PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwire - Nov 5, 2012) - AIRTEC 2012 will host on November 6
thought-leadership roundtable on advanced materials for the
sector, chaired by Bruno Chenal, Constellium Director for
Development. The panel will bring together representatives from the
chain to understand the role of materials in delivering current and
requirements in terms of safety, lightness, fuel
cost-effectiveness and increasing build rates.
The debate will also focus on customers' expectations and new
impacting the development of advanced materials, such as
regulations, standardization of processes or better
production cycles within the supply chain. While 2030 appear to be
target date for the entry into service of the next new short range
(NSR), another question to be raised at this roundtable is the
approach to innovation in order to ensure both engineering of
solutions and on-time delivery.
"At Constellium, we have a focussed and strong innovation agenda
know that advanced materials are enablers for the entire value
whether it comes to achieving innovative design concepts or
manufacturing steps to reduce costs," said Bruno Chenal.
