The flagship CAMX Award recognizes innovations that have the potential to significantly impact composites and advanced materials in the marketplace. The CAMX Award will be awarded to two game changing entries that reflect the depth and breadth of the CAMX theme:
COMBINED STRENGTH AWARD
This award is presented to the composites product that clearly demonstrates a team approach and effort that brings together knowledge, resources, and talent to produce an incredible example of the best use of composites materials that solves a problem.
The CAMX 2018 winner is Creating Functional Composite Parts Using A State of The Art Material And Process Innovation: XSTRAND™ by Owens Corning.
Creating Functional Composite Parts Using A State of The Art Material And Process Innovation: XSTRAND™
Over the past 2 years, Owens Corning has worked to develop a range of technical 3D printing filament products supported by key partners. This submission showcases their product.
The first ever innovative nature mimicking surfboard in the world, typically called “KL3IS surfboard, has been launched out by GC Innovation research team. This project has been collaborated with Thailand’s Cobra International Co. Ltd., Asia’s largest surfboard manufacturing plant.
Multiscale Simulation Software to Reduce Material Development Cost
With a co-investment led by Solvay, MultiMechanics has developed advanced testing software that helps companies virtually predict failure in advanced materials at an unprecedented level of speed and accuracy.
We are manufacturers of high-quality, carbon fiber sheets in size 2500 x 600 mm, our thickness is from 1 mm to 50 mm. We can also make sandwich sheet with a high radiolucent and our sheet can also achieve very little deflection.
