Concordia Fibers (Coventry, RI, US) showed CAMX visitors its engineered yarns, which are optimized and structured for specific customer applications. On display were its commingled yarns, formed by spreading unsized carbon tows and unsized engineering thermoplastic fiber yarns, combining the two together, then regathering the yarn to form a new, commingled yarn, without damaging the filaments. The commingled material is ideal for direct, rapid molding of complex, deep-draw parts that more “boardy” thermoplastic prepregs can’t conform to. Concordia is actively involved in producing carbon fibers with highly controlled twist for Albany Engineered Composites (Rochester, NH, US), who uses the fiber in its 3D woven preforms for the LEAP commercial jet engine manufactured by Safran.
