COLUMBUS Brokerage Event: "Knowledge from research on Lightweight materials and advanced joining techniques for the maritime industry" hosted by MDCE
22 Jun 2017 11:00 am - 3:45 pm
Center of Maritime Technologies e.V.(CMT) in cooperation with Maritime Development Center (MDC), TINV and the Danish Society for Naval Architecture and Marine Engeneering Foundation (DSNAME) invites you to a workshop on constructing technology within the maritime industry. The aim of the workshop is to gain knowledge and benefit from research. We also desire to put a spotlight on the further development of these technologies. What does it mean for the upcoming new-buildings?
By participating, you get firsthand knowledge, when our two speakers share their perspective of the subjects. Afterwards, we will discuss the presented material, seeking a total coverage of the given insight. We invite you to contribute with your questions and comments, in order to create a lively debate with a great outcome.
Topics to be addressed:
- Lightweight Material (Fibre reinforced plastics) for maritime applications (SOLAS Vessels and OFFSHORE)
- Joining techniques for multi-material structures (Bonding) and steel structures for special purposes (Friction Stir Welding)
Lightweight material and advanced joining techniques are in many industrial applications state of the art. However, in maritime the application of above-mentioned technologies has only touched the offshore sector as well as commercial shipping/shipbuilding. This workshop will give an end-user based view on the technologies, their benefits, risks and the next steps towards a wider application.
The participants will get an overview about the technologies including pros, cons and bottlenecks. In the discussion and Q&A slot, we are happy to receive feedback from the end-users on their expectations, needs and requirements.
The workshop will contribute to the next research projects. The overall aim is to offer a wider variety of designs and materials to boost the economic and ecologic impact (in a positive way, off course).
