Composites One Demos Latest Processes Jeff Sloan, Editor-in-Chief CompositesWorld Composites One (Arlington Heights, Illinois) and the Closed Mold Alliance, along with more than 20 industry and educational partners, is once again demon- strating the latest composites processes and sharing practical tips for working smarter, faster and more efficiently. "What's new at this year's event is the amount of compos- ites knowledge that attendees can receive in a limited amount of time," says Marcy Offner, director of marketing communica- tions at Composites One. "Each demo will be boiled down into a succinct, dynamic watch-and-learn presentation with prac- tical tips and takeaways that attendees can then share with their employees and co-workers." Each presentation (Booth K32) is focused on processes and products used in a key market segment such as marine, architectural, corrosion, oil and gas, aerospace, infrastructure and automotive/ transportation. Joining the presenters at this year's event are representatives from the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI), Davis Technology – Salt Lake City, and Daytona State College. Together with Composites One, the Closed Mold Alliance and their industry part- ners, they possess more than 70 years of combined composites expertise that attendees can draw upon, including infor- mation on industry education and manu- facturing efficiencies aimed at keeping employees challenged in their jobs and workforce development. Demos began yesterday and will be repeated today at CAMX, giving attendees multiple opportunities to see what interests them. ursday will be an Open House for live Q&A with technical teams. Many demos will feature systems from Magnum Venus Products (MVP) and tooling from RTM North Ltd. With Composites One, both MVP and RTM North are founding members of the Closed Mold Alliance – a resource dedi- cated to helping manufacturers success- fully convert to closed mold and advanced processes. Composites One and Closed Mold Alliance Demo Zone supplier partners include 3A Composites, Airtech Advanced Materials Group, AOC, Ashland, BYK, Chem-Trend, Chomarat, Huntsman, Lantor, Magnum Venus Products, N12 Technologies, Owens Corning, Polynt Composites USA Inc., PolyOne, RTM North Ltd., SikaAxson, SWORL (a divi- sion of Prairie Technology Group Inc.), United Initiators Inc., Vectorply and CompositesWorld.
