Composites One (Arlington Heights, Ill., U.S.) and the Closed Mold Alliance are presenting a series of live demos on closed molding and advanced processes at CAMX 2019. The demos will take place inside a large, enclosed staging area on the exhibit floor (Booth U24).

According to the company, this year's demos will be broken down into multiple segments presented on the same or succeeding days so attendees can focus on the topics that interest them the most. Demo topics include vacuum infusion, light resin transfer molding and advanced processes producing real-life parts for aerospace, transportation, marine, wind energy, consumer recreation and other markets.

Specifically, real-life part demos will include:

  • a multi-segment presentation of a boat hull being built, step by step;
  • an aerospace part built, damaged and repaired, also presented in several segments,
  • a kayak paddle built from carbon fiber, starting with a video showing the 3D printing of its mold all the way through production; 
  • a production cell demo outputting skateboards nonstop; and
  • new technology demos featuring robotic gel coaters, next-gen tooling and other innovations.

Demos will feature systems from Magnum Venus Products (MVP) and tooling from RTM North Ltd. Along with Composites One, both MVP and RTM North are founding members of the Closed Mold Alliance, a resource dedicated to helping manufacturers successfully convert to closed mold and advanced processes.

Also at CAMX, Composites One will announce its continued partnership with IACMI – the Composites Institute as well as its 2020 joint workshop schedule.

  • Composites 101: Fibers and resins

    Compared to legacy materials like steel, aluminum, iron and titanium, composites are still coming of age, and only just now are being better understood by design and manufacturing engineers. However, composites’ physical properties — combined with unbeatable light weight — make them undeniably attractive. 

  • 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.

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