The recent spread of the corona virus in new countries last week forced authorities to take safety precaution. As it is spreading in major countries like China, South Korea and Italy, the board and key stakeholders of the leading international composites show in Paris decided to postponed the event scheduled on March 3rd to 5th 2020 to May 12th to 14th 2020.
For the 50th time, JEC World will gather the global composite industry, taking place at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre. The JEC World is a celebration of the most innovative composite projects worldwide. Composites are suitable for any engineering applications, such as automotive, aerospace, railway, marine, civil engineering and many more.
Composites in the aerospace industry
Throughout the years, engineers have been working on reducing weight in the aircraft in order to increase its performance. For example, in 1972 an Airbus aircraft was made of 5% of composite. In 2015, the A350 XWB aircraft was made up of 53% of composite. Similarly, the Boeing Company introduced an aircraft made up of 12% of composite in 1995. With the introduction of the 787 Dreamliner the amount of composites used increased up to 50%. Aerospace represents 15% of the global composite materials distribution. This will rise up due to the increase of demand of high-strength lightweight materials.
Why use composites?
The use of composite in manufacturing has dramatically increased over the years. Some of its benefits include:
• Unlimited shaping of design, aesthetics and flexibility
• Resistance and resilience
• Rigidity and durability
• Optimization of parts
• Multi materials
• Hybridization & assembly
