Just arrived in Paris today (Monday, March 26) and getting ready for the JEC show.
Primary focus will be on automation, especially Automated Fiber Placement (AFP) and compression molded parts fabrication processes.
Will also be frequenting the booths of the companies specializing in thermoplastics fabrication and looking for resin applications other than PPS, PEEK and PEI.
Last but not least, very excited about the new automated NDI project coming out of EADS Innovation Works called LUCIE. I saw posters about this project during a visit to the Nantes Technocampus back in September 2011. Hopefully Hubert Voillaume and Franck Bentouhami of EADS will provide much insight into this new capability along with its production readiness level assessment.
