Web tension control specialist Montalvo (Gorham, Maine, USA) will unveil new tension control concepts and technology as both an exhibitor and a conference program presenter. The company is featuring its multi-tow tensioning nip stand, which creates a drop-in solution for manufacturers who use multiple creels of material. This solution is said to offer tensioning system that integrates well into existing applications, allowing tension to be precisely controlled on each of the individual pieces of material. Montalvo will also demonstrate how tension control equipment can be incorporated into hand layup, filament winding, pultrusion and prepreg applications.

On the conference side, Montalvo has been selected to present, “Tension Control in Composites Manufacturing to Achieve Automated Processing and Reduced Scrap.” This presentation focuses on introducing the concept of tension control, what is it, how it applies to composites manufacturing and how it advances the production capabilities of manufacturers. Using specific composite application examples, Montalvo details the current state of composites tension control and what new technology exists to allow manufacturers to achieve automated and continuous production, reduce scrap, increase end product quality and increase productivity.

  • Taking the hand out of hand layup

    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.

  • HP-RTM on the rise

    Decades of development have propelled it to prominence but its future demands industrial solutions for handling cost, complexity and process control.

  • Composites recycling: Gaining traction

    Recycling of carbon fiber, glass fiber and — at last — resins, is growing as new players enter the space.
