The Closed Mold Alliance Workshop Schedule for 2018 has been announced, and Magnum Venus Products is proud to participate in this partnership!

The Closed Mold Alliance is comprised of three industry experts—Composites One, the leading supplier of composite materials in North America, along with Magnum Venus Products (MVP), the industry’s leading meter/mix equipment manufacturer with specific expertise in closed mold processes, and RTM North Technologies, one of North America’s leading closed mold tooling experts. The Alliance also works closely with IACMI, the Composites Institute throughout the year as well.

The mission of the alliance is to provide leadership, knowledge, training, and resources for the successful conversion to closed mold processes. Providing composites manufacturers with a turn-key solution is the ultimate goal of this partnership. The Closed Mold Alliance supports manufacturers from early development to project completion—through education and other resources.

2018 marks the third year of these joint workshops. Typically, each workshop is conducted in a different part of the country and is tailored to specific processes within specific trending industries. The purpose of these joint workshops is to provide continued education for manufacturers on new processes and products, as well as workforce development for future composites industry employees. Each workshop is informative and fun and takes place in a dynamic and engaging environment. This year’s schedule is as follows:
