The EPSRC Future Composites Manufacturing Research Hub (CIMComp), is pleased to announce its participation in JEC World 2024, taking place from the 5th – 7th March in Paris. The Hub will showcase its cutting-edge advancements in composite manufacturing, with a focus on the impactful results of its Synergy Projects and ongoing Core Projects and can be found in Hall 6, on Stand T62 as part of the Composites UK pavilion.


This year, CIMComp takes centre stage at JEC World to share the culmination of its dedicated research. The final outcomes of three Core Projects and progress updates from the latest Synergy Projects will be a key highlight. These collaborations bring together the expertise of leading academics and researchers from 16 UK universities, working together with industry partners to tackle critical challenges in composite manufacturing.


Dr. Yang Chen, CIMComp’s Innovation Fellow from the University of Bath, will present his groundbreaking research on textile fabric permeability variability in liquid moulding. His project aims to develop advanced numerical methods for predicting fabric permeability, ultimately leading to reduced manufacturing costs and enhanced product performance. The findings will be integral to the Hub’s upcoming Annual Report, set for publication in May.


CIMComp’s research aligns with five key priority areas identified in collaboration with industry partners and the Composites Leadership Forum:


  • High-rate deposition and rapid processing technologies
  • Design for manufacture via validated simulation
  • Manufacturing for multifunctional composites and integrated structures
  • Inspection and in-process evaluation
  • Recycling and re-use


These priorities ensure that CIMComp’s research directly addresses the evolving needs of the composite industry, driving impactful solutions and fostering continued advancement.
