L&L Products will launch of its Continuous Composite Systems (CCS) technology at CAMX 2018, Dallas, Texas, US, on 16-18 October.
CCS combines engineered sealants and adhesives with a fibre reinforced composite carrier in a two-dimensional profile designed to provide strength, stiffness and rigidity to a lightweight structure. L&L’s CCS are composed of a variety of forms including CCS Co-Ex, CCS Set, CCS Hybrid, and CCS Extreme.
Key attributes of the new products are said to include:
L&L Products will highlight the features of CCS at booth N21.
“We’re thrilled to be launching CCS at the CAMX show this year," says Hank Richardson, Senior Product Development Engineer at L&L Products. "It’s applicable to such a wide range of industries and is extremely customisable. With L&L being traditionally focused on the automotive industry, rolling out CCS has been an exciting venture for the team.”
With its CCS products and process, L&L Products aims to deliver a cost-effective, ultra-high strength reinforcement solution that brings extensive engineering knowledge, advanced CAE modelling, and the ability for adhesive use in a variety of applications.
Composites are considered hard to join and researchers have predominantly focused on mechanical joining technologies including crimping, gluing, riveting or screwing. The Composites Europe exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany, on 6-8 November will show the advantages and drawbacks of each of these processes.
The Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) and the Institute of Plastics Processing (IKV) at RWTH Aachen University are commencing a study into the use of thermoplastic tapes in injection moulded parts. Companies interested in joining the study are invited to a kick-off event during Fakuma 2018 in Friedrichshafen, Germany, on 18 October.
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.
