Watch Closed Molding Demos – LIVE – at CAMX 2023, Booth W18

September 7, 2023 ~

Watch + Listen + Learn = Results. Only from Composites One and the Closed Mold Alliance

Once again, Composites One and the Closed Mold Alliance, along with 15 industry partners, will take center stage when they present the latest advancements in Vacuum Infusion, Reusable Bag Molding, Light RTM, and other technologies – LIVE – in Booth W18 during CAMX 2023 in Atlanta, GA, October 31 – November 2. The demonstrations will take place inside a large, enclosed staging area, so that composites manufacturers and other attendees have a clear but safe view of processes.

“Our demos are short, easy to understand and provide enough information about a specific process so that manufacturers can decide if they are interested in learning for their operation,” said Marcy Offner, Director of Marketing Communications, Composites One. “They will also be filled with tips and tricks that the manufacturer can share with their co-workers at home.”

At the event, CAMX attendees will see closed molding processes used to build real-world parts for the marine, aerospace, corrosion, automotive, and other key markets. Several demos feature the Aerovac Composites One line of vacuum bagging and process materials.

Running continuously on October 31 – November 2, demos include:

• Closed Mold Three Ways – Watch as the same part is built three different ways using Reusable Bag Molding, Light RTM, and Vacuum Infusion featuring Aerovac Process Materials

• Aerospace demos using different materials and techniques to improve processing efficiency

• Closed Mold tooling demos featuring Vacuum Infusion and Aerovac Process Materials

• An innovative technology demo featuring Fast Flow Hybrid Light RTM by MVP

• Kitting efficiencies for vacuum infusion and advanced processing ideal for Aerospace, Wind Energy, Marine and other industrial markets

• Light RTM for corrosion-related industries

• Presentations on OptiSpray Pro from Owens Corning, 3M dustless sanding, and AI automation

• Supplier spotlights and videos to round out each day

Be sure to bring your safety glasses because the Demo area opens to CAMX attendees on November 2, allowing visitors to see finished parts, talk to technical experts, and interact with Team Members.

“Our demos would not be possible without the support of our Closed Mold Alliance partners,” said Offner. They include 3A Composites Core Materials, 3M, Aerovac Composites One, AOC, A&P Technology, Chem-Trend, Chomarat, Magnum Venus Products, Owens Corning, Polynt, Polytek/Custom Polymer Design (CPD), RTM North Ltd., United Initiators Inc and Vectorply Corporation, along with Composites Manufacturing and CompositesWorld, the event’s media sponsors.
