MasterWorks Inc. (Taneytown, MD, US), a Hexagon Composites Co., is displaying a range of composite products from the aerospace, commercial and oil/gas industries. New this year, MasterWorks is featuring a Type IV composite overwrapped pressure vessel (COPV) developed for the aerospace industry.  This demonstrator unit has successfully passed numerous tests including cycle, vacuum cycle, burst and cleanliness verification, and is currently undergoing long-term permeation testing. Also features will be filament winding machines, fiber tensioners, resin baths, curing ovens, payout tooling, mandrel extractors, cut-off saws, pressure test systems and material handling equipment.  In the booth, a tensioning system will again be a focus as capability has increased to include tensioning on the gram scale at high-speeds.

  • Composites 101: Fibers and resins

    Compared to legacy materials like steel, aluminum, iron and titanium, composites are still coming of age, and only just now are being better understood by design and manufacturing engineers. However, composites’ physical properties — combined with unbeatable light weight — make them undeniably attractive. 

  • Taking the hand out of hand layup

    Hand layup has a long history in aerospace composites fabrication, but it's not well suited for automotive composites manufacturing, where volumes are much higher. But the discrete placement of fiber reinforcements still has value. Research is pointing toward automated hand layup that might help this process bridge the aerospace-to-automotive divide.

  • Composites recycling: Gaining traction

    Recycling of carbon fiber, glass fiber and — at last — resins, is growing as new players enter the space.
