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)

  • Preforming goes industrial: Part 1

    ATL and AFP-based preforming options now abound for processing dry and/or impregnated reinforcements as quickly as 1 minute or less with potential yearly part yields in the millions.

  • More and more composites blowing in the wind

    Wind energy is putting the uncertainty that was the hallmark of this industry in the rearview mirror. Electricity from this renewable resource is cheaper and more competitive than it's ever been — and getting more so. This massive consumer of composite materials has a bright future.

  • 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.
