As Seen In CompositesWorld
Composite output shaft ready for automotive proving ground
Unlike automotive driveshafts, automotive output shafts cannot leverage shaft length as a factor when making the case for composites. Instead, other beneficial features have made a composite output shaft able to compete with metal shafts, especially in electric vehicles.
Composite T-boom accelerates industrial automation
A manufacturing method that integrates filament winding with axil winding of 0-degree fibers opens new design options in industrial automated equipment.
Coal as an avenue to low-cost carbon fibers
An update on efforts to produce pitch-based fibers from low-cost coal.
Vertically integrated CMC supply chain
GE Aviation's new ceramic matrix composite supply chain includes fiber, prepreg and unprecedented parts production facilities, plus a strongly tied 4-bump development stream.
Solar Impulse 2: Pulse on the future
Not yet through their ‘round the world flight, this superlight solar plane’s airframe-proven materials are already destined for higher callings.
Spread-tow technology takes off
New, ultralight-areal-weight prepreg tapes form the thin-ply laminates will enable Solar Impulse 2’s sun-powered flight around the world.
SiC manufacturing partnership
Nippon Carbon (Tokyo, Japan), GE Aviation (Newark, Del.) and Snecma (Courcouronnes, France) have banded together to form NGS Advanced Fibers Co. Ltd.
SAMPE Long Beach 2013 review
The Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering’s (SAMPE, Covina, Calif.) spring conference and exhibition is the organization’s largest event every year, and the 2013 edition, held May 6-9 in Long Beach, Calif., was no exception.
Designing bicycling’s lightest pro racing frame
Cervélo’s Vroomen White Design group combines analysis and manufacturing acumen to create a 675g/1.5 lb composite frame.
Designing for dimensional stability in space
The accuracy of orbiting instruments depends on skillfully designed and manufactured composite components.
Are high-temp thermosets ready to go commercial?
Developed for the U.S. military, these high-performance matrices are branching out into wider use.
