SHOW daily CAM X 2018 8 WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2018 / DALLAS, TEXAS NEW TECHNOLOGY CERTIFIED COMPOSITES TECHNICIAN PROGRAM Enroll in the only certification program of its kind for the composites industry. GET CERTIFIED Take Your Career to the Next Level! Thermoplastic and thermoset specialty materials Dry fibers for aerospace, automotive enable high-speed processing Porcher Industries (Eclose-Badinières, France) and BGF Industries (Greensboro, NC, US), specialists in high-performance technical textiles and composites, are presenting dry fibers for aerospace and automotive and the STELIA thermoplastic fuselage demonstrator. The companies' recently-launched range of dry fiber products is said to offer a new way of processing materials out-of-autoclave for the aerospace and automotive sectors. The products feature carbon fiber with a range of binder interfaces and are optimized for AFP-made preforms for thermoset resin infusion or injection. They are said to enable high-speed processing of complex parts. The STELIA Arches Box TP, developed by Porcher Industries and five partner companies, is a thermoplastic fuselage demonstrator said to enable the first evaluation of this technology in a real industrial context. It features a Porcher Industries-developed organosheet from its PiPreg line as the material for the frames. Porcher Industries, Booth N37 PolyOne Advanced Composites (Avon Lake, OH, US) is highlighting its portfolio of continuous fiber composites, along with its processing and design expertise. With its products, PolyOne targets applications in the automotive, heavy truck, marine, consumer, industrial and electrical transmission and distribution markets. Here at CAMX, the company is featuring thermoplastics such as its Polystrand continuous fiber-rein- forced UD tapes and multiaxial laminates, Hammerhead marine composite panels and Polystrand structural sandwich panels. From its thermoset portfolio, the company is emphasizing Glasforms pultruded and filament-wound continuous glass and carbon fiber rods, tubes and custom profiles; Gordon Composites continuous glass and carbon fiber barstock and laminates; and Gordon Glass archery bow limbs. PolyOne experts are presenting six technical and educational sessions highlighting advances in materials, processing and testing technologies as part of the CAMX Conference Program. PolyOne also is demonstrating forming and installation techniques for thermoplastic composite materials in live presentations at the Composites One/Closed Mold Alliance demo area at scheduled intervals throughout the week. PolyOne Advanced Composites, Booth AA13 Submicron-level vacuum mixer eliminates air bubbles Thinky USA (Tokyo, Japan) is emphasizing its vacuum mixer, ARV-310P, which is said to enable uniform mixing and elimination of submicron- level air bubbles with improved functionality. Combining vacuum pressure reduction function with planetary rotation and revolution mixing, the mixer is designed for efficient elimination of submicron-level air bubbles for general purposes. The new LCD touch panel display improves quality and traceability. Thinky USA, Booth BB56 Porcher Industries thermoplastic composites R&D engineer Pierre-Yves Gandon is giving a presentation titled "Design to Cost Concept for Thermoplastic Laminates," Thursday, 9:30 a.m., East Fork, Ballroom D3.
