Overmolded hybrid parts open new composites markets

Overmolded hybrid parts open new composites markets
A process that combines continuous carbon fiber-reinforced PAEK with chopped fiber/PEEK overmolding is making inroads in the aerospace market. Parts that previously could not be produced cost-effectively from composites can now be made at less cost than their metal counterparts.

The TUM module is just visible as a brown segment between blue segments in the upper half. The brown is the cork insulation surrounding the module.

Rocket module manufactured with in-situ consolidation survives first flight test
A carbon fiber-reinforced thermoplastic (CFRP) module developed at the Technical University of Munich survived its first launch — and a “hard landing” — in March.
