Aerospace Doesn't Need Inconsistent Composites Quality [SAMPE Seattle 2017]

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.  


After attending the SAMPE Utah show several weeks ago, I must admit that I've learned a great deal about the aviation/aerospace industry and, more specifically, the importance of quality and accountability in autoclave composites curing operations. Not only was it a networking opportunity, but I was also able to build upon my expanding knowledge of thermocouple challenges and relevant solutions designed specifically for composites manufacturers.


I'm looking forward to SAMPE Seattle 2017. For one, I've never been to a large trade show and this is one of the biggest for the industry. However, what really excites me is being able to share the valuable details of our Failure is NOT an option commitment to providing 100% tested pre-made autoclave thermocouple systems to aviation and how aerospace autoclave operations continues to yield measurable ROI with our customers.


If you’re going to SAMPE Seattle 2017, I encourage you to visit us at booth C9. We will be there to discuss how you can utilize our patented AccuClave® thermocouple system to address numerous composites curing problems and challenges.
