Ever since my childhood, I've been wildly fascinated by planes, rockets, and the very cool idea of deep space travel. Buzz Lightyear was my hero. As an adult, the idea of traveling to the stars has continued to intrigue me and has led me into a career focused in the aerospace industry. The Herculean effort required in order to accomplish such an engineering feat seems to becoming more and more of a reality.

 

Beyond funding, one of the countless important items that could hinder our progress of space exploration is the impact of inconsistent or poor composites quality.

I have to admit, it’s absolutely amazing to be a part of the composites industry and witness the steady growth, continuous improvement and developing technologies. Business is booming. As reported by JEC*, from 2014 to 2016, the market grew in value to $82 billion USD, or by 11%. Not too shabby. Every indication is the growth will continue.

Top 5 Things You Should Know about Autoclave Thermocouple Junctions

Posted by Pat Durkin

Whether you make composite parts for commercial aircraft, defense, automotive or sports, you know why you do what you do and how to do it. That’s why you have clients who trust your products and trust your team to make them to the highest quality every time. 

 

The good news is chemistry and physics are the same. They'll never change. It really doesn’t matter if you are making barrel section 41 for the Boeing 787, the Predator drone composite wing or a super lightweight Tour de France racing bike. Recipes for production might be different between manufacturers but the end goal is a constant: Make a lightweight structure that can contribute to advancement of aircraft, military and consumer lives.

5 Increasingly Hot Thermocouple Wire & Cable Market Trends

Posted by Vlad Fedorchak

Mar 9, 2017 10:31:17 AM

In the past year, I jotted down a number of wire and cable market trends that I’ve noticed. Let’s review a few recent trends and perhaps we can get a discussion going on how we all must evolve to become more dynamic businesses going forward. Some of these trends are general in nature and some are industry-specific, but relate in some way to the overall wire and cable market.

Spotlight Series on Temperature Measurement 

 

Since World War II, thermocouples have played a key role in the aerospace and aviation industries. From providing thermocouples that helped monitor the exhaust gas temperature of the “Flying Fortresses”, to supplying sensors that help monitor aircraft composites, to providing the sensors in astronaut power packs, our history in aerospace is a long one. At the heart of each of these applications is the need for reliability across a wide range of temperatures as well as accurate temperature monitoring.
