Victrex optimizes PAEK polymers for AM platform
The University of Exeter has commissioned an EOS P 810 laser sintering platform, for use with Victrex high-temperature PAEK polymers.
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.
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.
Injection-forming for high-performance, unitized thermoplastic structures
Combining braided tape, overmolding and form-locking, herone produces one-piece, high-torque gear-driveshaft as demonstrator for broad range of applications.
Thermoplastic composites: Poised to step forward
The evolving role of thermoplastic materials and processes and their future in next-generation commercial aircraft.
Victrex and Bond partner for 3D printing PAEK parts
The companies are collaborating to combine Victrex’s PAEK material expertise and Bond’s 3D printing technology for an accelerated pathway to 3D-printed PAEK part production.
Thermoplastic composite pipe on the rise in the deep sea
Demonstrators, pilot programs and qualification efforts are paying off as thermoplastic composite pipe (TCP) makers take orders for deep-sea oil and gas applications.
SFS Intec, TxV to redesign aircraft bracket using thermoplastic composites
Originally made from aluminum, the new bracket will be made of VICTREX AE 250 composites overmolded with VICTREX PEEK polymer.
JEC World 2019 preview: Victrex and Coriolis
Victrex (Thornton Cleveleys, U.K., 5/S29) and Coriolis Composites (Queven, France, 6/A32) are announcing cooperative work they did with thermoplastic unidirectional tape (TP UDT) prepreg lay-up and consolidation to improve the manufacturing efficiency of composite parts.
Surface Generation molding technology selected for Victrex parts-based programs
Surface Generation’s Production to Functional Specification (PtFS) technology manages multiple part areas during processing and drive reductions in the energy consumption, injection processing pressures and cycle times.
CFRP module saves weight on rocket design
Taking advantage of carbon fiber/PEEK mechanical and thermal performance, the Technical University of Munich replaces an aluminum rocket module with a 40+% lighter composite alternative.
Victrex launches PEEK polymer for cryogenics
VICTREX CT 200 is designed for dynamic sealing applications where gases such as liquefied natural gas (LNG) are stored and transported at cryogenic temperatures.
Spirit AeroSystems joins TPRC as Tier-1 member
The TPRC’s membership base has grown to a community of 20 members focused on progressing the use of thermoplastic composites.
Victrex and University of Exeter partner on PAEK for additive manufacturing
3D printing collaboration to focus on R&D in the pursuit of the potential of high-performance polymers in additive manufacturing.
Victrex launches PAEK polymer solutions for additive manufacturing
Polymer based solutions company unveils high strength material for laser sintering (LS) and filament for filament fusion (FF) with improved Z-strength.
PEEK vs. PEKK vs. PAEK and Continuous Compression Molding
Suppliers of thermoplastics and carbon fiber chime in regarding PEEK vs. PEKK, and now PAEK, as well as in-situ consolidation — the supply chain for thermoplastic tape composites continues to evolve.
Composites Overmolding conference agenda set
The Composites Overmolding 2018 conference will be held June 13-14, 2018, at the Suburban Collection Showplace, Diamond Center, in Novi, Michigan.
PEEK or PEKK in future TPC aerostructures?
Which is better for in-situ consolidated thermoplastic composite primary structures? Materials play a part as to whether a one-step or two-step process will prevail.
Thermoplastic composites: Past the tipping point?
The manufacturing world watched a decade ago as automatically placed thermoset composite tapes replaced aluminum in commercial airframes and made composites a household word in markets around the world. Has the time come for thermoplastic composite tapes to make a similar impact?
JEC World 2018: The highlights
JEC World is the composites industry’s largest trade show and did not disappoint this year.
