They celebrated the Grand Opening of their R&D Center in Weyarn with distinguished guests such as Mr. Yu Zhong (President of Kangde Group), Mrs Ilse Aigner (Bavarian state minister of economic affairs and media, energy and technology), Mr. Mingde Shi (Ambassador of the Peoples Republic of China), Mr. Peng He (MD KDX Eurpore Composites R&D Center GmbH), Prof. Dr. Klaus Drechsler (Head of TUM's institute for carbon composites) and Mr. Georg Fritzmeier (CEO Fritzmeier Group).

CCS @Rotorcraft Asia 2017

Singapore, 19 April 2017: Dr Florian Doetzer was invited to speak at the conference "Global Vision of Composites in the Helicopter Sector", part of the Rotorcraft Asia 2017 Exhibition, organized by JEC Group in Changing Exhibition on 18-20. April 2017.

He emphasized the increased importance of weight savings for rotary wing aircraft compared to fixed wing aircraft and showed the resulting high percentage of composites usage in helicopter structures. 

CCS @NAMIC AM Summit 2017

Singapore, 6 April 2017: CCS participated with Dr. Florian Doetzer as speaker in the NAMIC AM Summit Series - Aerospace summit at Singapore Expo. 

Together with Peter Rogers from Autodesk he spoke about opportunities through integrating Additive Manufacturing and Composite technologies.

CCS and Autodesk chose this unconventional approach of doing a joint presentation, rather than separate ones to highlight the synergies between Additive Manufacturing and Composites industries. NAMIC’s AM Summit provided an excellent platform for this discussion.
