Description

Road2Composites

An Automotive and Transportation Workshop focused on Scale-up, Lightweighting and High Volume Composites Products and Processes

Fuel efficiency, design freedom, and manufacturing efficiency have been driving transportation and automotive materials and process development toward composites for years. Composites materials and processes offer many other advantages for every vehicle on the road. Join us for this two-day workshop presented by Composites One in partnership with the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI), as we present some of latest industry developments. This workshop is dedicated to demonstrating composites for both transportation (lower volume) and automotive (higher volume). Whether you make buses or pickup trucks, SUV’s or Humvee’s, race cars or sedans, we have something for you at Road2Composites!
