Advances in Wind Energy Workshop

Advances in Wind Energy workshop registration opens
Two-day workshop from Composites One and the Closed Mold Alliance and IACMI explores advanced materials, manufacturing processes and repair techniques for wind energy applications.

Big composite container protects vital satellite
Before they experience the vibrations of launch and the rigors of the space environment, satellites first have to make it to the launch pad. Pagnotta Engineering Inc. (PEI, Exton, PA, US) was called upon by Orbital ATK (Dulles, VA, US) to design a shipping box to protect Orbital ATK’s GEOStar-3 geosynchronous satellite bus structure, during shipment.

spread tow applications, carbon fiber tows

The spread of spread tow
Advancing from “lighter and thinner” to boosting strength, stiffness, impact resistance and productivity, spread tow unlocks new applications and markets.

Composite fendering piles fit the bill
Composites replace wood in New Jersey marine fender project.
