments and industry contributions. VISIT THE SAMPE BOOTH Composites 101: Today's tutorials highlight AI, processing and formulating By Sara Black, Senior Editor CompositesWorld While CAMX generally holds its educa- tional tutorial sessions on Monday before the show opens, this year a second slate of sessions will be held today. ree inter- esting sessions are available from 2-5 p.m. Note that access to each three-hour session must be purchased separately at the regis- tration desk, up until 2 p.m. Today's tutorials include: • Entering the Digital Factory Era: inking AI, Implementing AI—D224, by Avner Ben-Bassat, Plataine: As Industrial IoT and Arti„cial Intelligence (AI) technol- ogies are becoming increasingly central to the world of advanced manufacturing, there is a growing interest in their potential impact on aerospace and composites manu- facturing. is tutorial will „rst introduce and discuss key elements of these tech- nologies, and then dig deeper into various techniques of leveraging them in compos- ites production. e talk will involve real- life examples, including implementation challenges and resulting bene„ts. • Manufacturing Composites: Processing & Getting the Part You Designed—D220, by Ronda Coguill, Montana Tech & Brianna Clark, Montana Tech. Designing a struc- tural composite is only the „rst step in actually manufacturing and processing to then obtaining the part design engineers create. is tutorial covers the composite material systems and the process selection needed to optimize the part one desires to build in production. Proper material selection, manufacturing process selection and implementation of manufacturing plans will be covered as well as produc- tion processes to help ensure no surprises when the „nal structural composite part is removed from the tooling, mold or die. • Epoxy Resin Chemistry: e Science and Art of formulating Epoxy Resin Systems—D222, by Roger Tietze, PART Consulting. Epoxies have character- istics that provide properties suitable for a variety of purposes, which can be explained by the chemistry of the epoxide functional group as well as the curing reaction with hardeners. is overview of epoxies will present the chemistry, manu- facturing, application and marketing of the epoxy class of thermosetting materials. Automated layup machinery serves defense, commercial aerospace Accudyne Systems (Newark, DE, US) is featuring its line of of customized automation equipment for producing intermediary materials, preforms and finished parts. Equipment developed by Accudyne includes automated fiber placement machines, flat charge laminators, stringer formers, cross-ply laminators, de-bulking systems, noodle formers, pick-and-place laminators, kitting machines, bladder wrappers and robotic tool management.
