Matrix Composites (Rockledge, Fla., U.S.) is emphasizing its design and manufacture services for aerospace, defense and commercial/general aviation composite components and assemblies.

Operating under ITT Connect & Control Technologies, Matrix Composites’ full service capabilities include design, development, tooling, fabrication, testing and integration. Specializing in precision resin transfer molding (RTM) and conventional composites, the company says its robust manufacturing methods are ideal for composites and integrated structures requiring multiple finished surfaces, low void content and high fiber volume. Matrix uses precision machined tools and high-pressure processing systems to produce composite components with a high degree of repeatability and process control.

The company’s supported processes include: RTM, Hot Isostatic Resin Pressure Molding (HiRPM), vacuum assisted resin transfer molding (VARTM), autoclave curing, oven curing, and trapped tubber and bladder molding.

Matrix Composites’ proprietary closed molding process solution is called Hot Isostatic Resin Pressure Molding (HiRPM), and is said to be an ultra-precise technique for custom manufacturing parts for aerospace and defense applications. The technology is a compilation of tooling and manufacturing methods said to result in improved part quality and reduced cost.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
