Resins for the Fast Zone An automotive supplier must have the ability to produce a composite part in a minute, or at least in minutes — not hours or days, the norm for composites in most other industries. Meeting that part-per-minutes goal is a huge hurdle that a few composite fabricators have cleared, and many […]

3D Printing Moves Into Tooling Components Some pundits predict that 3D printing, or additive manufacturing (AM), will change our world forever. While that may yet be, one thing is clear: The growth of 3D printing over the past two decades has wrought significant change in composites tooling. Although AM’s most obvious advantage is direct part […]

A Critical Market Sector: Downhole Composites in Oil and Gas The U.S. has experienced an unprecedented onshore energy boom over the past decade that has brought the country nearly to energy-independence. Much of that boom has been the result of a technology called hydraulic fracturing, often termed “fracing,” the process of artificially fracturing or perforating […]

HP-RTM on the Rise Already used in series production of structural carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) parts in BMW’s i3 and i8 models, high-pressure resin transfer molding (HP-RTM) is viewed by some as new technology. To others, it is merely modernization of early RTM processes, like that used to build Dodge Viper parts (25 years […]

Composites Riding High in Commercial Aero Engines Composites debuted in a commercial aircraft engine 20 years ago when GE Aviation introduced the GE90, which featured first-of-its-kind carbon fiber fan blades. Since then, composites have steadily worked their way into more structures, including fan surrounds, nacelles and other components. Today, every major engine manufacturer uses composites […]
