JEC World 2016, the full report
CompositesWorld's editors report on the technologies and products that caught our eye at JEC World 2016, in early March.

GE Aviation, Batesville, MS, US
With a supply chain busy making commercial jet engines like the GE90, GEnx, LEAP and GE9X, GE Aviation has invested heavily in its composites capabilities in Batesville.

Reducing manufacturing cost via RTM
Airbus Bremen aims to replace dozens of prepreg components and assembly operations with a unitized multispar composite flap molded in a one-shot process.

CMF project's process combines prepreg with RTM
In its goal to simplify production of outboard wing flaps for narrow body aircraft during its Composite Multispar Flap (CMF) project, the Airbus Bremen (Bremen, Germany) team demonstrated fabricating the parts using the Same Qualified Resin Transfer Molding (SQRTM) process, developed by Radius Engineering (Salt Lake City, UT, US).

The rise of HP-RTM
Decades of development have propelled it to prominence but its future demands industrial solutions for handling cost, complexity and process control.

JEC Europe 2014 Review
The composites world met again in Paris, vibrant, stronger, and more forward-looking than ever before.

The market for OOA aerocomposites, 2013-2022
In the coming decade, out-of-autoclave technologies will increase composites penetration into primary flight structures.

HPC's 20th Anniversary: Thanks to HPC’s charter advertisers
Every trade publication lives and dies by its advertisers, and those who had the gumption to ante up for HPC’s premier issue are listed here and those who are still with us (see page numbers below) are gratefully recognized with the HPC 20th Anniversary Medallion.

SAMPE Europe 2013/JEC Europe 2013 highlights
Held concurrently, these two seminal European composites events weathered a rare Parisian snowstorm to plumb the depth and breadth of the industry.

JEC Europe 2013: Highlights from the show
Despite a rare snowstorm on the first day that kept some attendees and exhibitors away, the JEC Europe 2013 show in Paris March 12-14 offered the usual glimpse at emerging technology and trends in composites.

Tooling for composites: Evolutionary trajectory
New technologies and improved methods keep up as tools get bigger and more complex and toolmaking gets ever more challenging.

SQRTM enables net-shape parts
New out-of-autoclave process combines resin transfer molding with prepregs for complex helicopter part prototype.

Automate or emigrate
Automated fiber and tape placement is not just a notion, but a real manufacturing strategy, and one being embraced by HITCO Carbon Composites.

A preform braided directly over a mandrel ensures the high fiber volume needed for the JASSM missile body.

Autoclave Quality Outside The Autoclave?
Pioneers of out-of-autoclave processing in aerospace applications answer a qualified but enthusiastic Yes!

At the SAMPE Europe/JEC event in Paris, Prins Dokkum (Dokkum, The Netherlands) exhibited its innovative Dynawheel, an all-carbon-fiber truck wheel for

SAMPE Wrap Up And Product Showcase
Exhibitions on both sides of the Atlantic spur optimism and spotlight innovative technology.

The top of the RTM mold is lifted away from the molded flap. Note that the mold weight requires lifting infrastructure.

New Approaches To Cost-effective Tooling
New methods, materials and philosophies add up to tooling innovations.
