As Seen In CompositesWorld
Swinburne University and CSIRO's Industry 4.0 Testlab for Composite Additive Manufacturing
Australia and Germany collaborate to build Composites 4.0 production line for competitive advantage in next-gen manufacturing and workforce.
Composites 4.0: Architecture and ontology
Adaptive systems, IoT platforms and apps, the need for 4.0 standardization and a new way to develop and certify composite aerostructures.
DYNAPIXEL: automated, reconfigurable molds
CAD-driven system cuts time for design iterations, enables cost-effective customized jigs and molded parts.
Filament winding, reinvented
Robots and digital technology deliver speed plus larger, more complex parts, while generative 3D winding obviates mandrels and waste for automotive applications.
Automated Preforming, Part 5: Holistic Quality Optimization
Simulation and testing key to integrated approach for optimization of automated preforming, offering time and cost savings as well as basis for automated quality inspection.
Preforming goes industrial: Part 2
Automated preforming isn’t only for 2D and 2.5D parts. Innovators are taking successful aim at building 3D preforms at production speeds.
Composites and the future of package delivery
Germany-based CIKONI combined carbon fiber, aluminum and sandwich-based materials to create lightweight, modular shelving for the Vision Van, developed by Mercedes-Benz Vans. Video included.
