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.
JEC Europe 2015 - The Industrial Technology Centre of Fukui prefecture (ITCF), Japan, succeeded in developing the first ultimately thin prepreg sheet (20 micrometres in thickness, fibre volume 60%).
This unique sheet was produced using a thin-ply technology developed at Fukui. Thin-ply laminates moulded with these prepreg sheets are very resistant to fracture. Furthermore, thin prepreg sheets can be manufactured from low-cost large-tow carbon (e.g. 24K, 50K, 60K) at high production speed (10m/min). Therefore, both high performance and low cost can be achieved.The companies in Fukui also use various other carbon composite technologies, collectively called "Fukui Technologies", such as: tow spreading technology (Fukui method), thin-prepreg sheets, thin-ply laminates, warp knitting technology, semi-prepreg sheets (for UD and multi-axial CFRTP), C/C composites, hybrid drill (an innovative drill that reduces burr), CFRTP prepreg sheets, colloid & surface science, spread-tow fabrics (weaving technology) and tri-axial woven fabrics.More information:http://www.fklab.fukui.fukui.jp/kougi/Booth: L75
Bigger than ever, the upcoming JEC Europe 2015 event will present innovations from the 35 industrial segments,...
