Current test method development shows potential for the composite wedge test, a standardized durability-based test for adhesively bonded composites.
Replacing aluminum, a fiberglass/phenolic module reduces mass and NVH in a prototype structure and speeds assembly line installation.
Startup WEAV3D Inc.’s technology produces highly tunable, woven lattice reinforcements for cost-effective, high-volume automotive composites and precast concrete applications.

9T Labs’ deposition process places continuous carbon fiber only where necessary to save material, reduce waste, and more precisely control the structure of preformed composites.
Practical solutions for process-related challenges in LATW, which has great potential for pressure vessels and storage tanks.
Thermal Sensor Layer Automation system uses a non-contact temperature sensor for continuous temperature data, ensuring precise fusion between large-scale thermoplastic printed layers.
The Composites Fabricating Index set a new multi-year high for the month of February. Fabricators should expect material prices to remain highly volatile the longer that supply chains remain disrupted.
