JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Professor and Architect Mark Goulthorpe, of the MIT Department of Architecture, confirmed as guest keynote speaker for the Future of Composites in Construction.
JEC Europe 2012 - The DiAMon Plus™ cure and flow monitoring system offers an insight to composites manufacturing in real time and under real industrial conditions.
Now it is possible to keep track of the part forming inside the closed environment of its mould or tool.
This innovation offers significant benefits to composite parts manufacturers, such as:
• In situ and real-time process monitoring: resin arrival detection, temperature, conversion rate, and viscosity
• Tangible quality assessment of production
• Reduced manufacturing cost
The monitoring system utilizes the principles of dielectric sensing and cure kinetics. The sensory elements are tool-mounted cure and flow monitoring sensors and thermocouples. The entire system is integrated with innovative and scalable software and a user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI), in a robust industrial-type construction. The following process parameters are available in real time: glass transition temperature, degree of cure, resin viscosity and resin arrival. The entire solution is scalable and customised to match the end user’s specifications.
Applications: RTM/RFI/LCM, cure oven, autoclave, and pultrusion.

The RTM process grew out of the need to increase the manufacturing productivity at a lower cost. It also allows to make complex partin one shot. Here are a few examples and update of this...
