Bally Ribbon Mills (BRM, Bally, Pa., U.S.) is showcasing its 3D woven joints, thermal protection systems and other 3D structures. BRM uses 3D continuous weaving to create new joint structures and to improve existing joints. Delivering the optimal blend of strength, durability, and structural integrity, BRM’s 3D woven joints are available in “Pi – π,” double “T,” “H,” and other complex net shapes. 3D woven joints from BRM are said to reduce weight and cost without sacrificing integrity and performance. Because of the nature of the 3-D weave, strength and support is translated in all three dimensions, thus enabling the join to reinforce the strength along the load paths of the sub-structures being joined together. These 3-D woven shapes for joining can be tailored to suit the architecture of the structure itself, as well as the sub-components being joined.

BRM thermal protection systems are often found in mission-critical components, particularly in space exploration vehicles, and 3D woven composites reduce weight and cost while maintaining excellent performance in thermal protection systems. The ability to vary yarn types, density, thickness and width, as well as resin type, allows BRM to create fully customizable thermal protection systems to meet a specific application’s needs.
