FPC to explore new production concepts for lightweight components
SGL Carbon and Fraunhofer IGCV have officially opened a new Fiber Placement Center in Meitingen, Germany.

Thermoplastic composites: Past the tipping point?
The manufacturing world watched a decade ago as automatically placed thermoset composite tapes replaced aluminum in commercial airframes and made composites a household word in markets around the world. Has the time come for thermoplastic composite tapes to make a similar impact?

Chinese firm invests in advanced preforming technology
Compositence GmbH (Leonberg, Germany), specializing in innovative preforming technologies for carbon, glass and other fiber types and supplier of tailored preforms, has partnered with GON Group (Qingdao, China).

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.
