Manufacturing for the aerospace industry faced roadblocks in 2019, which slowed the speed of innovation. This article looks at the three biggest challenges engineers in the aerospace industry faced in 2019 and anticipated solutions in 2020.
Thermoset composites are formed using glass, carbon, or aramid fibers, which are then combined with resins such as polyesters, vinyl esters, epoxies, or phenolic resins.
Introducing Fiber, the first 3D printer with AFP continuous carbon fiber reinforcement using high temperature resistant PEEK and PEKK, designed to deliver industrial fiber performance on the desktop
Since 2014, there has been a surge in investments in companies engaging in the 3D printing of composites, with almost $250 million raised to date.
Bio-based products are those with components wholly or partially derived plants or renewable marine, agricultural or forest materials. These products help people who buy them to choose more sustainable options.
Carbide is composed of a combination of the elements of carbon and tungsten. When these two elements are mended together they create an alloy that is resistant to heat, scratches, pitting, and rust.

Humans and robots can now share tasks - and this new partnership is on the verge of revolutionizing the production line. Today's drivers like data-driven services, decreasing product lifetimes and the need for product differentiation are putting flexibility paramount, and no technology is better suited to meet these needs than the Omron TM Series Collaborative Robot. With force feedback, collision detection technology and an intuitive, hand-guided teaching mechanism, the TM Series cobot is designed to work in immediate proximity to a human worker and is easier than ever to train on new tasks.
