Henniker to showcase plasma treatment at the 16th Annual Composites Conference

We will be joining delegates and fellow exhibitors from around the UK for the 16th Annual Composites conference at the University of Manchester on the 11th May 2016. The conference looks at the opportunities and challenges faced by the UK composites industry as well as focusing on developing and supporting a UK supply chain.

As the UK’s leading manufacturer of plasma treatment equipment & processes, Henniker have been making significant contributions to the application of plasma technology in UK composites manufacture and will be on-hand to discuss  the results of our 3 year involvement in UK’s Advanced Manufacturing Supply Chain Initiative (AMSCI). If you would like to learn about plasma treatment of composites please visit us in the exhibition area on 11th May or if you cannot attend feel free to contact us to discuss your requirements.
