JEC to showcase composite materials at Mondial.Tech
JEC Group will showcase the latest composite materials and processes for automotive sector and mobility at Mondial.Tech - a new international B to B event dedicated to technological innovations for automobiles and tomorrow’s mobility, developing links between the automotive industry’s value chain and its existing and future technologies suppliers worldwide.
The event will be held during the five-day Paris Motor Show which is slated to begin on October 2.
“For over 50 years, composite materials have been contributing to the development of vehicles, offering many possibilities in terms of design, durability and light-weighting. Today, composite materials and their processes are becoming even more relevant in the context of increasingly diverse and fast-evolving mobility. With the development of new energy sources, composite materials offer additional benefits, particularly for the battery integration in the electric and hybrid vehicles, as well as for the production of tanks for hydrogen-powered vehicles,” says Eric Pierrejean, CEO of JEC Group.
With its “Composite Mobility” slogan, JEC Group will be showcasing innovations and applications by key players in the composites industry and their experts, some of whom have received one of the prestigious JEC Innovation Awards. As they become increasingly better integrated, from the initial vehicle development process through to production, composites provide designers and engineers with greater flexibility when developing new vehicles and components.
As witnessed by Grahame Burrow, president of Magna Exteriors: “Thanks to composites, we are able to take a clean-sheet approach with design, materials and processing, collaborate with the customer and within our product groups, and deliver a solution with the potential to really move the needle in terms of aggressive light-weighting without sacrificing styling or performance.”
Pierrejean adds that “recent examples from leading automotive manufacturers show that bonding techniques and the combination of metal and composite materials have provided new opportunities, offering the right choice of material for the right application”. Some iconic examples of these technologies will be presented by JEC at MONDIAL.TECH.
Publisher of the composites industry’s leading magazine - JEC Composites Magazine -, JEC Group will also be presenting its latest issue, which focuses on the automotive industry and features a recent study from Deloitte for JEC Group on the existing and future use of composites in the automotive sector.
