Cevotec Starts Cooperation to Serve the Asian Market
Platform for Developers and Users of Composite Technologies
Bringing together representatives of all stages of the composites value chain, including material, software, equipment, process technologies, as well as manufacturing and product development, the Composite Application Center (CAC) will provide a platform for developers and users of composite technologies focusing on customer trials, prototyping, pilot manufacturing, maintenance training and support services. Product companies can leverage on CAC’s combined expertise and facilities to reduce initial investments and risk for composite related product design and manufacturing. Manufacturers will be able to utilize CAC’s support to build or expand their composite manufacturing capabilities.
“CAC offers a great opportunity to introduce our composite 4.0 technology to the Asian market”, states Thorsten Groene, Managing Director of Cevotec GmbH. “As a truly innovative automation solution Fiber Patch Placement has the potential to revolutionize the Asian composites industry, that is still dominated by manual fiber lay-up”, Groene is convinced. Cevotec’s CAE software platform Artist Studio in combination with the flexible Samba Series lay-up system offer a continuous production chain from CAD to final laminate, enabling Asian manufacturers to jumpstart design and prototype production with the support of the Composite Application Center.
The ability to cover end-to-end solutions is reflected in the synergetic setup of the launch partners. That is why the Composite Application Center will closely collaborate with other international leaders in composites research, to tap into the latest technologies and to create best of industry solutions. By working closely with regional education and training centers CAC will support a sustainable talent pool and skilled workforce.
Founded at the Germany-Singapore Business Forum at Hannover Fair, the group, spearheaded by Composite Cluster Singapore, currently consists of ten companies and two research entities. CAC started officially its operation on May 1, 2018 and will ramp-up activities and capabilities throughout this year. Additional companies are also slated to join in later this year.
