Dynabrade (Clarence, N.Y.) introduced at WINDPOWER 2012 a new series of air-powered vacuum disc sanders. The product line features 2-, 3-, 5- and 7-inch (51-, 76-, 127- and 178-mm) diameter sanders, each with a unique vacuum shroud that diverts dust and debris from the workpiece. The tool's right-angle design features a rubber overmold on the housing for smooth operation and less vibration transfer to the operator. Each tool powers abrasive discs for efficient material removal on nonferrous surfaces, such as carbon fiber, fiberglass and painted aluminum. Additional vacuum products are available, including portable vacuum systems and downdraft tables.  


  • Fiber reinforcement forms

    Fibers used to reinforce composites are supplied directly by fiber manufacturers and indirectly by converters in a number of different forms, which vary depending on the application. Here's a guide to what's available.

  • Wind turbine blades: Glass vs. carbon fiber

    The problem: Produce wind power at a more competitive price. The answer? For some, it’s a more expensive reinforcement.

  • Composites: Materials and processes

    High strength at low weight remain the winning combination that propels composite materials into new arenas, but other properties are equally important. This article outlines the case for composites and introduces SourceBook's overview of the materials and processes used to make them.
