As Seen In CompositesWorld
The markets: Boatbuilding and marine (2020)
In the boatbuilding and marine markets, the increasing size and number of outboards per boat is driving the need for reduced weight in composite hulls and decks.
Tuning the running shoe
Continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites enable high-performance athletic shoe components.
Composite catamaran hits high watermarks
Inspired by design elements found in racing catamarans and employing composite structures in innovative ways, Compmillennia has rolled out a fishing/excursion cat that uniquely combines high speed, great fuel economy and a smooth ride.
Biodegradable, biobased Ekoa composite veneers are in production
Ekoa 99.7% bio-based veneers are used to finish surfaces in walls, ceilings, furniture and vehicle interiors.
Increasing access to AFP
Addcomposites is democratizing composites manufacturing by leasing a low-cost toolhead that turns any robot into an automated fiber placement machine.
Injection-forming for high-performance, unitized thermoplastic structures
Combining braided tape, overmolding and form-locking, herone produces one-piece, high-torque gear-driveshaft as demonstrator for broad range of applications.
Composites-focused engineering, simulation services company launches in Germany
Simutence GmbH, a company started by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology graduates, offers custom simulation methods to composites manufacturers across end markets.
Cms North America to hold open house
Cms North America is holding an open house event, called “International Limitless Technology Experience,” at its Grand Rapids, Michigan location on July 31 – Aug. 2, 2019.
Smarter, integrated data for ATL/AFP
More than helping to eliminate dry runs and costly errors, AFP/ATL software is beginning to benefit the whole product lifecycle through the interconnectedness of the digital thread.
Proving performance in EV powertrains
Simulation-driven development replaces aluminum with thermoplastic composites in gearbox housing.
Continuous Fiber Manufacturing (CFM) with moi composites
Continuous fiber 3D printing using epoxy, vinylester and acrylic with continuous glass, carbon, basalt and other fibers, including deposition along nonlinear curves, is only the beginning.
Sustainable thermoplastics and additive manufacturing alliance forms in Colorado
Vartega, the Colorado Cleantech Industries Association and a group of industry and academic partners have founded an Advanced Materials and Additive Manufacturing Infrastructure Development and Education (AMIDE) Alliance.
Generative design and continuous 3D fiber deposition
Generative design replicates nature’s evolutionary approach by combining artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud computing to provide thousands of solutions to one engineering problem.
Coal as an avenue to low-cost carbon fibers
An update on efforts to produce pitch-based fibers from low-cost coal.
Composites and Industry 4.0: Where are we?
As the tide of the Fourth Industrial Revolution rolls in, how will composite manufacturers ride the wave?
X-rays for NDT of composites
Nondestructive test (NDT) methods can be employed during the design, manufacture and in-field maintenance of composite components.
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.
Automated filament winding enables competitive composite cylinders
Carefully controlled, robust, volume processes offer fabricators of Class IV LPG/CNG tanks a means to meet increasing demand in Europe and Asia.
Fiber patch preforms help tailor kiteboard performance
Automated means for laying fiber only where needed offers new potential to fine-tune torsional stiffness and flexibility to board and rider styles.
Understanding the influence of fiber orientation on structural analysis of fiber-filled parts
The effect of fiber orientation on material properties is a key way the injection molding process impacts mechanical performance. Doug Kenik and Angie Schrader of the Design, Lifecycle & Simulation product group at Autodesk (Waltham, MA, US) illustrates two ways fiber orientation influences the structural behavior of fiber-filled parts and discuss the need for a bi-directional approach to design and analysis.
SFMOMA façade: Advancing the art of high-rise FRP
The fabrication and installation of 700+ composite panels has a backstory of detailed design and careful quality assurance.
