Mikrosam to supply GKN Fokker with AFP, consolidation equipment for thermoplastic composites
The suite of equipment includes Mikrosam’s latest automated fiber placement (AFP) machine, slitting equipment for thermoplastic prepregs and a custom-engineered thermoplastic consolidating machine.

The markets: Pressure vessels (2020)
High-pressure gas storage vessels represent one of the biggest and fastest-growing markets for advanced composites.

The markets: Fuels cells and batteries (2020)
Although fuel-cell powered vehicles could still be in the automotive future, growth will be measured, and so will the market there for composite components. Composites for electric vehicle battery packs and hydrogen tanks for fuel cell vehicles will be the more immediate opportunity.
