CAMX 2019: Exhibit previews
CompositesWorld polled CAMX 2019 exhibitors and asked them to share details about the products, services and technologies that they will feature in their booth. Below is what we received.
CAMX is coming up soon, Sept. 23-36 in Anaheim, Calif. It is North America’s largest composites trade show, and we hope to see you there.
Hand layup has a long history in aerospace composites fabrication, but it's not well suited for automotive composites manufacturing, where volumes are much higher. But the discrete placement of fiber reinforcements still has value. Research is pointing toward automated hand layup that might help this process bridge the aerospace-to-automotive divide.
Tremendous secrecy and non-disclosure has kept this profitable composites application out of the spotlight, while it has enabled the current shale oil energy boom.
Designers envision aircraft components that do more than bear structural loads, but must first confront great complexities to actualize greater functional efficiency.
