CompositesWorld is presenting a free MW Industries-sponsored webinar on Dec. 5 at 2 p.m. EST titled, “Disruptive Alternative for Metal Compression Springs Expands Product Development Possibilities.”

Abstract: Design engineers are constantly looking for new technologies to improve product design performance and create points of differentiation for their companies. For products using a traditional metal compression spring, a newly-developed carbon composite compression spring is improving mature product performance attributes. The new technology also offers a fresh approach for emerging innovations that require unique design considerations. In this webinar, we will introduce the audience to configurable, disk spring designs using carbon fiber-reinforced polymers. These surpass performance attributes of standard helical metal springs and act as a catalyst to push boundaries for unexplored or under-development applications.

Primary topics include:

  • Disrupting standard design considerations for springs
  • How properties of composites apply to disk spring design
  • Performance and design considerations
  • Uncovering niche uses

Presenter is Greg Hazard, composite spring product manager and aerospace market specialist at MW Industries (Rosemount, IL, US).

Working toward electric aircraft

A lot of research effort is occurring right now, focused on electric propulsion for aircraft. One US-based program is NASA’s Scalable Convergent Electric Propulsion Technology and Operations Research (SCEPTOR) subproject, which is developing the manned X-57 Maxwell experimental aircraft.
