Chomarat has obtained the certification EN 9100: 2009, "Quality Management standard for the aerospace industry."
This European Standard defines specific performance and customer satisfaction requirements for the aerospace industry to meet precise quality goals. Security concerns are high in aerospace; they are also synonymous with important business issues. “This certification EN 9100 is a real opportunity to strengthen CHOMARAT’s presence on this market and further develop our carbon range,” said Michel Cognet, Group CEO Chomarat.
Meeting the demands of aerospace builders and equipment manufacturers, Chomarat says its C-PLY Bi-Angle Thin Ply allows optimisation of all composite aerospace parts. ˝In aeronautics, thin plies (50-75 g/m²) in C-PLY Bi-Angle are a key element in its performance for parts such as aerospace fuselage components,” explains Cognet. Other parts, like beams, can also benefit from this multiaxial assembly at shallow 20° or 30° angles, which allows weight savings – up to 30% compared to a standard carbon construction. In the aviation sector, this material is being tested in parts like wings and wing components. A helicopter part has already been produced by VX Aerospace (USA) using Chomarat C-PLY Bi-Angle. The research team is currently working on the project of a demonstrator for a lightweight sport aircraft incorporating all these innovations.
CRP Technology collaborated with the Department of Aerospace Science and Technology of the Politecnico di Milano (PoliMi) on the construction of parts for the aeroelastic wind tunnel demonstrators for ‘Aeroelastic Flutter Suppression (AFS)’ e ‘GLAMOUR’ projects.
Research to develop a revolutionary high-performance composite metal hybrid stabiliser bar for trucks and trains has entered a new phase. The findings from the project to date show that the technology has the potential to spin out into other sectors such as aerospace and could see the UK take a global lead with this disruptive technology.
Bindatex is celebrating 10 years of partnership and delivering 50 tonnes of multiaxial fabrics to a global composites reinforcement manufacturer. The specialist slitting service enables the manufacturer to supply its customers with material in a wide variety of widths.
