Natural-fibre-reinforced plastics are currently used massively in the automotive industry for the production of lightweight, stiff interior panels. Despite advantages such as low density, low price and good mechanical properties, natural fibres also have a number of drawbacks such as naturally conditioned inhomogeneity, fogging and odour, and fluctuating prices. This limits their use in special applications. In addition to common natural fibres like flax or hemp, significantly cleaner and finer cellulosic short fibres (paper-grade pulp) can also be used. They have considerable advantages compared to the existing property deficits of natural-fibre composites. During the JEC Show, semi-finished parts using nonwovens and composites made of cellulosic short fibres are shown at the TITK booth (Education and Skills Village). www.titk.de

AKPA Chemicals specializes in the production of organic peroxides, initiators and accelerators for the composite and plastics industries. At JEC Composites Paris 2011, the AKPA® booth will exhibit the company’s full range of products for various sectors, with a focus on the EFOX® series of polymerization initiators for petrochemical plants. According to AKPA General Manager Kemal Darcan, “JEC Composites is a very important meeting point and opportunity where most international companies can meet face to face with key decision makers from leading chemical companies. The exhibition is getting more global every year with the increasing number of foreign participants, and getting the participation of the chemical sector’s different branches.”

Bishop GmbH offers advanced capabilities in non-linear finite-element analysis of composite structures, more particularly impact, delamination and crack propagation investigations. These analyses are often conducted through the creation of virtual test rigs in order to provide static proof and verification of complex primary structures. In this field of expertise, Bishop GmbH is one of the leading companies for multi-axial loaded structural analysis such as compression-shear or bidirectional tension-shear loaded specimens. The company has also developed analytical methods for bonded and bolted composite joints. Bishop GmbH enhances the technological understanding and capability of its customers through research & development projects. Recent projects include the replacement of existing metallic designs with composite structures for use in aerospace applications. The intended goals were weight reduction and reduced maintenance costs for customers, as well as the design and development of advanced crashworthy helicopter structures. www.bishop-gmbh.com

Robotmaster® offers a powerful software solution for programming industrial robots to perform tasks. This integrated robot programming, simulation and program generation solution uses industry-proven CAD/CAM tools. Optimized and error-free trajectory programming for tasks such as trimming, 3D machining, deburring, polishing, dispensing, grinding and painting can be generated in the fraction of the time it takes to program these same tasks today. Expanding on an already powerful programming solution, Robotmaster X5 sets a new standard for programming robots with the same ease and functionality as CNC milling machines. Robotmaster® seamlessly integrates robot programming, simulation and program generation inside Mastercam®’s industry-proven CAD/CAM platform. Robotmaster X5 provides innovative new tools to effortlessly optimize robot programs, producing error-free robot paths, avoiding singularity zones and robot/tool/workpiece collisions, working around joint and reach limitations, and optimizing tool orientations for smooth transitions along the entire trajectory. Robotmaster offers a unique and powerful programming solution for the manufacture of parts using industrial robotic solutions (combined with external rails or rotary tables). The overall solution will help drive down the manufacturing costs, by allowing users to take advantage of the flexibility offered by robots, and also to program them off-line with superior ease, without the need to teach any points. www.robotmaster.com
