Eurocarbon is deelnemer in het OPZuid project "Proeftuin thermoplastisch composiet"
Het doel voor Eurocarbon is om restmateriaal te hergebruiken in hoogwaardige vezelversterkte kunststoffen.
The robotic composite fibre braiding machine.
Fokker and NLR have opened in Marknesse a manufacturing plant for composite aircraft components. The plant will produce composite landing gear components while also developing new manufacturing techniques for high performance composites. Other high-tech companies that develop composites can also use the facility for testing their materials and automating production processes. Ineke Dezentjé Hamming-Bluemink, CEO of FME and initiator of Smart Industry, officially opened the Pilot Plant.
The new ‘Automated Composite Manufacturing Pilot Plant’ is widely regarded as a key step in developing expert knowledge of composites in the Netherlands. Composites are increasing replacing steel or aluminium parts in the aviation industry; moreover, composites are often stronger, more sustainable, less expensive, and capable of being applied in a wide variety of areas.
(GREENSBORO, NC) – Highland Industries, Inc. has signed an agreement with Eurocarbon B.V. for the exclusive manufacture and sale of braided and woven products utilizing Eurocarbon’s proprietary braiding technology in North and South America.
Eurocarbon uses carbon, glass, aramid, polyester and other polymeric yarns to produce tubular and flat braids, woven tapes and fabric. Eurocarbon B.V. is recognized as the industry leader for producing over braided preforms for structural applications that are later resin treated. The resulting composite materials can be engineered to create strong, lightweight, and cost-effective alternatives for use in a wide range of applications.
“Eurocarbon’s innovative technologies make them an ideal strategic partner for us,” says David Jackson, Highland President and COO. “This partnership adds to our portfolio of high tech applications for enhancing safety and further extends the broad range of capabilities we can bring to our customers’ design challenges.”
“We are pleased to be working with Highland,” says Arnold Voskamp, President of Eurocarbon. “Their team is knowledgeable, capable, and enthusiastic about building the markets for braided solutions in the western hemisphere.” Customers will be able to work with Highland and Eurocarbon design teams on braided solutions immediately.
