The commercial aerospace industry is poised for some exciting changes. As the industry prepares for a new round of major program launches, including a potential Boeing NMA (New Midsize Airplane), the question of where and how composites will be applied is on entire composites industry’s mind.

CW recently released a special edition, in collaboration with Additive Manufacturing and Modern Machine Shop, dedicated to the advanced materials and process that will likely play a role in Next-Gen Aerospace.

Featured Content

Topics include resin infusion of wing structures, resin transfer molding of door surrounds, advances in thermoplastic composites and more.

Check out a preview here: 


Coming soon CW will release a CW Talks podcast dedicated to the topic, offering a summary of what the editorial team learned while conducting research for the issue. Stay tuned.


  • Ceramic-matrix composites heat up

    Lightweight, hard and stable at high temperatures, CMCs are emerging from two decades of study and development into commercial applications.

  • 787 integrates new composite wing deicing system

    The composite wing leading edge on Boeing’s Dreamliner features an integrated heating element that incorporates a sprayed metal conductive layer within the laminate stack.  

  • 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. This month, CAMX Connection introduces to composites novices the fibers and resin systems commonly used in composites manufacturing.
