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.

JEC World 2017: Show report, part 1
JEC World 2017 was, by almost any measure, the biggest and busiest JEC event yet, and exhibitors came with much to show the world of composites about innovation in materials, equipment and technology.

RocTool demos “startup” molding systems at JEC Paris
Calling it “ideal” for startup composites molders who don’t want to invest in ovens, autoclaves or time- consuming heated-tooling options, RocTool Inc. (Le Bourget du Lac, France) demonstrated its trademarked LIT out-of-autoclave/out-of-press process at JEC.

The rise of HP-RTM
Decades of development have propelled it to prominence but its future demands industrial solutions for handling cost, complexity and process control.

The markets: Electronics (2015)
Glass fiber/epoxy laminates have been the foundational structural substrate in printed circuit boards (PCBs) for decades, but its dominance is currently under challenge.
