OMAX Corp. (Kent, WA, US) is highlighting the benefits and advantages of its abrasive waterjets to machine composites and advanced other materials. OMAX personnel are explaining how the process of abrasive waterjet machining works with composite materials, with emphasis on the fact that waterjet cutting creates no heat-affected zone (HAZ), no change to  material properties, and how the small kerf size allows for close nesting of parts to maximize material use. Programming software demonstrations are also being presented. Booth E48.

  • Composites recycling becomes a necessity

    Boeing and Airbus each is generating as much as a 1 million lb of cured and uncured carbon fiber prepreg waste each year from 787 and A350 XWB production. If you include the entire supply chain for these planes, the total is closer to 4 million lb/year. And with the automotive industry poised to consume (and waste) more carbon fiber than ever, recycling of composite materials has become an absolute necessity. The technology is there, but the markets are not. Yet.
