Web Industries Inc. (Marlborough, Mass., U.S.) introduces two brochures highlighting carbon fiber composite solutions for aerospace applications:

“Development Center for Composites Automation” profiles Web’s 10,000-square-foot facility for the development, testing and qualification of new prepreg composites used in automated fiber placement (AFP), automated tape laying (ATL) and other emerging manufacturing processes. The Center is said to help leading aerospace companies optimize their use of composites, shorten development time and move into production ahead of competitors.

The eight-page “Solutions for Aerospace” brochure covers Web’s proven ability to simultaneously support multiple major aircraft development programs. It outlines the full spectrum of Web’s products, services and capabilities, including precision slit tapes, automated ply cutting, thermoplastic formatting, pre-assembled ply kitting and vendor-managed inventory. A capsule case study shows how an aerospace engine manufacturer saved nearly $4 million by turning to Web Industries for its composite ply formatting and kitting services.

  • Composites 101: Fibers and resins

    Compared to legacy materials like steel, aluminum, iron and titanium, composites are still coming of age, and only just now are being better understood by design and manufacturing engineers. However, composites’ physical properties — combined with unbeatable light weight — make them undeniably attractive. 

  • Tooling

    Composite parts are formed in molds, also known as tools. Tools can be made from virtually any material. The material type, shape and complexity depend upon the part and length of production run. Here's a short summary of the issues involved in electing and making tools.

  • The fiber

    The structural properties of composite materials are derived primarily from the fiber reinforcement. Fiber types, their manufacture, their uses and the end-market applications in which they find most use are described.
