CAMX 2019 exhibit preview: IKONICS Advanced Material Solutions
Appears in Print as: 'Machining methods for perforating composites'
IKONICS AMS will offer a presention on “Machining Methods for Perforating Composites,” during CAMX 2019.
IKONICS Advanced Material Solutions (Duluth, Minn., U.S.) is well-known in the aerospace field for its non-traditional machining method, Precision Abrasive Machining (PAM). The company is also branching into a variety of new areas such as designing customized patterns for prosthetic limb enhancement, emergency vehicle interiors, fenders, steel screen replacement and more.
IKONICS AMS will offer a presentation on “Machining Methods for Perforating Composites,” during CAMX 2019. Wes Barton, senior application and sales Specialist for IKONICS AMS will cover such topics as:
- Composite Growth in Aerospace
- Typical Perforated Expectations & Traditional Perforating Limitations
- Perforating Methods
- Precision Abrasive Machining (PAM)
- PAM Process vs. Traditional Machining Methods
- PAM Applications
The drive to boost aircraft operating efficiency continues to fuel adoption of polymer matrix composites in jet engines.
Recycling of carbon fiber, glass fiber and — at last — resins, is growing as new players enter the space.
Designers envision aircraft components that do more than bear structural loads, but must first confront great complexities to actualize greater functional efficiency.
