The 2019 Composites Europe trade show is set to take place in Stuttgart starting on the 10th of September and will be spread over 3 days. This year Hexcel innovations will be marketing a set of composite technologies, manufactured initially so as to prove useful to design engineers operating in the Marine, Wind Energy and Automotive industries.
The innovations which Hexcel intends to exhibit at the trade show consist of the company’s semi-pregs and surfacing prepregs intended for boat construction and wind turbine blades. The fibre-reinforced matrix items support a sturdy, long-lasting and paint-friendly external without the use of in-mould costs. They also lessen production cycles and cut down on the material expenses. HexPly XF2 prepreg, too, has an external which is ready to paint, directly from the mould, and sets aside more than 2 hours, for the manufacture of wind blades, of takt time. In order to exhibit the advantages of HexPly XF2 surface prepreg when used alongside Hexcel’s SuperFIT technology, a top boat constructor has produced a composite panel.
Mouldlife, which is among Hexcel’s Official Distribution network, delivers professional support to U.K.-based marine clients.
The company also faces pride in being able to exhibit the most recent golf shaft design from True Temper. The golf shaft is developed using HexTow carbon fiber.
Corima, a bike wheel distributer, has been a client of Hexcel’s for many years now in order to produce competition wheels, which cycling champions use, using the firm’s composite material. Corima intends to showcase their most recent 3-spoe wheel showing the usefulness of Hexcel’s carbon fibre prepreg and reinforcements. The advantages of the material include high stiffness, better power transfer, better vibration absorption, low weight, etc.
