Carbon Conversions, Dell partner on sustainability
Carbon Conversions and Dell explore new recycled carbon fiber material combination with Latitude 7300 laptop cover.
The state of recycled carbon fiber
As the need for carbon fiber rises, can recycling fill the gap?
Hexcel molding compound enables high-volume, zero-waste process
The company’s HexMC-i 2000 high-performance molding compound has been used to produce a carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) transmission crossmember using a zero-waste process well-suited for high-volume manufacture.
Composites recycling — no more excuses
Columnist Dale Brosius outlines six actionable levels of composites recycling that fabricators should follow.
McNair Aerospace Center: Closing the composites education gap
As the composites industry in South Carolina continues to expand through Boeing and its tier suppliers, composites education follows suit through the McNair Center.
Carbon Fiber 2017 final highlights
Applications and enabling technologies for carbon fiber promise new market penetration – challenges notwithstanding.
Composites recycling is gaining traction
Although CW’s coverage of composites recycling dates back over a decade, informal statistics still show that only ~2% of composites-related companies are active recyclers. That said, three years since our most recent feature on the subject, there is demonstrably greater interest and activity, and real applications of recycled fiber are growing.
Composites recycling: Gaining traction
Recycling of carbon fiber, glass fiber and — at last — resins, is growing as new players enter the space.
Another opportunity to meet, and learn, in Paris
At the JEC World 2017, improvements in materials and processes were present at nearly every stand, with the emphasis on automotive-capable production speeds.
Ex-Toray executive joins Carbon Conversions
Keith Graham, previously with Toray Carbon Fibers America, will lead business development at CC
Supply and demand: Advanced fibers
Demand for advanced fiber, virgin and reclaimed, is on an upswing after a dip during the recent recession. Fiber suppliers are gearing up to meet an expected increase in demand as manufacturers in a number of composites end-markets scale up or start up part development and production programs
Report from IBEX 2015
As always, IBEX supplied new products, processes and education, not only to boatbuilders, but to the composites industry overall.
Supply and demand: Advanced fibers (2015)
Demand for advanced fiber, virgin and reclaimed, is on an upswing after a dip during the recent recession. Fiber suppliers are gearing up to meet an expected increase in demand as manufacturers in a number of composites end-markets scale up or start up part development and production programs.
CAMX 2014 show report
Bigger, better and more inclusive than any previous U.S. composites trade event, the inaugural show turns North American eyes forward to the future.
Recycled carbon fiber update: Closing the CFRP lifecycle loop
Commercial production of recycled carbon fiber currently outpaces applications for it, but materials characterization and new technology demonstrations promise to close the gap.
CAMISMA’s car seat back: Hybrid composite for high volume
Recycled fibers, in-situ polymerized PA12 and steel inserts combined in one-shot process to cut weight 40 percent at competitive cost, cycle time and safety.
2014 JEC Europe Review
The composites world met again in Paris, vibrant, stronger, and more forward-looking than ever before.
VX Aerospace: Small company, big performance
Innovative design, OOA manufacturing and C-PLY laminate construction produce “big fabricator” aerostructures in fewer steps at low cost.
Reselling, reusing composite materials and parts
The more carbon and glass fiber is used, the more it's thrown away. How the industry copes with reusable material will matter much in the coming decades. What do you do with your usable scrap?
Recycling carbon fiber back into the automobile
There is some hope on the near horizon for reclaiming carbon fibers from the estimated 40 to 60 percent scrap volume that results from the manufacture of automotive CFRP.
Automotive CFRP: The shape of things to come
CAFE and CO2 emission standards will drive auto OEMs to fully examine the physics of fuel economy, but will that, at last, steer them toward extensive use of carbon fiber composites?
