Composites Manufacturing

The aerospace industry is one of the largest markets and of great importance to the composites industry. Commercial and defense aerospace manufacturers are using composites and advanced materials to enable improvements in cost and performance.

SME is joining its Composites Manufacturing program to the AeroDef Manufacturing Conference and Exposition, the nation’s leading annual aerospace manufacturing event. Come and experience how aerospace companies are finding new ways to apply, machine, finish and automate composite processes. Technical sessions will focus on advanced manufacturing and supporting technologies. Topics may include but are not limited to:

  • Modeling/Simulation
  • Intelligent Manufacturing
  • Advancing processes such as out of autoclave, thermoplastic composites, additive, automation, etc.
  • Non-Destructive Inspection
  • Knowledge Management
  • Bonding and Assembly
  • Technology Demonstrations
