JEC: it is the place to be!

Welcome to the JEC World show edition of Composites in Manufacturing magazine. Held at Paris-Nord Villepinte on 5-7 March, read all about it in our exclusive show preview starting on page 30.

JEC World continues to build on its standing as the major international meeting place for composite manufacturing-related companies. Increasingly more manufacturing industry supply chains want a piece of the global composites manufacturing action, and why not? Hardly a JEC event passes by without a new, productionised lightweight composite innovation replacing its heavier traditional metallic component counterpart.

This month’s issue features a heavy manufacturing bias as we hear from CNC machine tool specialists, Biesse, Breton, CMS and Thermwood. Whether it’s milling, drilling, near-net shaping, additive manufacturing or patternmaking, these guys have got it covered.

Our show issue also features two companies celebrating anniversaries in the composites sector. DK Holdings will be at JEC World raising a toast in celebration of its 65 years of precision diamond tooling manufacturing, whilst CODEM Composites discusses its 15th anniversary celebrations and the rebranding it will be using to support this exciting milestone.

Elsewhere in this issue, I catch up with the Leicestershire-based Patterns & Moulds to hear more about the progress the company is making in getting its new Breton Raptor 5-axis CNC machining centre up and running.

Finally, there’s exciting news from The University of Sheffield AMRC Training Centre who recently announced it will become the first training provider in South Yorkshire to deliver a new composites apprenticeship. Personally, I would love to get some practical, hands-on composites training as it would help grow my knowledge of the processes used in this ever-evolving industry.

Enjoy reading our action-packed JEC World show edition, and I look forward to meeting you in Paris.
