Author details the mechanics of materials for the construction of laminates manufactured with the aid of pressure, computer simulations and infusion strategies and more.
Gelcoat modified by use of graphene nanotubes imparts conductivity to the surface of composite parts and enables powder coating instead of liquid painting.
New features include “masks” giving users greater control over fiber reinforcement in an easy-to-visualize manner.
Simplified reverse engineering processes provides a single working environment from scan to manufacturable CAD model.
ABS-based carbon fiber material for the Stratasys F123 Series 3D printer line is 15% stronger and 50% stiffer compared to standard ABS.
Suitable for prepreg and infusion processes, Hexcel’s HexPly XF reduce shell manufacturing time by up to 2 hours and removes all surface defects prior to painting.
Suitable for all plastic extruders, the MV Multi-Trap Vacuum Inlet Trap combines a full knockdown baffle with multiple stainless steel gauze filters to capture all volatile byproducts.
Shop floor dimensional measuring machines are offered as a single- or three-axis table for cutting, bending, punching, waterjet cutting, laser cutting, drilling or tapping.
Surface film protects exposed fibers and minimizes surface roughness of CMC components for operating temperatures of up to 1,093ºC.
High-speed pyrometer possesses a detection time of 90 µs, and is ideal for low-temperature measurements.
