About the Institute

King Mongkut’s University of Technology North Bangkok (KMUTNB) is a leading technological university in Thailand. The predecessor of KMUTNB, called Thai-German Technical School, was established as a partnership between the Federal Republic of Germany and Thai Governments in 1959. Since then, the institutions follow German standards and higher education structure. After half century of transformation, the university consists of three main campuses, which cover over 200 hectares of land. They are located in Thailand’s capital Bangkok, famous for its vibrant cultural life; Prachinburi, a small city in northeast Thailand; and Rayong, a town located in the heart of the Thai agricultural and industrial realm.

With a focus on engineering and applied sciences, the university strives to encourage innovation in science and its application in industry. The institute is organised in 12 faculties including the faculty of engineering, the faculty of technical education, the college of industrial Technology and the faculty of applied science. Students have the chance to pursue a variety of degrees at all educational levels from bachelor’s, master’s to doctorate. All programmes are taught in English, which makes the university easily accessible for foreign students.

About the Symposium

The AMPM’24 symposium is organized by the Natural Composites Research Group (NCR) of KMUTNB, which aims to bring together experts and innovators to explore cutting-edge technologies and methodologies. We are thrilled to announce that the symposium will take place over a 24-hour duration on May 24, 2024, adding a distinctive element to this event. The symposium includes keynote lectures by an array of eminent speakers from reputed international organizations and institutions. This symposium will serve as a platform for sharing insights and fostering collaborations in the dynamic domain of polymeric material manufacturing.

About NCR Lab

Natural Composite Research (NCR) Group Lab was established under the Department of Materials and Production Engineering, The Sirindhorn International Thai-German Graduate School of Engineering, King Mongkut’s University of Technology North Bangkok, Thailand.

The more profound environmental concern due to pollution caused by synthetic materials has increased the need for research on eco-friendly materials to replace synthetic ones in all possible applications. NCR lab’s prime focus is on applied research related to developing and characterizing natural fibers and their composites, polymeric materials, polymer blends, rubber technology, and bio-based materials for lightweight structures and engineering applications. NCR lab is equipped with state-of-the-art polymer processing instruments like single/twin screw extruders, filament winders, internal mixers, grinders, ball mills, blenders, automated compression molding, injection molding, vacuum infusion, autoclave, and 3D printers (FDM, laser, and resin). NCR lab members are actively involved in developing sustainable, eco-friendly products by efficiently utilizing natural resources that can lower the harmful impact on the environment and thus ensures a green environment.

Apart from composite development, the lab has testing facilities to study the developed composite’s mechanical, thermal, visco-elastic, and durability behavior. Lab members of NCR work on exploring possible solutions for creating sustainable, eco-friendly materials for industries to minimize and replace synthetic materials; based on this research, many industrial, and academic collaboration projects are being currently done. NCR lab also focuses on component development, especially for automotive and railway applications, by effectively using natural fibers obtained from plants. NCR lab works on emerging technologies like 3D printing thermoplastic and thermosets using natural-based materials for contributing technologies to scientific society. Additionally, NCR lab is conducting research to analyze real-time environmental impacts like UV, moisture, varied pH, and temperatures to study the behavior of developed materials. The mission of the NCR lab is to advance knowledge in the areas of sustainable composite materials design, analysis, and fabrication, as well as structural and semi-structural design and development. This laboratory is focused to work with other groups on collaborative projects and extend support for technology transfers to private and public sectors.
