Sigmatex will showcase its range of high-performance carbon fibre textiles at JEC World, and introduce its design capability to the market.
The sigmaDesign service provides custom weave patterns for cosmetic and performance based applications. Sigmatex's in-house design experts are able to create bespoke fabric designs, predominantly using carbon fibre combined with a wide choice of complimentary weft options. The sigmaDesign service takes a customer from initial discussion through to design concept and digital simulation, providing the opportunity to view and amend the design before finally being woven. This technology is already being adopted by high end automotive, sports and luxury consumer goods markets. sigmaDesign offers brands an opportunity to develop exclusive products, providing a unique look contrasting established composite woven products.

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.
