Composites and polymers research specialist University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI, Dayton, Ohio, USA) is featuring a tooling material fabricated via the fused deposition modeling (FDM) additive manufacturing process. The material is said to be vaccum-tight, mold release-compatible, stable at 350°F/177°C for multiple cycles, and able to receive coatings. UDRI will also emphasize nanocomposites and advanced composite coatings for erosion protection.

  • 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.
