Engineering Technology Corp. (Salt Lake City, Utah, U.S.) is presenting its standard filament winders and will provide individual demonstrations on the use of it pattern generation software, FiberGrafiX.
ETC’s filament winders are designed for cost-effectiveness and reliability, with standard options ranging from laboratory scale table-top winders specifically made for winding test coupons, to multi-spindle automated pressure vessel winders with industry-leading fiber payout.
FiberGrafiX is ETC’s pattern generation software for filament winding, and the company says that every CAMX participant who reserves a spot in advance will have an individual FiberGrafiX demonstration conducted by Carlos Ferreira, ETC’s product development manager. During this workshop, participants will develop a pattern using FiberGrafiX and then view this same pattern being used in a live winding demonstration. The entire process will be accomplished in only one hour! Booth N67.
A sheet molding compound renaissance highlights new reinforcements, new fillers, new matrices, new opportunities.
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.
