JEC World 2018 preview: Composite Integration Ltd.
Composite Integration (Saltash, UK) launches its new range of Ciject 3TM injection equipment at JEC World 2018 (Mar 6-8, Paris, France) in Hall 5A, stand J23.
The Ciject 3 is an advanced machine designed to process pre-mixed or single-component resin systems. The machine allows different resin systems to be prepared (i.e. heated, mixed, degassed) and then dispensed without the need to clean and re-prime a mechanical pumping system.
Originally developed for R&D and lab-scale processing, the Ciject 3 has now been developed further to suit the specific requirements of the aerospace and other hi-tech composite manufacturing industries. The accurate output control allows the machine to be used in both Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) and Resin Infusion (RI) processes.
There are numerous methods for fabricating composite components. Selection of a method for a particular part, therefore, will depend on the materials, the part design and end-use or application. Here's a guide to selection.
Lightweight, hard and stable at high temperatures, CMCs are emerging from two decades of study and development into commercial applications.
