This presentation will cover developments in the welding of aluminium, titanium and nickel alloys for airframe and aircraft engine components by arc, laser, electron beam (EB) and friction-based processes. The manufacture of additives for laser welds will be covered in the talk, as will techniques for the joining of composite materials, and developments in non-destructive inspection. Finally, a new development on the metallic coating of composite materials for lightning strike protection and thermal management will be shown.

The talk will be followed by a discussion and buffet.
