Formax has recently installed a new multiaxial machine and a laminating line which are both now in production.
According to Formax, their specially developed Karl Mayer Carbon Malitronic Multiaxial machine has a variable width from 1000mm to 1600mm that allows for unique new lightweight constructions to be made with minimised waste. Formax has also recently installed a new laminating line that they say will combine surface veils with existing fabrics for applications that require demanding surface finishes such as Class A surfaces for automotive panels.
Formax say they have New Constructions now available and these will be showcased at Composites Europe. These include:
- Laminated surface veils for Class A surface finishes
- Lightweight 0/90 fabrics
- Ply Orientations from +/-30
- Balanced Biaxials (+/-/+) from 200gsm to ensure symmetrical fabrics
Formax can be found in Hall 4, stand E30 at the show.
Manufacturers of storage tanks and anti-static lining coatings can gain a competitive edge by switching to TUBALL graphene nanotube-based concentrates for their products, according to OCSiAl.
With just two weeks to go until the first Global Composites Conference, co-hosted by the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) and NetComposites, Communications Manager Siobhan Longhurst caught up with speaker Shridhar Nath of GE Global Research. Shridhar will be presenting on ‘Technology Trends on Additive, Energy and Other Composite Applications.’
The 9th International Conference on Advanced Composites in Construction, ACIC 2019, will take place on 3-5 September 2019 at the University of Birmingham, UK, and abstracts are invited on relevant subjects.
