Bally Ribbon Mills (BRM, Bally, PA, US), manufacturer of specialized engineered woven fabrics, has announced its film infusion capabilities for 3-D woven joints. In the film infusion process, a frozen sheet or film of resin is infused onto the custom 3-D woven joint, saving customers the trouble of infusing the resin themselves. 

BRM’s 3-D continuous weaving process enables complex woven structures used primarily in aerospace applications, often in airframe structural components and subassemblies including stiffeners and joints. BRM uses the film infusion process to infuse a variety of resins to these complex 3-D woven shapes, allowing the 3-D woven joints to be delivered as pre-made assemblies, saving customers processing steps that require time, work and specialized machinery. The film infusion capability also allows BRM to control more steps of the 3-D woven joint assembly manufacturing process, reportedly ensuring consistent quality control.
