A&P Technology is offering a new line of unidirectional carbon fabrics, currently available in 4oz/sq.yd and 9oz/sq.yd weights.
The patent-pending material is a non-woven textile that has a relatively small percentage of binder material (less than 3%). The binder is applied to only one side of the fabric resulting in virtually no crimp in the fibres, making the fabrics efficient and affordable.
Current offerings of the fabric and with standard modulus carbon, whilst fabrics made with intermediate modulus carobon will soon be available. At the moment the intermediate modulus fabric are being characterised for aerospace applications.
Stratasys announces it is deepening its partnership with Boom Supersonic – the Colorado-based company building history’s fastest supersonic airliner. In signing a seven-year agreement extension, the companies are further accelerating adoption of additive manufacturing for 3D-printed flight hardware.
CRP Technology collaborated with the Department of Aerospace Science and Technology of the Politecnico di Milano (PoliMi) on the construction of parts for the aeroelastic wind tunnel demonstrators for ‘Aeroelastic Flutter Suppression (AFS)’ e ‘GLAMOUR’ projects.
Research to develop a revolutionary high-performance composite metal hybrid stabiliser bar for trucks and trains has entered a new phase. The findings from the project to date show that the technology has the potential to spin out into other sectors such as aerospace and could see the UK take a global lead with this disruptive technology.
