Following many months of design and development and contributions from end-users in aerospace and motorsport, AIC’s new system will be ready to preview at the show.
AIC say that the system, developed in conjunction with Honeywell, delivers a proven hardware platform. The software interface has been developed by engineers with many years of experience in designing, building and operating autoclaves and other complex processes.
""We have a number of customers around the world who run ""Autoclave Manager"" with FGH instruments. As soon as FGH Controls announced the end of production of their instruments we accelerated our development program to ensure that we could not only support these existing systems, but also provide an attractive alternative for those looking to upgrade any autoclave control system"", said Managing Director, Tony Toll.
Solvay has signed a ten-year agreement for the supply of composites and adhesives to be used across Bell's military and commercial rotorcraft programmes, including the Bell 429, 407, 505, 525, V-22, and UH-1.
SGL Carbon and Fraunhofer IGCV have officially opened the Fibre Placement Centre (FPC) at SGL's site in Meitingen, Germany. Compositence, BA Composites and the Chair for Carbon Composites at the Technical University of Munich have also joined the alliance, and Coriolis Group and Cevotec are planning to come on board as partners.
With the aim developing a broader platform for additive manufacturing (AM) technologies, the University of Exeter, UK, and Victrex, have formed a strategic partnership to introduce next-generation polyaryletherketone (PAEK) polymers and composites while improving the performance of the underlying AM processes.
