Web Industries releases brochures highlighting aerospace composites solutions
The downloadable brochures highlight Web’s automation development center and its suite of aerospace solutions.
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 four-page brochure can be downloaded here.
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.

Capable of volume production, thermoplastic composites will gain new market share in the aerospace industry.
Fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) replacing coated steel in more reinforced-concrete applications.
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.
