IKONICS Advanced Material Solutions (AMS; Duluth, MN, US) has developed PAM (precision abrasive machining) technology for perforating composites and other brittle materials while minimizing substrate compromise. IKONICS says PAM is particularly beneficial for machining a variety of features and shapes, not limited to through-holes in the carbon fiber composites, fiberglass, Kevlar composites, ceramics, sapphire wafers and silicon wafers.

    Disruptive designs for composites operation in 1093°C zones.

  • Preforming goes industrial: Part 1

    ATL and AFP-based preforming options now abound for processing dry and/or impregnated reinforcements as quickly as 1 minute or less with potential yearly part yields in the millions.

  • 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.
