IACMI: Driving innovation in the advanced composites industry

IACMI: Driving innovation in the advanced composites industry
Since its start in 2015, the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI) has come a long way in its mission of advancing composites innovation. CTO Uday Vaidya reflects on the past five years.

Simplifying the solar panel with composites
Replacing glass and aluminum with a polymer/cored polymer composite laminate ups panel durability at reduced weight.

Dow, DuPont complete merger to become DowDuPont
DowDuPont will operate as a holding company under with three standalone divisions – Agriculture, Materials Science and Specialty Products.

Composites: Hiding in plain sight
We need a collective public relations campaign to create more awareness of composites’ benefits.

Autocomposites Update: Engine oil pans
As thermoplastic composites makes inroads into these complex, modular parts, weight and cost go down, functionality goes up.

The markets: Automotive (2014)
A revitalized auto industry emerged from the Great Recession in 2012 leaner and, in terms of health-related concerns, cleaner, too, but faced a one-two punch in terms of fuel economy and carbon-dioxide (CO2) emission standards that put intense focus on vehicle lightweighting.

High-temp thermoplastics: Higher Expectations
As the drive to greater fuel efficiency under the hood catches fire, fiber-reinforced thermoplastics prove they can take the heat.

Cleaner and greener: Bio-based end tanks
Plant-based polyamides break high-cost/low-performance paradigm to meet the demands of a challenging Toyota underhood application.

Under the hood: Thermoplastics tackle tough jobs
Reinforced plastics save weight and cost, increase underhood productivity.

ECO Elise (top view)

ECO Elise concept: Lean, speedy and green
Focus on use of sustainable materials and cleaner manufacturing processes promises future Lotus customers “almost-guilt-free” performance.

Meridian Green Car Conf booth

Green Car Conference looks at sustainable vehicles
Well-attended first-time event marred by lack of composites industry representation.

Wheel-lip Molding

Composites Pick Up New Applications in Light Trucks
Long a bastion of steel, the tougher-duty pickup segment of the light truck market is warming to the benefits of composites.
