Teijin integrates carbon fiber business under one name
The Japanese parent company Toho Tenax Co. Ltd. has been integrated into Teijin Limited.

iComposite 4.0 AZL Schuler press glass fiber spray deposition preform with local carbon fiber UD patches

iComposite 4.0 — cutting composites cost by 50%
An intelligent, integrated process using 3D fiber spraying, inline inspections/simulation and embedded RFID chips to cut scrap and rejections for structural HP-RTM epoxy parts.

Consolidating thermoplastic composite aerostructures in place, Part 2
Thermoplastic composite structures could eliminate the autoclave and fasteners, but will a one- or two-step process prevail?

New hybrid prepreg from Toho Tenax.

Toho Tenax hybrid prepreg combines carbon fiber, CNT
New high-tensile, highly shock-resistant prepreg incorporates carbon fiber developed for aerospace applications and specialized carbon nanotubes.

Cevotec now offers tapes for AFP/ATL
Cevotec’s cevoTape carbon fiber tape for automated placement processes is now commercially available.

Consolidating thermoplastic composite aerostructures in place, Part 1
After more than 30 years of development, in-situ consolidation is nearing its promise to eliminate fasteners and the autoclave, and enable an integrated, multifunctional airframe.

Composite chef’s knife a chef d’oeuvre
A while back I blogged about a luxurious version of a champagne flute, via carbon fiber and gold. The designer, Ragnar Friberg, is at it again, this time with a composite take on the chef’s knife.

Variable-axial composites open path to lighter composite structures
CFRP recurve bow riser demonstrates design and manufacturing approach with potential to cut weight vs. aluminum by 50-75% while increasing strength and stiffness.

Toho Tenax to showcase a 1,000-meter bobbin of Tenax TPUD at Composites Europe
Composites Europe is the 11th European Trade Show & and Forum for Composites, Technology and Applications, which starts on Nov. 29, 2016 at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Center (Messegelände Düsseldorf).

The matrix (2017)
The matrix binds the fiber reinforcement, gives the composite component its shape and determines its surface quality. A composite matrix may be a polymer, ceramic, metal or carbon. Here's a guide to selection.

Fabrication methods (2017)
There are numerous methods for fabricating composite components. Selection of a method for a particular part, therefore, will depend on the materials, the part design and end-use or application. Here's a guide to selection.

Supply and demand: Advanced fibers (2017)
Demand for advanced fiber, virgin and reclaimed, is on an upswing after a dip during the recent recession. Fiber suppliers are gearing up to meet an expected increase in demand as manufacturers in a number of composites end-markets scale up or start up part development and production programs

Toho Tenax develops production system for carbon fiber composites
The process combines Toho Tenax' Part via Preform technology with high-pressure resin transfer molding (HP-RTM) to speed manufacture of carbon fiber composites.
