Hosted by Denis Wagner, Director, Wagner Corporation, and Non-Executive Chairman, Wagners Holding Company

Started in 2002, Wagners CFT manufacture composite fiber material for use in the civil engineering construction industry. Committed to manufacturing quality products that deliver smart outcomes for their customers, benefits include a large range of products in colors to suit aesthetic needs, full in-house design capability, pre-fabrication and on-site installation

Using a unique pull-winding process, Wagners CFT products will not rust, rot or corrode. Their unique composites combination ensures superior strength to weight ratio, cost-effective and durable solutions for civil engineers, especially when facing environmentally sensitive and challenging terrain. They are credited with manufacturing and installing the world’s first composite road bridge in a public road network and the first clip-on pedestrian walkway/cycleway onto an existing bridge.

Please join us for this exclusive tour of Wagners CFT in Toowoomba, QLD, which will be held during the 2022 Composites Conference.

Tour delegates are required to show evidence of double vaccination and wear closed toe shoes and long sleeves.

Shooting a 3D complex part using reusable silicone vacuum bags

Hosted by Martin Nikolas and Blaise Viscont – MARKY INDUSTRIES

For industrial composites manufacturer Marky Industries, 2020 is the year the company made the bold move to transform its entire production system from LRTM (Light Resin Transfer Moulding) to reusable silicone vacuum bags.

Blaise Visconti, Composite Technical Manager for Marky Industries, will infuse a complex 3D part to demonstrate improvements in the system that was showcased at the 2019 Composites Australia conference. Improvements include improved resin runner system and multiple runner junction types for building ready to go resin flow networks and lighter bags for thermal efficiencies.
