SHOWdaily CAMX 2018 6 THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2018 / DALLAS, TEXAS 704 362 1922 DURABILITY IN THE BAG Premium Reusable Vacuum Bagging Materials • German Quality • Made-to-Order • Exceptional Service Check out this video! See us at CAMX – Booth M53 PCD drills for machining composites RobbJack Corp. (Lincoln, CA, US) is highlighting its high-performance tools for machining composite materials, including its line of PCD drills. The company says its PCD drills outperform diamond-coated drills when cutting materials with high plastic content because they can be resharpened and maintain a sharper cutting edge. The company's featured PCD Tipped W-Point drill is a high-performance tool has a solid polycrystalline diamond tip and a sharp outer edge that is said to cleanly shear the material without delamination, uncut fibers or pullout. The solid-tipped PCD drill is said to provide 25 times longer tool life in CFRP applications compared to a traditional carbide drill. RobbJack Corp., Booth Y39 Naval boat gets a lighter, less expensive upgrade Structural Composites Inc. is featuring the US Navy 7 Meter Advanced Combatant Craft (7ACC), which is reportedly 2,100 lb lighter and less expensive to manufacture vs. -rst-generation Navy rigid in‚atable boats (RIBs). Technologies include CoCure Advanced Marine Coatings (commercially available from Interplastic), PRISMA single-skin construction and Holistic Shock Mitigation. Thermoset molding compounds, R&D services on display IDI Composites International (Noblesville, IN, US) is featuring its customized polyester/vinyl ester-based bulk molding compounds (BMC), sheet molding compounds (SMC), and an advanced line of Structural Thermoset Composites (STC - Ultra Performance Moldable Composites) that are manufactured in both sheet and bulk formats. Company officials are available to discuss the IDI 3i Composites Technology Center, which serves as the research and development division of IDI, where the company generates and proves new ideas, approaches, and materials to address the engineering and performance challenges of its customers. This division has helped develop Fortium high glass fiber composites, with 40-65% discontinuous glass fiber, and Ultrium carbon fiber composites. IDI Composites International, Booth X4 3D preforming for oil and gas Seriforge is exhibiting the -rst commer- cial application for its unique 3D textile preform technology, a slip ring for a frac plug downhole tool for the oil and gas industry, replacing traditional prepreg materials. Alongside are carbon -ber composite ‚oor panel samples showing Seriforge's ability to achieve Z-direction reinforcement through foam core and at edge closeouts where delamination is otherwise an issue.
