Coats (Stockley Park, Uxbridge, UK), a manufacturer of industrial thread and consumer textile crafts, will launch Coats Synergex, a range of advanced composite fibers that can be processed into fabric form using many technologies, including commingling and twisting. The thermoplastic and reinforcement fibers can be commingled to meet strength, weight, performance and recyclability requirements. The fibers can be embroidered directly into complex shapes that can be metal-pressed to mold parts. Earlier this year Coats announced a partnership with Elemental Motor Co. The ultra lightweight wheel arches of Elemental’s new Rp1 sports car have been developed using Coats Synergex and visitors to the Coats stand at CAMX will be able to see, touch and pick up a wheel arch. Other products in the Coats booth include commingled yarns as well as twisted yarns.

  • Composites recycling becomes a necessity

    Boeing and Airbus each is generating as much as a 1 million lb of cured and uncured carbon fiber prepreg waste each year from 787 and A350 XWB production. If you include the entire supply chain for these planes, the total is closer to 4 million lb/year. And with the automotive industry poised to consume (and waste) more carbon fiber than ever, recycling of composite materials has become an absolute necessity. The technology is there, but the markets are not. Yet.

  • Additive manufacturing comes to composites fabrication

    The use of continuous fiber in additive manufacturing systems is not trivial, but it is being done. As this fabrication technology evolves and matures, options for applying it in everything from automotive to aerospace to consumer composites will expand tremendously, creating a host of new opportunities for the composites industry. Read here for who is providing what kind of additive manufacturing technology for use in composites fabrication.
