Angstron Materials has teamed with Stryke Industries to accelerate development and commercialisation of graphene products for military and defence applications.
The Fort Wayne, Indiana, US-based business development firm provides a multi-tiered network of resources designed to promote economies of scale, enhanced design-for-manufacturability and shorter lead times for bringing new products to market.
“It’s a good fit for Angstron,” says Ian Fuller, Angstron’s Vice President for Business Development and Engineering. “One of Stryke’s specialties is its ability to identify and implement disruptive technologies that can help equip military personnel and provide problem-solving solutions for defence industries. Our graphene materials and technologies meet thermal, electrical, energy, mechanical and barrier specifications. We also have the quality systems and manufacturing capacity to support large scale production.”
Headquartered in Dayton, Ohio, US, Angstron Materials claim to be the world’s largest producer of graphene materials. The graphene manufacturer is ISO 9001:2008 certified for full-scale graphene production. It says an annual production capacity of 300 tons supports a range of projects dedicated to commercialising raw materials and graphene-enhanced products. Current production and research efforts include thermal management, energy storage and nanocomposites.
ZSK will hold its bi-annual technology showcase on 21-22 September 2018 at its Krefeld, Germany, headquarters. The Embroidery Technology Show assembles more than 25 exhibitors from around the world to discuss emerging trends in the embroidery manufacturing industry and demonstrate the latest products produced using techniques such as tailored fibre placement (TFP) or smart textiles.
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.
