The Bodycote Testing’s European Technology Centre based in Linköping, Sweden has been approved by Nadcap for the testing of composite materials for the aerospace industry.
The laboratory is one of the first in the world to receive approval for this type of testing.
Bodycote Materials Testing’s UK laboratories in Lancaster and Newcastle, as well as in Plzeò in The Czech Republic and Centech in Toulouse have achieved Nadcap accreditation while the Bridgwater laboratory has achieved Nadcap approval for composites testing.
Bodycote Testing Group’s Bridgwater facility is also now able to offer testing services for measuring energy absorption and related impact properties of polymers, metals composites and resulting final components with the installation of a Dynatup 9250 system.
INEOS Styrolution announces that it is planning to set up a new production site for its successful composite StyLight.
Williams Advanced Engineering is working with the UK’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) and Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) to develop innovative battlefield shelter protection for troops using Formula One-derived technology and processes created in-house at Williams to create composite 3D structures that can be deployed in theatre.
On 11 April 2019, the 9 Partner Institutes of the AZL opened the doors of their machinery halls and research labs to provide an extensive and on-site insight into the research and development capacities in the field of lightweight production and composites at the RWTH Aachen Campus.
