CompositesWorld’s inaugural Top Shops benchmarking survey has officially launched and is available at https://www.research.net/r/CWTS19web. Top Shops is designed to help composites fabricators assess the effectiveness and efficiency of their manufacturing operations. The survey will be available to respondents until April 30, 2019.

CW Top Shops is available to all composites fabricators globally and measures factors such as:

  • Facility type
  • Markets served by facility
  • Materials, processes and tooling types used
  • Inspection pass rate
  • On-time delivery performance
  • Operations uptime
  • Scrap rate
  • Quality parameters
  • Inspection methodologies
  • Materials management methodologies
  • Capital equipment spend rate
  • Customer retention rate
  • Employee turnover

Respondents who complete the CW Top Shops survey and provide an email address will receive a customized report that shows how his or her facility compares to others measured in the survey. Specific facility responses are otherwise only reported in aggregate. In addition, respondents can opt into the CW Top Shops Honors Program, designed to recognize the best-performing composites fabrication facilities.

  • Supply and demand: Advanced fibers

    Demand for advanced fiber, virgin and reclaimed, is on an upswing after a dip during the recent recession. Fiber suppliers are gearing up to meet an expected increase in demand as manufacturers in a number of composites end-markets scale up or start up part development and production programs

  • Composite flywheels: Finally picking up speed?

    A wave of new composite flywheel developments for bus, rail, auto, heavy truck, construction equipment, and power grid support promises fuel savings, improved efficiency and reduced emissions — i.e. sustainability in the global quest for more energy.

  • The fiber

    The structural properties of composite materials are derived primarily from the fiber reinforcement. Fiber types, their manufacture, their uses and the end-market applications in which they find most use are described.
