Composites Europe notes process chain cooperations are accelerating composites industry growth
Composites Europe this year highlighted the coordinated processing and production processes being developed in the marketplace.
iComposite 4.0 — cutting composites cost by 50%
An intelligent, integrated process using 3D fiber spraying, inline inspections/simulation and embedded RFID chips to cut scrap and rejections for structural HP-RTM epoxy parts.
Automated Preforming, Part 3: Quilted Stratum Process
CW’s tour of Cetim and the QSP line which preforms multi-thickness thermoplastic materials in 40-90 seconds for composite parts with cycle times of 1-2 minutes.
Preforming goes industrial: Part 1
ATL and AFP-based preforming options now abound for processing dry and/or impregnated reinforcements as quickly as 1 minute or less with potential yearly part yields in the millions.
