Former President of India, Honorable Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam will inaugurate Kemrock’s new carbon fibre plant this Sunday, 9th May.
Kemrock Industries & Exports Ltd. has established itself as a major company in composite materials, and India’s first 400 ton pa carbon fibre plant with technical know-how from the National Aerospace Laboratories, Bangalore.
Kemrock say that this is a major landmark in the Indian composites industry, aiming to lead India towards independence in carbon fibre technology, focusing on composites for defence, aerospace and infrastructural sectors.
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.
