Glass and carbon fibre reinforced plastics are in demand when lightweight and forward-looking solutions are called for. This trend towards lightweight construction is currently one of the strongest drivers for the composites industry. Just as strong are the impulses generated by the composites sector itself: the major technological advances in the manufacturing and processing chain enables this sector of industry to increasingly automate and shorten manufacturing processes. Both developments dominated this year’s edition of 13nd edition of Composites Europe 2018. Event organiser Reed Exhibitions registered 365 exhibitors from 30 nations, 8,148 visitors from 71 countries.

Kuraray will present its own racing kart and racing tyres based on ­Kuraray Liquid Rubber.

Kuraray will be presenting new bio-based Liquid Farnesene Rubber grades, as well as Kuraray Liquid Rubber (K-LR) products for enhanced compound processing. Liquid rubber derived from isoprene, butadiene, styrene and butadiene or the newly developed bio-based monomer Farnesene are widely used as high molecular weight, co-vulcanisable plasticisers. In rubber manufacturing, improvements in processing and physical properties can be achieved. Liquid rubbers are produced and used corresponding to their “solid” counter types. Therefore advantages can be demonstrated beyond a pure plasticising effect.

Dr. Boy GmbH & Co. KG announced that it will be exhibiting at K 2016 with the largest number of injection moulding machines so far. The printing of 3D mould inserts and their use on a Boy 25 E within a short time will be demonstrated at the show. Different mould inserts with different geometrical parts will be printed. According to the company, this shows the advantage of this 3D technology – very different parts can be injection moulded on the Boy 25 E within a very short period of time. The tool changing system for accommodating the 3D printed mould inserts, which was previously only used on the Boy XS, is now also available for the larger Boy 25 E and Boy 35 E.
