Acrosoma presented their 3-D sandwich panel, aimed at combining minimum weight, maximum strength and minimal thermal expansion, at the Stade Convention last week.
Acrosoma has developed a technology to produce tri-dimensional stitched sandwich panels that have less weight, high strength and minimal thermal expansion. They have also performed theoretical and applied research to explore the mechanical and thermal behaviour of tri-dimensional sandwich panels.
A horizontal transport tool made out of composite Acrosoma panels is now transporting and positioning the covers of the wing of the Airbus A350 in the Airbus production hall in Stade and Illescas. As well as aircraft production, Acrosoma panels are now being used in wind turbine rotor blades, truck trailers and other structural applications.
ThermHex Waben and EconCore will exhibit at the IAA Commercial Vehicles exhibition in Hannover, Germany, on 20-27 September 2018.
Technical Fibre Products (TFP) will exhibit nonwovens for use in surface finishing, imparting EMI shielding or fire protection, and other transport applications, at the JEC Conference on The Future of Composites in Transportation, taking place in Chicago, US, on 27-28 June.
TRB Lightweight Structures has developed a carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) sandwich panel door leaf using a bio-based resin and a 100% recycled foam core.
