Damen Shipbuilding and project consortium partners test 6-meter-high, resin-infused composite hull section.
Multi-scale modeling, testing, sensors and machine learning will advance understanding and algorithms to achieve process control and optimization for both aerospace and automotive supply chains.
The BM-5 laminate board can be screwed, tapped, fastened, bonded and painted just like a metal, and requires no prepreg, layout or curing. It also has a comparable cost to metal, removing operator and financial barriers to adopt carbon fiber.
Reconfigurable mold aids development of digitally-manufactured composite parts for reduced-emissions transport vehicles.
Prepping the U.S. challenger for the 36th America’s Cup, Symmetrix applied its large format 5-axis CNC machine to produce the patterns and molds within sub-millimeter accuracy.
