Workshop 10: Go from an Average Composite Manufacturer to Manufacturing Advanced Composites with CCG
Would you like to re-engineer your composites, but dont have an engineer on staff? Have you been designing by instinct, but know you can make lighter, better-performing products? Are you looking to change your production process, but haven’t found the right person to hire to make those changes, or found a person you can trust to do it? Would you like to convert to infusion, but fear throwing away parts? Wish you could predict how your infused part will fill without risking all that time, labor, and material? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this seminar is for you. Consider leasing an engineer, process specialist, or infusion engineer on a short-term basis versus committing to hiring a full-time staffer. Employing a consulting group that has years of experience in composites and engineering and years of success will ensure your transition from average composite manufacturer to manufacturer of advanced composites, and can save time and money. Composites Consulting Group offers these services and more. We will show case studies demonstrating what we’ve done with customers in composites engineering, process training, and infusion simulation projects. We will look at industrial, marine, and recreational projects. Q&A time will allow discussion of your project.
