AFP tow steering comes of age, Part 1: Current state
It used to be enough that AFP systems could precisely and quickly place and cut multiple tows to build complex aerostructures. Now, fabricators need those tows steered, and the tighter the radius, the better.
Firefly Aerospace to automate composite rocket production with Ingersoll AFP machine
The company plans to transition manufacture of its Alpha and Beta all-composite launch vehicles to automated fiber placement starting in 2021.
The Alpha launch vehicle: Designing performance in, cost out
Firefly Aerospace’s Alpha 2.0 launch vehicle, designed to deliver satellites into low Earth orbit, gets a composites makeover in pursuit of larger payload capacity and more cost-effective performance.
New 3dpbm market analysis division presents AM industry study results
Analysis of composites additive manufacturing performed by the new market analysis and consultancy group shows the market generating $10.6 billion in yearly revenues by 2030.
3D printing with continuous fiber: A landscape
