Advanced Composites Group will be exhibiting its composite technology at the Composites Europe exhibition on Stand B36 in Hall10/11 at the Essen Exhibition Centre in Essen, Germany from the 14th to 16th September 2010.
ACG, a manufacturer of epoxy, cyanate ester, bismaleimide and phenolic resin systems for use in aerospace, space and defence applications, will be co-exhibiting with its sister company, Richmond Aerovac, the global manufacturer of vacuum bagging products, principally for the defence, aerospace, wind energy, marine, motorsport and industrial sectors.
Items on the stand will include a door module for Delta Motorsport’s E-4 Coupe. Manufactured by KS Composites, this exhibit combines ACG’s BPS240 body panel for the outer shell with ACG’s DForm Deformable Composite System, one of the company’s latest innovations, for the inner structural element of the door. DForm, a long fibre advanced moulding system designed to offer rapid processing and no compromise in structural performance, is targeted at the medium/high volume automotive market.
Boeing has delivered the first of ten 787 Dreamliners to WestJet, marking the start of the airline's global expansion. Having long operated a fleet of Boeing single-aisle jets, WestJet will use the super-efficient, long-range 787-9 Dreamliner to profitably serve new international routes.
One of the most respected and successful names in motorsport is working with lightweighting and materials researchers at the AMRC to advance its processes for manufacturing recyclable composite components that extend useful lifetimes and reduce tooling costs.
The Middlesex production facility of Web Industries’ Aerospace market team has earned accreditation from Nadcap (the National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program) covering the facility’s composite cutting and kitting operations.
