RAMPF Tooling Solutions, RAMPF Composite Solutions and US subsidiary RAMPF Group Inc will exhibit at this year's JEC World.
RAMPF Tooling Solutions will exhibit the RAKU TOOL range of liquid, paste and board materials, which have been developed for the construction of models and moulds in the composites industry. The epoxy and polyurethane systems cover a wide temperature range and exhibit excellent physical and mechanical properties. The RAMPF team of experts provides customers across the globe with swift advice on choosing the most suitable materials and processing methods.
RAMPF Composite Solutions will focus on carbon fibre and glass fibre composites for the aviation and medical sectors. The company, based in Burlington, Ontario, Canada, is showcasing its expertise in construction, structure analysis and manufacturing for optimising weight, rigidity, vibrations, materials, costs, environment, combustion, toxicity, timing and manufacturing feasibility of high-tech composite parts and components.
RAMPF Group Inc is a supplier of RAKU TOOL liquid, paste, and block materials, serving the NAFTA markets (United States, Mexico, Canada). For the composite manufacturing sector on these markets, RAMPF has developed the cyanate ester infusion system RAKU FST, which is used to manufacture secondary structures in passenger aircraft (e.g. interior parts, doors and cabins, and evacuation system components) and for seat covers and components in business jets. The low-viscosity infusion system boasts first-class mechanical properties and can be used for applications with FST (fire, smoke, and toxicity) requirements.

The Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI) has announced the Phase I completion of a project led by DuPont, partnering with Fibrtec and Purdue University, focused on the creation of a new carbon fibre composite manufacturing process that exhibits improved fabric formability characteristics compared to traditional woven materials.
CGTech will showcase its expanded range of software applications for the aerospace industry at the Farnborough International Airshow on 16-20 July 2018.
Powertrains, be they conventional, hybrid or fully electric, will need to be light in weight if carmakers are to meet the stringent regulations on carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) to come into force in 2025 – and composites will be key to making this happen. This was the message highlighted at the Lightweight Composite Solutions Conference organised by Vyncolit and Sumitomo Bakelite Co Ltd and held in Gent, Belgium.
