Video: Manufacturing the Future With Composites
CAMX 2018 showcased a video giving attendees a glimpse of the future through the eyes of the composites industry and illustrating the way advanced materials are being used to improve our lives.
One of the highlights from CAMX 2018 was a video that gave attendees a glimpse of the future through the eyes of the composites industry. It gives a great overview of how composites have the potential to continue improving our lives in so many areas from improving aging infrastructure to advancing transportation to renewable energy to aerospace. The video features Dave Cooper, VP, Glass Reinforcements at Owens Corning (Toledo, OH, US) and Leon Garoufalis, president & COO at Composites One (Arlington Heights, IL, US) discussing composites applications, innovations, sustainability, growth and the future of the industry.
Biomimicry evolves into a systematic design process for optimizing efficient, lightweight structures.
Fibers used to reinforce composites are supplied directly by fiber manufacturers and indirectly by converters in a number of different forms, which vary depending on the application. Here's a guide to what's available.
The fabrication and installation of 700+ composite panels has a backstory of detailed design and careful quality assurance.
