Great comebacks at the 9th edition of the only Italian event dedicated to the materials of the future.  An intense and exciting programme of technical and scientific conferences and seminars

February 27, 2017

Compotec, the only trade show in Italy entirely dedicated to the industry of composite materials and to their wide variety of applications, is preparing for its 9th edition, which will be held at the Exhibition Centre of CarraraFiere, in Marina di Carrara, from March 29 to 31. A great atmosphere of optimism is emerging from the more and more successful sectors related to world of Compotec.

Here are the important confirmed brands that you will find at Compotec: Vaber Industriale, Resintex, Gurit, Gazechim, ICR, MVP, Elantas, T&T Metalli e Compositi, Sirca, Sotecofoam, Finco, LB Costruzioni, Ws Marine, Nabertherm, Polycell, Specialinsert, Sia Biffignandi, 2Tecno, Chimpex, Diab, Sika, Marbo, Reichhold, PDGlassheiden, Rpm Solutions, Futech, Irop.

In the sector of raw materials, the next edition of Compotec will see the comeback of companies like Mascherpa and Airex Ag.

The use of the carbon will be another recurrent issue at Compotec thanks to the presence of operators such as the Hungarian Unicarbon and the Italian Carmon@Carbon.

Quanta will bring up again the issue of training, through the excellence of Tekno Compositi will have at its booth a prestigious and luxurious Aston Martin sport car, mainly made of carbon.

In the automobile sector also Lamborghini will be present  at the stand Selto with the powerful model HuracánSuper GT Cup by Imperiale Racing, a racing car with an engine V10 of 5,2 litres with 620 horsepower and a body entirely made of composite materials, included the aerodynamic features, for a total weigh of only 1.200 kg.

Compotec will also host new exhibitors working in other industry sectors; among them, FK Group, for the cutting of fabrics; Silac – Italian distributor of Eastman brand – in the field of resins and solvents; Maricell for Pvc panels; ZSK for machineries; Weicon for lubricants and glues, Crossfire and Iperelle with the brand Dassault Systèmes, which has a long-standing experience in  3D, always creating virtual universes of sustainable innovations.

In the 3D universe, at Compotec 2017 the future and  recurring issue of  3D printing will be discussed and developed, in collaboration with Senaf, which  will organise a technical and training conference related to the use of the 3D printing in the nautical and naval sectors and another training conference  on  additive manufacturing with the use of composite materials.

As far as  conferences are concerned, during the 9th edition of  Compotec the University of Perugia will illustrate the topic “Composites and innovative technologies for the aerospace sector”, whereas Politecnico di Torino will discuss the issue “Simulation and control (NDT) of composite elements”.

Octima, a long-time Compotec partner will discuss  “The new era of the productive process in the world of composite materials”, whereas Assocompositi, another old partner of Compotec, will deal with the topics of “Production and control of the composite materials ” and “Non-destructive method of control (CND) for the application of composites”. The purpose of the CND is to inspect, certify and value the quality of a structure without producing any fractures or breaks or any other relevant changes  of the structure.

Lastly, the Esrf (European Synchrotron Radiation Facility) of Grenoble, will host a seminar entited: “Unveil the secrets of composite materials using synchrotron X-Rays”, an appointment for scientific update on  composite materials and their features.
