Nederman LLC (Charlotte, North Carolina) is emphasizing its products and services to protect people, planet and products from the harmful effects of industrial processes. When composite materials are cut, milled, machined or polished, they release potentially explosive dust, particles and fibers. These combustible dusts are often small enough to enter human lungs, especially when the material is fiberglass. The dust can penetrate the skin and cause an eczema-like reaction. Lubricants and fluids used in the production of composite materials also generate organic substances and gases that are dangerous when inhaled. A clean production environment is essential for the quality and finish of the product. Nederman dust-extraction solutions are designed to help minimize contaminants and create a safe working environment. Nederman also has experience providing solutions for handling potentially explosive dusts.


  • 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.

  • Supersonic flight goes commercial, again

    Boom Technology describes its program to validate a cost-effective faster-than-sound airliner.

  • 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.
