Carbures has closed the third edition of Aerospace & Defense Meetings, ADM 2016, which is the most important trade fair for the aviation industry in Spain, with more than 50 meetings with different companies in the sector where we had the chance to present our industrial developments. The event took place at the Conference and Exhibition Centre in Seville on the 10th, 11th, and 12th of May. Manufacturing, Engineering and Systems managers from Carbures participated in several debates on the future of the sector, in which composite materials keep gaining prestige in aircraft manufacturing processes.
Rainy days are equivalent to traffic jams in major cities not only in Spain but also globally. This causes very high pollution peaks. But the car industry is evolving towards less polluting vehicles.
The diesel engine crisis has shown that the way to making more sustainable cars has no longer to do with the engine but with the vehicle’s structure. The revolution of carbon fiber in the mobility industry will reduce pollution levels in cities independently of traffic jams.
The materials with which the vehicle parts are constructed have an impact on the speed and the degree of contamination. This is why companies like Carbures are committed to innovation in manufacturing cars and airplanes and have developed their own technology based on carbon fiber, which is 4.5 times lighter and up to three times stronger and more flexible than steel, with which large parts for aircrafts, cars and other vehicles are produced. This way, means of transport are lighter, more efficient and less polluting, reach higher speeds and use less fuel.
Carbures will take part in the Aerospace and Defense Meetings (ADM) 2016 throughout the whole week. This professional event, which takes place in Seville and is organized by Extenda (Regional Government of Andalusia), celebrates its third edition and counts with the participation of 464 aerospace and defense companies from 28 countries. Carbures is at stand 17, where we show our technology and our ability to produce aircraft parts in composites (such as carbon fiber). In addition to multiple conferences, roundtables and workshops, there are more than 8.000 business-to-business meetings scheduled for this week. Some of the most prominent companies that will attend the ADM this year are Airbus (which is also a sponsor of this event), Alestis, Boeing, Bombardier and Embraer.
