Suprem SA begins new pultrusion line production
Highly automated manufacturing line processes continuous fibers with high-performance thermoplastics for tapes, profiles and rods.
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.
Thermoformable thermoplastic composites
Thermoplastic composites that can be shaped into finished parts via thermoforming are proliferating as the thermoforming process gains traction, particularly in aerospace manufacturing. The following short article and chart provide some guidance in terms of sourcing.
